I wish

Growing up in Brisbane, you were either a Gold Coast person or a Sunshine Coast person. For me, it was the Gold Coast. I know it has many faults but I love it, warts and all. I love the never ending beaches where you can walk for miles and miles. I love how the highrise buildings twinkle in the night and I love the city life on the beach.

Beach and sunset

I lived there for three years back in the early ’90’s and my husband and I bought a unit there in the early noughties. We had dreams of retiring to this particular unit and it was bought with that in mind. However, settling in Sydney on our return from overseas we realised that it would be a long time before we get to move into our unit and we could use the funds for our home in Sydney.


But around this time of year I get a hankering to own a little piece of paradise. Somewhere to move to for the summer break. Main Beach is my favourite spot as it has a good beach, great shops and cafes and is not as hectic as it’s neighbour, Surfers Paradise. We would HAVE to have a three bedroom unit so family can come and stay and it HAS to have ocean views. The beauty of a unit for a holiday retreat is that you can lock it up and walk away leaving the Manager to take care of the maintenance, security and shared facilities.


So I’ve been doing a little real estate trawling and come up with this little gem.

We could sit in our out and pass the time

We could sit in or out and pass the time

If it gets hot we can cool off in our own lap pool

If it gets hot, we can cool off in our own lap pool
