Gemini Court Holiday Apartments

I stayed at Gemini Court Holiday Apartments in Burleigh Heads on July 2-7, 2010 as the third stop on a multi-destination holiday on the Gold Coast.
Although this was my third trip to the Gold Coast, it was my first time in Burleigh Heads. After checking out a few properties in the area early on, a few friends and colleagues told me this property was awesome. That, in addition to the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor, gave me no hesitation to give it a try.
From the first time I contacted Gemini Court all the way until the end of my 5 night stay, Annastasia and staff were very accommodating, friendly and professional. Due to numerous flight troubles from the United States, I was able to rebook reservations without any hassle or fee (it seems like that's what you get everywhere else!) I originally booked a 2 bedroom standard apartment as the rates were only slightly higher than the 1 bedrooms (I was also told the 1 bedrooms are mostly on the lower floors), but got upgraded to a 2 bedroom hinterland superior, so I really lucked out! Keep in mind that this property is situated on a hill, so you'll get ocean views just about anywhere you are on it.
Check-in was effortless and I was in apartment 20 in the back tower within minutes. I was completely blown away at the size and layout of the apartment: it was completely renovated and had brand new modern furnishings including a lounge room with a multi-section leather sofa, huge flat panel television, awesome artwork on the walls, laundry, two balconies, air conditioning in separate rooms, great views of the hinterland and courtyard, just about everything one could imagine. Huge dining table and kitchen with bar counter and stools, fully equipped with modern appliances. Everything in the apartment was fully functional and very clean. I had no problems whatsoever during my 5 night stay.
It appeared that each unit had a separate wireless internet router vs. one internet hotspot for the whole property - definitely a plus for connectivity, and I must mention that the wireless internet rates at Gemini Court were the lowest I encountered anywhere on the Gold Coast during my two week holiday. This was much appreciated, as I had to stay in constant contact with co-workers and family during my trip. I believe there was also an internet kiosk/business center on the property for those that don't have laptops.
Being a surfer, I was also very impressed to learn that Gemini Court is home to a forecasting wave camera that's tied in with a major surf forecasting company in Australia. Not to mention there's a world-class point break right at the front door! It was great being close to the beach, Burleigh Heads National Park, and the many shops and restaurants in the area. Staying on the hinterland side of the property was great - lots of views of brush turkeys, kookaburras and other wildlife.
The heated swimming pool, spa, sauna and barbecue area were very well laid out and gave great views of Burleigh Beach. Landscaping and upkeep throughout the property seemed great.
I'd recommend this property to anyone visiting the Gold Coast. Great waves,
friendly people, and an all-around fun area. Thanks again to the staff of Gemini
Court for providing an excellent holiday; I'll be sure to return soon!
