Domino’s Pizza boss Don Meij has made a cool $2.4m from the sale of his Gold Coast beachfront apartment.
Mr Meij, who is based in Brisbane, bought the whole-floor apartment in the sought-after Sea building at 3531-3533 Main Beach Parade in June 2020 for $5.35m.

He has just sold it to a buyer from Brisbane for $7.8m — shy of the $7.95m Mr Meij was originally asking for.
The apartment, located on the second floor of the seven-storey boutique building, was marketed through Harry Kakavas and Michael Kollosche of Kollosche.
Mr Kakavas said the unit sold unfurnished to a well-known Brisbane family who had previously owned property on Hedges Ave and planned to use their new purchase as a holiday home.
“As soon as they walked in, they said it reminded them of their home in Brisbane,” Mr Kakavas said.
“It’s in a very boutique building of only seven apartments and the buyers found that very attractive.”
Spanning 367 sqm, the three-bedroom, New York-style pad was decked out by Mr Meij’s wife, Jenny, with bold prints and colours paired with romantic vintage touches.
Mr Kakavas said it was barely used by the couple, leaving it in near new condition.
“People loved the way she decorated it,” Mr Kakavas said.
“It was beautifully presented to the market.”
Mr Kakavas said Mr Meij made the decision to sell after having to spend more time overseas for work.
“Don Meij is a very happy man,” he said.
“Don did do some minor work (to the apartment) but building prices have skyrocketed through the roof, which makes replacement value higher.
“There’s still a strong appetite for absolute beachfront product, and let’s be honest, they’re not making any more of it.”
The apartment’s master suite has terrace access, ocean views, his and hers walk-in robes and a marble ensuite with a spa and dual showers.
The open-plan living spaces include a state-of-the-art kitchen with a Vintec wine fridge and walk-in pantry.
A vintage-style smoked mirror feature wall with gas fireplace in the lounge area, opens on to an alfresco beachfront terrace, which offers views of the ocean to the horizon and up and down the coastline.
Sea was designed by the renowned Gold Coast architect Bayden Goddard and developed by Louis Zenonos at a cost of $13.6m in 2018.
