I am a licensed Uber driver, so let me know if you need to book a lift to get you to/from your accommodation, or to anywhere else nearby (I cover the whole area from the Sunshine Coast north of Brisbane to Byron Bay down south across the NSW border).
Happy to be booked for day trips to chauffeur you around to destinations you choose. Or just sit back and relax and let me decide for you, as I take you to my favourite hidden gems in, and around the Gold Coast.

I have a love for photography, so happy to get up early and take you out to get some sunrise and sunset shots. I also do some drone photography if you want to try one for yourself and see how much fun they are to fly.
I have a passion for music and have DJed in nightclubs around Sydney and the world. Have my own set of CDJ2000 Nexus decks and DJM900 mixer - and will be more than happy to give you a crash course in DJing, if that is something that appeals to you

Each day you can choose between either a HelloFresh home-cooked meal (choose the recipe you would like me to cook for you), or breakfast with cereal, toast, eggs (your way), bacon, and either a juice, Dulce Gusto coffee, or fruit smoothie.

There is a shared laundry with a washing machine and dryer, located just off the living room. Place your items to be washed in the laundry basket located in the Guest Room cupboard, then place in the laundry for me to wash and dry for you. Or you're welcome to use it yourself if you prefer.

The SHARED space:
You also have shared access to the main living area, which includes a large balcony with inbuilt BBQ, that overlooks the ocean, surf beach, the main Indy Car race track chicane, and the resort's lagoon-style pool with sand beach. You are almost guaranteed to see whales from the balcony during the whale migration season.

The living room contains an Ultra HDR 4K 65" TV with a 7.1 Dolby Atmos surround system, and matching lighting provided through a Hue Sync light box and Hue Play lights. There is an Xbox 360 for gamers, a Blu -Ray player, Apple TV for streaming services and screen sharing, a star gazing 350x magnification telescope, and Binoculars for whale watching.
The TV has inbuilt apps including Google Assistant, Alexa, and the following streaming services provided

Situated close to Main Beach, with Cavil Ave about 15 mins walk away (or step out directly on to the Tram station located at the rear of the resort and take the G:Line tram two stops south towards Broadbeach. Day trip cards can be purchased for $10 for unlimited rides).

The local's favourite, Budd's Beach is located 5 min walk to the west and has perfect views of the river and canal areas.
The surf beach is literally across the road, a short 100m walk away, with a flagged section patrolled by lifeguards located immediately in front of the resort.
A convenience store and bottle shop are located directly across the road along with the best diner in Surfers Paradise (GMC Diner) who's Fish and Chips and milkshakes are legendary. Try the GMC breakfast stacker for a real taste treat.
