If you’re the kind of person who dreams of a relaxed beach house lifestyle where you can escape distractions and live life in the moment, chances are you’re not easily rushed. As they say, there’s no time like the present. So now’s the time to do what you do best - make the most of the here and now.
Most home hunters already know Mermaid Beach is one of Gold Coast’s most exclusive locales, long cherished for its beautiful beaches, close-knit community, surf clubs and gourmet restaurants. With a median house price of nearly $1.4 million, it hardly surprising it boasts some of Australia’s most amazing beach homes, including a $27 million mansion on Hedges Avenue.
What you might not know is that Mermaid Beach is Gold Coast’s most under-supplied new apartment market. This has set the wheels in motion for an unprecedented recent growth of 33.5 per cent (you read that right). In other words, opportunities to live an affordable life of laid-back luxury are opening up for the first time in a long time.
And as is the case with all hotspot suburbs, the more people want to live there, the more property prices will surely rise. So if you’ve been thinking, waiting, wondering or pondering, there’s no time like the present to make a move.
Mahala Mermaid Beach has timed its entry perfectly with a boutique 25-storey residential building overlooking Hedges Avenue. Named after the Balkan word for ‘neighbourhood’, Mahala features 94 spacious two, three and four-bedroom apartments blending coastal soul with barefoot luxury. With resort-style amenities like a terrace pool, outdoor barbecues and cabana, residents lounge and private dining room, Mahala offers the space to live in the moment while rubbing shoulders with affluence in an authentic Mermaid Beach neighbourhood.
Our pick of the lot is the TYPE2E floor plan, Mahala’s most in-demand residence. And, here are reasons why:
1. More than meets the eye
When Pindan partnered with award-winning Cottee Parker Architects, they envisioned an apartment design that would capture the dreamy beach house feel that has seduced Mermaid Beach locals. With a generous 126sqm of oversized open plan living spaces, a north-east orientation, high ceilings and an abundance of natural light, this apartment takes full advantage of Gold Coast’s enviable sub-tropical climate.
2. A luxurious lifestyle in view
Beach houses should flow seamlessly from the inside out to create a relaxed, breezy beachside charm. With its large balcony boasting uninterrupted panoramic ocean views extending from Broadbeach to Burleigh Heads, this apartment will open your eyes to a soul-restoring way of living.
3. Finished to perfection
Mahala captures the Mermaid Beach allure flawlessly, blending laidback coastal neighbourhood charm with luxe living.

4. Pure functionality
Just like the tight-knit neighbourhood that’s called Mermaid Beach home for years, Mahala is designed for those who adore an active coastal lifestyle. With Mahala’s apartments boasting two car bays and dedicated surfboard and bicycle storage and outdoor shower to was down in, barefoot surfers and active beachgoers will revel in this easy beach lifestyle.
5. Affordable body corporate fees
With apartment living relatively new to Mermaid Beach, “body corporate fees” isn’t exactly a topic that comes up often in gourmet coffee shop conversations - but it is possible to do strata smarter. Mahala keeps energy and strata fee costs down with its rooftop solar-farm system, meaning you can buy with confidence knowing your stunning resort style facilities will be cared for, for less.
