Retirees love Gemini Court Holiday Apartments

During the winter months, Burleigh Heads is a wonderful place for retirees to spend time relaxing in the mild, Gold Coast clime.
 
Burleigh Heads accommodation
 
Gemini Court Holiday Apartments is the chosen Burleigh Heads accommodation for retirees due to our spectacular views, convenient self-contained kitchens and location, close to golf courses, shopping, cafes and lovely walks.
 
Let’s have a look at some of the great things our retiree visitors love to do.
 
Gold Coast Golf courses
 
Fancy a game of golf?  Burleigh Heads and surrounding suburbs are home to a large number of golf courses merely kilometres from the beach.  Choices range from championship courses, including Burleigh Golf Club and The Colonial, to local lower rated courses.
 
Burleigh Heads walking trails
 
Did you know you can walk from one end of the Coast to the other following pathways that travel through Burleigh Heads!  But most of our Gemini Court Holiday Apartment guests are inclined to stay local, walking the easy pathway through Burleigh Heads National Park and taking in spectacular views, native legends and wandering wildlife.  The well-maintained pathways, both beachfront and through the national park, attract people keen to get out in the sunshine, all day every day.

Burleigh Heads is close to many friendly clubs
 
If you’re planning a longer stay, the Gold Coast is home to many amazing clubs.  You don’t have to miss out on bridge or even art.  Burleigh Heads also has beachfront surf clubs serving great meals at reasonable prices with fabulous views.  Just ask the friendly reception staff at Gemini Court about all the many wonderful clubs perfect for retirees in the Burleigh area.
 
Burleigh Heads shopping and cafes
 
Burleigh Heads is famous for its village atmosphere, and the James Street shopping precinct, a mere stroll from Gemini Court, exudes a bohemian feel of chic shops combined with laid-back cafes and hip bars.  But sometimes our guests yearn for larger shopping centres, in which case we are a 15 minute drive or on the bus route to both Pacific Fair and Robina Town Centre.  Both huge centres with a great array of mainstream and stylish shops.
 
Fine dining and a quiet drink at beautiful Burleigh
 
Burleigh Heads on Australia’s Gold Coast is a beach location with a difference.  Burleigh is home to an award-winning selection of restaurants and bars.  Treat yourself to a gourmet experience at Oskars, or sit back with a glass of wine and take in the wonderful ocean views from any of a number of beachfront bars and clubs just a stroll from your Gemini Court Burleigh Heads accommodation.

Gold Coast art and theatre
 
The Gold Coast is a great location to enjoy the arts.  Burleigh Heads is close to many community theatres as well as the Gold Coast Arts Centre.  Also home to hidden artists and galleries, if you love your entertainment, you won’t be bored.

Burleigh Heads coffee culture

Some coffee tips from one of our guests…
 
I have to say that my best friend and I really enjoyed our weekend at Gemini Court Holiday Apartments.  Of course, we chose the best Burleigh Heads accommodation we could find with an amazing view.  Really unbelievable!  But what we really got out of our stay was the great array of coffee shops we could hang out at and chat.
 
Coffee shops Burleigh Heads
 
So here are three of our favs.
 
The Nook
 
We strolled down the hill from Gemini Court Holiday Apartments and right there on the beach was this cute little coffee nook, called ‘The Nook’!!  The coffee was really delicious, piping hot, perfect for warming us whilst we watched the morning surfers carving up the waves.
 
Quest Coffee Roasters
 
Definitely our James Street favourite.  Only a short walk from our Burleigh Heads accommodation, the two of us squeezed onto the bench out the front and chatted endlessly as a steady stream of Burleigh Heads locals cruised by.  The owner, Paul, is a master roaster so the coffee had a great flavour.  Clearly, we weren’t the only ones impressed as the cafe was always full.
 
Gemini Court Holiday Apartments
 
Borough Barista
 
Just opposite the beach, Borough is a tiny cafe with wonderfully fresh food and great coffee.  A bit of a breakfast hang for us during our short stay as it was so close to our Burleigh Heads accommodation.  We loved seeing all the fresh ingredients in crates on the workbench or on top of display cabinets, no artificial additives here.
 
I’ve only mentioned a few, but, seriously, Burleigh Heads is full of wonderful cafes and restaurants, not to mention stylish boutiques.  We didn’t really need to venture anywhere else, as everything was walking distance from our Gemini Court Holiday Apartment.  We’ll definitely be back again as soon as we can get another weekend free.
