Rumrunner Resort Mermaid Waters

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

This north facing family home captures some of the widest water the Gold Coast has to offer. Its position captures warm winter sunshine and abundant natural light. In summer it captures the gentle breezes off the lake. This, combined with abundant insulation makes it a comfortable dwelling without the need for heating or cooling.

The property is located a short 5 minute drive to Mermaid Beach and the dining precinct of Broadbeach. It is approximately 20 minutes from theme parks and the Coolangatta airport.

The quality of finishes is first class and includes a large fully glass tiled master ensuite complete with steam room and Japanese style onsen. Play wonderful soothing tunes through sonos surround system whilst enjoying a steam and a wash and you will feel like you are in a first class day spa.

There are two large outdoor lanais for relaxing and entertaining. The renovation was designed around a commercial grade teppanyaki plate. Here you can practise your teppanyaki skills whilst cooking fried rice and seafood for your family. The outdoor kitchen is complete with a three door bar fridge.

Step out of your kitchen / dining area into a fresh water fully tiled swimming pool. The water is clear and smooth due to the copper ionization filtration process. You will not have that smell of chlorine or that salty taste of a salt water pool. You can actually have a swim, towel down and no need for a shower.

18 metres of frameless glass panels are fully openable and stack out of the way so that you can bring the outdoors in. You will feel, from the moment you enter the house through the large glass pivot door that you are on a boat.

Sonos sound system throughout the house has four different zones so you can enjoy the same music though out the house or play different tunes in different zones. You can also watch different channels of audio throughout the house on the many different tv areas. There is a media centre which will allow you to choose from hundreds of different movies, tv series and kids programs which can be played in different areas of the house. It is all high tech but a clear instruction manual will be on hand and the owner will also do a thorough hand over to run through the house operations.

There is a large shaded area under the deck to sit and relax by the water as you fish and watch the kids / adults paddle the house kayak and stand up paddle board.

The house would be suitable for two families to a maximum of 10 people.

Dream house

  • 5 of 5

I had high expectations when I booked Rumrunner Resort and I was not disappointed. What an amazing house.

Our extended family stayed at the house and it was lovely, clean and spacious. The outdoor areas are exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting around the teppanyaki table and in the outdoor lounge.

The Sonos speaker system throughout the house was fantastic and we wished we'd stayed longer!

Excellent place for big families!

  • 5 of 5

We've a group of some ages above 70, some below 10. A perfect place for a big family! All of us had e best memories made staying in this beautiful place! It was like staying in a dream home for a week! Thank you Simon, Tanya & Akira for everything! Every area in the resort are safe, especially the pool, it is surrounded with glass panels and a not-so-easy-latch to open it, which eased our worries that the 1 & both 3 years old would jump in when we are busy. The guys had a whale of a time fishing every night, and caught 3-4 fishes daily, which added on to our self cooked breakfast, lunch n dinner in the resort! The kitchen is very well furnished with everything one needs to cook or bake! Traveling to anywhere is convenient too, not too far away with our rented car. We will definitely come back here to stay again!

Access to the property was simple and effective and the owners ensured our stay was everything we had hoped for. Great property for families with lots of separate spaces for everyone. 5 Stars!

Outstanding amazing relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Simon your place is so luxurious. We had a really special time here for our sons graduation. Your home was a perfect place for our family to all stay together instead of individual hotel rooms. We could spend our time socialising around your tepinyaki style outdoor kitchen. Great views, comfort, amazing decor and the steam room with all the hidden treasures, this main bedroom didn't just have an ensuite it had its own private everything. We would recommend rum runner resort to anyone. The height of luxury and comfort. Our family are already talking of going back. Well look forward to it.
