The Gold Coast’s latest offering calling you to the Sunshine State

The Gold Coast’s latest offering calling you to the Sunshine State
Edited by Travel Weekly


    Anchored aside the rolling seas of Bilinga Beach on the southernmost end of the Gold Coast, Rolling Seas Bilinga, is a masterfully-curated home that pays homage to the Gold Coast’s sun-kissed shores and laidback lifestyle.

    Accommodating up to 12 guests across two freestanding villas – The Residence and The Cottage – it is a sophisticated yet playful space that strikes the perfect balance between cosy and luxe, and comfortable and covetable. While the overall effect is one of calm indulgence, there’s a sense of character and personality that shines through within the home’s relaxed scene of modern luxuries, natural materials, and colourful interventions that echo Bilinga’s golden sand and unspoiled ocean.

    The light-filled property provides travellers with a modern take on the quintessential Aussie beach house and positions them within easy access of the region’s many tourist attractions. Glittering coastlines, surf towns that haven’t lost their rhythm, ancient rainforests, and a vibrant culinary scene are all within reach for guests of Rolling Seas.

    Walking distance from Gold Coast Airport, and close to some of the Gold Coast’s most well-known family-friendly attractions, including Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, and the newly-opened Native Estate and Kirra Point, Rolling Seas is the picture of easy antipodean living, offering homely luxury that showcases the best of this Queensland dreamscape.

    Unlike many high-end villas, Rolling Seas was designed to be a warm family home, a place for special memories to be made. It has amenities for guests of all ages to enjoy together – an infinity pool, ping-pong table, expansive media room, generous dining areas, and sunken outdoor conversation pit.

    The property’s namesake is the lapping ocean of Bilinga Beach, which is mere footsteps away and infuses the home with its undulating rhythm and salt-kissed scent. At its heart, Bilinga is still a sleepy seaside town. The main drawcard is its stunning white-sand beach, which is quieter than surrounding beaches and where days are best spent soaking up the sunshine, grabbing a Rolling Seas surfboard and frolicking in the waves right out the front of the estate.

    The neighbouring towns of Coolangatta, Palm Beach and Currumbin are havens for great coffee and cocktails, fantastic dining, and boutique shopping, while the heaving hotspots of Burleigh and Broadbeach are a short drive away, and Byron Bay is one hour away by car.

    Authentic local experiences vary from sunset picnics on the shore to long, lazy lunches at some of the southern Gold Coast’s iconic restaurants, as well as more active experiences such as a rainforest walk at Currumbin Rockpools and learn-to-surf lessons at Currumbin Alley.

    For guests seeking added extras to elevate their Rolling Seas experience, such as in-home, private dining experiences to celebrate a milestone birthday, anniversary or surprise engagement, the Rolling Seas team is on hand to assist. Whether it’s something as simple as a grazing board at sunset on the pool deck, or a gourmet lunch, Rolling Seas partners with local connoisseurs to showcase the region’s finest.

    Every Rolling Seas stay is a bespoke experience, tailored to the specific needs and requests of each group of guests. Bookings are made exclusively via the Rolling Seas website.
