Welcome to Bruno's!
A comfortable home away from home with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
Bruno’s is located in a very convenient and central location. It is a short walk from the light rail which gives easy access to the beaches, Surfers Paradise, Southport, Griffith Uni and all the major Gold Coast Hospitals.
Close by you’ll find plenty of shopping, eateries and entertainment with all the major theme parks and Broadwater within short driving distance.
Bruno’s is our much loved holiday home, aptly named after my father who adored the Gold Coast. Due to our busy lives, Bruno’s is not used as much as we would like so rather than leave it vacant, we wish to share it with fellow travelers and holidaymakers like you in the hope that you will come to love Southport and the Gold Coast as much as we do.
Bruno’s is fully equipped with comfy beds, furniture, fresh towels and linen in addition to kitchen appliances and utensils including clothes washing facilities and a dishwasher. Bruno’s is a great place to hang out featuring all the modcons including Wi-Fi, reverse cycle air-conditioning, TV, DVD player and Hi-Fi system. Bruno’s is home to many original artworks by renowned artists which are displayed about the house for your viewing pleasure.
Bruno’s is one of two villas located in a quiet yet central location. You will have the whole villa to yourself. A remote control will be provided which will open the gate to the driveway and the garage door. Bruno’s can accommodate secured parking for up to three vehicles.

Our neighbour Ruben is kindly managing Bruno’s for us in our absence and lives in the neighbouring villa. Ruben is there to help you with anything you might need from local knowledge about the area, how to work any appliances or to simply loan you a cup of sugar.
At Bruno's you’ll find a directory including takeaway menus, details of our favourite local restaurants as well as an assortment of tourist brochures and maps full of suggestions of what to do.
The kitchen pantry is stocked with some consumables. Salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar, cleaning products, a few staples such as rice and pasta a couple of cans of goodies along with ground coffee and a plunger coffee maker, tea, instant coffee, sugar and long life milk.
There is also a supermarket close by if you want to pick up a few extra supplies. In addition, we offer a ‘pantry stocking service’ for our guests where if you advise us at least 24 hours in advance, we can do some shopping for you at our local Aldi and have what your require ready for you in the fridge and pantry on your arrival.
Bruno’s consists of three full bedrooms, kitchen, dining, garage, main living area as well as a very private covered outdoor area with a patio setting and and sofa. We highly recommend having breakfast here to plan out your day as the sun filters through the windows. When we stay at Bruno's we often spend our evenings out here with a drop or two of wine enjoying some smooth jazz playing in the background.
The master bedroom is at one end of the hall with the other two bedrooms at the opposite end, providing privacy between the master and other bedrooms. The main bathroom is a generous size and includes a toilet, shower and bath. Bruno’s also consists of an additional separate toilet/powder room within the house and an extra shower at the rear of the garage which is ideal for a quick wash when you return from the beach all sandy. There is also a washing machine and separate under cover clothes line along with iron and board available for guests.
Servicios y zonas comunes
We request you ring Ruben about 30 minutes before your arrival to ensure he is there to welcome you and have the gate open.
When you arrive please proceed up the driveway and park either near or in the open garage on your right. This will make your life easier.
Ruben is located in the townhouse at the front of the property.
We take security quite seriously so unless we are expecting you the gate is usually closed.
Atención a los huéspedes
As much or as little as you would like. You have the place to yourself with Ruben nearby as you need him. I'm also as close as a phone call if you would like to talk to me.
Otros aspectos destacables
On your first arrival the gate will be open.
Ruben will meet you and supply you with a set of keys or the remote. The remote is programmed to open the gate and the garage door. If you lose it or fail to return it, we have to not only replace the remote, but also have our other fobs reprogrammed. The cost for this is $200. We really don't want to charge you for this, so please remember to return all keys/remotes and try not to lose them.
We provide a ‘pantry stocking service’ for guests and require at least 24 hours notice in order to provide this service. The fee for this service is $10 in addition to your grocery bill. A receipt will be provided and any non-perishable items you do not approve of will be returned and you will not be charged for these provided you inform us of any such items upon inspection on your arrival.
Life is short and while we are here we must make the most of it. It's about people and experiences, places and the memories we make there with the people we meet along the way.
The fabric of life is colored by the company we meet along the way, nourished by great food, lubricated by carefully selected wines, serenaded with fabulous music and made possible by family, friends and a special someone who is always beside you to share life.
My ideal afternoon would be in a warm climate al fresco with some friendly company listening to someone playing smooth jazz while eating prosciutto and aged cheese drinking a fine Shiraz. This could be in the hills near Hobart at Stefano's winery, at Cafe de Monde Jefferson Square in New Orleans or at Bruno's back veranda Southport.
