About the property

Peaceful lake, canoe, private pool n jetty, 5 bedroom, 4 bathrooms, spa bath etc

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.

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

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

1 Out door shower

2 Dining Areas

2 Living Areas

Huge alfresco, undercover, screened outdoor living area where you can have BBQ, enjoy the views without getting bothered by flies and mosquito etc.

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

Open plan kitchen with gas cooktop, espresso coffee machine, dishwasher and microwave.

The main lounge has Sony 55 inch wide screen television, DVD player, PlayStation and really comfy leather lounge and 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.

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. 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 which is the 5th sleeping area.

There are three bathrooms upstairs. Downstairs there is a toilet and a bathroom (shower + toilet), as well as an outdoor shower in the garden area for rinse off after swimming.

The property is child friendly with yard and pool fencing, there is also fencing between the garden and the lake. We also provide high chair, cot/crib, toys, books, DVDs, plastic plates, bowls, cups etc. There's also a great park just around the corner with a kids playground, and walking track.

The private jetty is great for fishing or feed ducks and swans. There is also a three person canoe and life jackets that you can take out and explore the lake. And don't forget to watch out for a variety of doves, eastern rosellas, galahs that frequently come by for some bird seeds.

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 are parking for up to four cars.

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.


We have NO PARTIES / NO FUNCTIONS policy, no big gathering allowed, if you're planning to have visitors, please discuss it with the Property Manager prior to making booking.

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.
