Short Stay Accommodation (respite)

Our Getaway Gold Coast

Our short stay accommodation is a great way to take a break, try new activities and enjoy time with friends. The service also provides valuable support for parents and carers by letting them take a break.

And what a great location! On the Gold Coast close to theme parks, beaches, shopping, restaurants and so many other activities.

Is it available under NDIS?

Yes! For those with NDIS packages, what used to be called Centre Based Respite is now covered by Short Term Accommodation.

You must have this item included in your plan and this will cover your accommodation and care while at the centre. If you want to add extra outings and activities, you can access our Lifestyle and Leisure activities on the coast at an additional cost.

Can I come if I don’t have any government funding? Yes of course! To keep prices fair and consistent we will quote you the same prices contained in the NDIS price guide.

Why not have a look around?

Our staff aim to make short stay accommodation as close to a home away from home as we can make it.

We ensure each person’s individual needs including their diet, health and care needs are met throughout their stay. We also offer group activities and outings, which can range from seeing a movie, shopping trips, eating out and enjoying all the Gold Coast has to offer.

Staff are fully trained in first aid, CPR, child safety, manual handling, assisted medication, enteral feeding, catheter care and food safety. We do not provide specialised medical care or wound care, however, we can work with you to secure an external agency whilst at our Centre.

Most people stay a week at a time but shorter and longer stays are available. Look out for our special packages for Gold Coast events e.g. Gold Coast 600, Theme Park days and more.
