Australian Traveller – Sleep in style at Bon Sol in Burleigh Heads

Let your appreciation of good design guide you to Burleigh Heads for a very stylish stay.

There is a small coastal town in northern NSW that serves as the perfect archetype for the 1980s Field of Dreams quote: “If you build it, he will come.” No, Kevin Costner didn’t build a baseball diamond in the Tweed Coast town of Cabarita Beach, but some clever hoteliers rebuilt an old surf motel there, and yes, the people did, indeed, come.

“Gunning for the great outdoors? A romantic getaway? Or perhaps a rural retreat with the family? Whatever you desire, there’s a big, beautiful country out there waiting to welcome you.

Whether you are looking for quirky artistic gems, relaxing wilderness retreats or island oases, the Sunshine State has it all.

THE LOCATION A two-bedroom apartment in the middle of one of the Gold Coast’s most happening ’hoods. It’s across the road from a sweep of pandanus-fringed beach, 15 minutes’ drive from Coolangatta Airport.

THE PLACE Pass through a shared entrance in a 1960s residential block of six apartments to find Pandanus, your designer stay with custom interiors by designer Anna Spiro, the clever creative behind Halcyon House.

THE EXPERIENCE The Bang & Olufsen sound system, Moss River linen and vintage cocktail trolley (stocked to order at extra cost) will have you dreaming of staying forever. Pop the cork off the welcoming bottle of Krug and soak it up from the balcony overlooking the waterfront esplanade. A second apartment, Hibiscus, will open in 2020.

DON’T MISS Order Bon Sol’s “beach club” set with kitsch umbrellas, lounges and an esky filled with drinks ($150). Heading out for dinner? Try Restaurant Labart, the mod-Oz diner from chef Alex Munoz (formerly of Sydney’s Monopole and Cirrus Dining).
