The views from the apartment were absolutely gorgeous, from the lounge & balcony you looked right up the beach. The bedroom views were just as gorgeous with the 2nd bedroom looking towards Coolangatta. The location is absolute... More

I looked online at numerous accommodation options in Surfers Paradise and settled on One the Esplanade because I wanted to be right on the beach, up high with stunning views, in a modern apartment with a swimming pool.
