hi there, i have a house on the Panorama which is beautiful and over looks the coast, i also have a unit on the esplanade at Burleigh heads, i'm torn between both, both places are amazing. burleigh waters will be great once the tram is in, Broadbeach waters again is a great spot. i prefer Burleigh because its a little less tourist driven and a beautiful town to go to. sorry cant be more help, but its all great and every year i have to go back to the UK on business, and i just cant wait to get back.
if you want to buy and move in two years, look at Palm Beach, the tram will be there by then and i believe it will be the next hot place in say two years, but keep burleigh end, just in case the airport gets busier. thats where i'm looking.
