Stayed here from 7 - 12 March 2014 on the 6th floor. About 30 minutes slow drive from the airport. Location is superb, fronting the beach. Can hear the waves from the sofa. The one bedroom apartment was very spacious enough and so so comfortable. Full fledged apartments, large big tv, fridge, cooking utensils, washing machine, dryer, broom..everything. perfect for...

Had a lovely time at Emerald Sands which is right on the beach with fantastic views of the beach from every window. It was conveniently located in easy walking distance of Cavill Av, Q1, Broadbeach and other dinner and shopping hotspots. We stayed in a 2 storey family unit right at the top in the middle and could see whales... More

From the moment we walked up to this property we knew we were in for a treat. It is a stone throw away from the beach and a very cute boutique apartment. The location is absolutely brilliant if you want quiet, beautiful beach/surf views and central Gold Coast. It was just a short walk from the bus stop to the... More

Stayed at this location not by choice. The location is ok close to bus stops to either Surfers or further south to Broadbeach and beyond. The room was average. The floor to ceiling windows were filthy on the inside and had obviously not been cleaned for some time. We stayed in a Two bedroom unit. The space was adequate but... More

We stayed here for 7 days on the the 7th floor in May. Good view of the beach, pretty much at your front door. The rooms were very nice and tidy. Came with a car park which is invaluable in the city. Kitchen was complete with microwave and dishwasher. We had several cooked meals to save a bit of dough.... More

This place was ok, but nothing to go into raptures over, very Basic and does need some work carried out, such as light bulbs, and getting the oven/stove fixed. Our Room was very noisy, from the Elderly couple next door. Great Parking, Close to the Beach, but stayed in far better, and Cheaper. Found the Cleaner pretty Rude, the Relief... More
