We stayed here for a long weekend and couldn't have been happier. From the moment we entered the property and met the very genial and helpful hosts we knew we had chosen wisely. The accommodation was a one bedroom apartment on the fourteenth floor and the views were just stunning. The apartment was clean and well fitted out with modern... More

Stayed here in December 2015 for 7 nights and from the moment you entered the unit you were engulfed with the stunning views and all I can say is WOW awesome. We spent most of our time out on the balcony watching the world pass by, we stayed on the 14th floor which is a must for the view alone.... More

We stayed here in October '15 for 12 nights in a one bedroom apartment on the 13th floor. Stepping into the unit for the first time, we were amazed at the view. The uninterrupted views to the north, along the esplanade, beach and ocean, were nothing short of spectacular. The unit was immaculately clean and well maintained. (actually, the entire... More

You know you've struck gold when your 4yo has forgotten about the iPad & loves hanging out on the balcony just 'enjoying the view.' Oceanside apartments are so immersive that wearing sunglasses indoors becomes a thing. Chris & Judy take great pride in keeping the property immaculate. Deservedly #1 on TA

We took the kids to see the theme parks at the Gold Coast & stayed at One the Esplanade. It was perfect. Clean, comfortable, had everything we needed & the hosts were incredible. Tons of room for the kids, a beautiful balcony with a spectacular view to have a glass of wine on when the kids went to bed. It... More

I just checked out today after a week long stay. The location couldn't be any better- right smack on Surfers Paradise, and located by the beach. Food and transport were all within walking distance, 5mins max. Apartment was large, clean and very pleasant! All apartments feature a sea view - I Spent many minutes staring at the beach and ocean... More

This review is quite late. However, still at the top of our holiday destinations to keep it within me 😊 - Apartment was literally beachfront- a few steps away from the beach, you don't even need to cross the road. A big plus is it's a five-minute walk from Cavill Mall, the centre of Surfers Paradise. - Unit was very... More
