Had a fantastic time. What a spot! Almost on the beach. Beautiful beach views. Lovely clean unit with kitchen and laundry facilities. Managers are very helpful and a lot of fun and give great service. Close to restaurants. Looking forward to returning in May.

We stayed in apt 6A, a fantastically fitted out corner apt with lots of sun, great views, BIG flat screen TV, a/c, walk across from the beach and... More

We holidayed at Emerald Sands in apartment 6A in March 2015. The apartment was fantastic from every aspect. From the entrance of timber floor boards to the floor to ceiling windows in the lounge room with a HUGE COMFY modular lounge, 50" flat screen TV, extra Foxtel stations, play station, blu-ray DVD and music player. We loved being able to... More

My wife and I recently spent two weeks at the Emerald Sands, and I have to say it was absolutely the best experience of our lives. We spent months researching where we wanted to stay while on the Gold Coast, and the Emerald Sands was the only place that met all of our needs. First, the property is literally right... More

A special thank you to John and Anne, our stay was amazing! We stayed during Mid-January. Everything was just a short walk away. Bus stop was just around the corner with services coming every 10-15minutes. The room was magnificent with spectacular ocean views and it had everything we could have ever wanted! Oven, dishwasher, hair dryer, stove top, dining setting... More

I have stayed here before. The place is very good value and has car parking. The view is great. The managers are very helpful and we will be going back there next May. Recommended. I need 200 characters .... so, the Northcliffe(?) surf club 400 metres down the road heading to the CBD is well worth visiting. It has a... More

Got a good price. Our one bedder could have done with a makeover as the kitchen was looking tired but it was clean, cosy and sunny. Well equipped. Bedroom and bathroom was a bit small and basic but clean. Beach 50m across the road...so convenient especially with a toddler. Management helpful...could keep our car in the car park for a... More
