Theme Park Central - Holiday House

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

The perfect holiday house to use as your base while exploring the theme park capital of Australia. All are only 5 - 10 mins drive away.

Helensvale Railway Station is only 6 km away where trains go South as far as Burliegh Waters and go North as far as Brisbane airports.

This is not your normal Gold Coast canal location! Situated on the edge of a peaceful, large lake, but only very short drive from all the amenities, such as shops, restaurants, cafes, theme parks and Golf Courses. Suffers Paradise beach is 20 minutes drive away and Tambourine Mountain is about 30 minutes.

This lovely home has:

5 Bedrooms (one of them is in rumpus area)

4 Bathrooms + 1 power room (5 toilets in total)

2 Dining Areas

2 Living Areas

1 Huge Alfresco, undercover, screened outdoor living area

Would suit 2 families due to the configuration and private spaces.

There's a double shade-sail at front undercover parking.

Open plan kitchen with gas cooktop, espresso coffee machine, dishwasher and microwave. The adjacent laundry contains a front loader washing machine & dryer.

Timber bi-folds open from the kitchen and dining areas into a huge screened and tiled entertaining area with Weber BBQ and timber outdoor setting.

The main lounge has Sony 55 inch wide screen television with Foxtel, Sony blu-ray DVD player, PlayStation 3, a surround sound system and really comfy leather lounge with 2 recliners.

The second living area downstairs also has a leather lounge. And can be converted into children playroom.

Your year round comfort is assured with reverse cycle air conditioning and ceiling fans in every room.

Bedroom one - The master bedroom has a luxurious king size pillow top sleigh bed, TV and ensuite with spa bath and lake views. Timber bi-folds open to a private insect free deck where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the peaceful sunset.

Bedroom two - The second bedroom has an equally luxurious pillow top queen sized bed. This room also has views over the water. Bedroom three and four has 2 single beds in each room. And there are two additional single beds in the upstairs landing area.

There are there bathrooms upstairs. Downstairs there is a toilet and a bathroom (shower + toilet) in the outside area near the swimming pool.

The property is child friendly with yard and pool fencing, even to the lake & jetty. You can oversee the children in the pool from the kitchen, dining and entertaining areas.

Fish or feed the ducks and swans from the private jetty. You are welcome to bring your own boat. We feed the birds too, so you will get a lovely variety of doves, eastern rosellas, galahs plus many others.

The fantastic swimming pool is a free form design with horizon edge, 12 meter lap swimming length, 3 different seating positions including wide steps for the kids to play on.

There's a 3 person canoe to play with, plus lots of movies and games.

There's a great park just around the corner with a great kids playground, and walking track.

This house is in a quiet neighbourhood, very private and really well positioned. Short drive to the Theme Parks (5-10 minutes), Golf Courses (15 minutes), Surfers beaches (20 minutes) Harbour Town Outlet Shopping (15 minutes) and Tambourine Mountain (30 minutes), - But hey! - we think when you've done the 'obligatory' tourist stuff, you'll just not bother to go out, but enjoy being in the lovely surroundings of your own private resort. About 1km away there's fab fish & chips, a great Thai restaurant, bakery, liquor store, supermarket, hairdresser & beautician - even a real estate if you fall in love with the area!

We look forward to hearing from you and invite you to take some time out in our special part of the world.

CORPORATE RENTAL rates are available on request for booking of 4 weeks or longer.

Sunset and Pool Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Theme Park Central" aka "Sunset Terrace" Holiday house.

The house is set on the canals around Helensvale. The pool overlooks the canal and had amazing views of the sunset.

The house is well laid out with living and dining areas downstairs and bedrooms upstairs.

There are four good sized bedrooms and a second living area off the main stairs set up with two single beds. The main bedroom has a great deck to sit on, from here you can admire the sunset and keep an eye on the kids in the pool.

There are ample bathrooms for all, two of the bedrooms share a bathroom between them. There is also a full bathroom downstairs off the pool area and an outside shower. The outside shower makes an excellent place to wash the dogs off after they had been at the beach.

The house is only a short drive to the theme parks. It was so nice only driving 10 minutes to movie world and wet n wild.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

First stayed at sunset terrace 6 years ago. Have lost count how many times we have been since, but pretty sure it's been every year since. The house is great, Good location easy to find and a great base to explore the Gold Coast, or just laze about at. close to theme parks, Westfield Helensvale and the motorway. Great outdoor area. We have a boat so the mooring is a great benefit. Pet friendly. Communication with the owners has always been professional and good.

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here on out trip to the Gold Coast. It was a perfect base for all the theme parks. The house was lovely with plenty of room for the 7 of us with each bedroom having an ensuite. You couldn't beat the views over the water and the pool and the outside enclosed dining area was great. Just be careful of the slippery tiles when it rains! The kitchen had pretty much everything you could need to cook up a feast but there were also some great dining options nearby, Sheetal Indian was lovely as was the local fish and chips and Thai restaurant. We also had fun in the canoe and it was great that there were some toddler toys/ safety fence and barrier as well as porta cots and high chair. It was great having a laundry and washing line but would have been nice to have a dryer for wet days. We really enjoyed our stay and it certainly felt like a home away from home.
