Think Gold Coast and think high rise holiday apartments, but if you want something different, why not try a luxurious floating hotel room.
Owner of Boathouse B&B Afloat, John Forsythe, decided to get himself a craft and kit it out with every mod con you'd expect to find in a grand hotel.
Your accommodation is moored at ritzy Sanctuary Cove on the northern part of the Gold Coast and can take you anywhere you want to go.
Its lounge area has a Balinese day bed and plasma television. There is a modern kitchen stocked with delicious breakfast provisions, four bedrooms/cabins, and best of all, a captain.
Don't despair once you have had a look at the local sights and roamed the waterways, he takes you to your anchorage, briefs you on boat details and leaves in a chase boat so you may enjoy complete privacy.
So, the alternative B&B accommodation gives you so many advantages breathe in the fresh air rather that just look through glass windows, swim any time you want, explore beaches in the Zodiac and never worry about getting to and from wherever you want to go.
