106/3554 Main Beach Parade, Main Beach is set to go under the hammer.
IT’S got spectacular views and has been a haven for family memories.
Welcome to Jane and Paul Hopkins’ “house in the sky”.
The couple, who are based in Brisbane, bought the four-bedroom apartment on level 26 of Main Beach’s Spinnaker building in 2014.
There is plenty of space inside the apartment.

“We were living in Brisbane at the time and were looking for a holiday home,” Mrs Hopkins said.
“When you walk through the front door, the panorama of the ocean is what really hits you.”
With three sons, the couple would spend as much time as they could on the Gold Coast.
“We would be there at every chance we could,” she said.
“We raised the kids through their teenage years and would often spend time down there — plenty of time at Christmas and Easter and during school holidays.”
There is a huge balcony.
The 297 sqm apartment combines relaxed living with contemporary beachside sophistication with a practical, spacious floor plan.
There are four bedrooms, two ensuites, two additional bathrooms and an office with expansive open-plan living and dining areas.
Huge sliding glass doors open and expand the living spaces and bedrooms onto a sheltered wraparound balcony that runs 37m, and sets the stage for idyllic entertaining.
With plenty of space for the entire family.
“The layout is what puts this apartment in a unique category and people wouldn’t realise that until they move in,” she said.
“It’s like a house in the sky.
“We’ve had huge parties and there’s plenty of space for everyone.
“We also had teenage boys and their mates over and no one ever felt like they didn’t have enough room as there are two separate wings.
“You have all those options of being able to retreat or we could go to sleep while the kids might be doing their thing.”
As well as spectacular views of the ocean.
But it’s not just the apartment that the family is leaving — the other residents in the building became like a second family.
“It’s a special part of the Coast,” she said.
“It’s a little enclave all on its own with a lovely feel.
“It’s been a really special time in our lives for almost a decade and it’s served us well.”
Robbie Graham of Ray White Prestige Gold Coast is taking the property to auction on September 28.
