We lived here in a top-floor apartment for about 6 weeks while we organised permanent accommodation on the Gold Coast. I am in love with Burleigh Heads as it is far enough out of Surfer's Paradise to be virtually free of the throng of tourists that plague the coast. It has a really relaxed, suburban, beachside feel to it - very pleasant indeed. Burleigh On The Beach is admittedly a bit out of town (about a 5-10 minute walk), but that is hardly a deal-breaker. If you are staying without your own transport, then there is a bus stop on the Gold Coast Highway, and taxis are plentiful.
The room we stayed in didn't seem to be plagued by the traffic noise that others have mentioned, but we were on the beach side of the complex with a southward-facing room. The room was fantastic for our needs, with one bedroom, a well-appointed bathroom, decent sized lounge room (with a fold-out couch for our visitors), and a balcony overlooking the pool (we spent a LOT of time out here!).
Unfortunately there is no elevator, so that involved carting all of our stuff up three flights of stairs.
The pool and barbecue area is great for lazing away the balmy evenings, and the complex is a stone's throw from the patrolled beach.
So if you're looking for somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of Surfer's Paradise, but still want to enjoy everything the Gold Coast has to offer, Burleigh Heads is a definite winner, and Burleigh On The Beach is a terrific place to stay.
