Private access to the beach was great and the location is close enough for us to walk most places, which made our stay very stress free. Michael and Karen are extremely helpful and provide... More

We stayed here on a busy weekend and we were delighted from the start. The owner came out and showed us how to use the car park and even waited while we parked to help us with our luggage. The view from the lounge is just breathtaking - I don't think you could ever get sick of that view! The... More

We stayed here for the G20 weekend in Unit 9. This weekend we were an extended family of 7 with two teens and two pre-teens. Before we booked on line, we rang and spoke to Michael about which unit would suit us best. All units are decorated differently, and the photos on the website not all up to date (for... More

My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights while completing medical treatment. It offers the most stunning absolute beachfront views second to none. Management are just lovely and caring people. Our apartment (all 3 bedrooms) was lovely, somewhat dated furniture but still tasteful, comfortable and clean. Perfectly situated halfway between Surfers and broadbeach so everything is at your fingertips... More

Our family of 6 stayed for 2 weeks in Jan 2014 and loved it! There were a few things that could be improved but all in all, it was fabulous. We rented a 3 bedroom apartment which had stunning views over the beach and was within easy walking distance to The Esplanade shopping mall (15 min with a pram), the... More

When the door opens to apartment 5 the first thing you notice is the light, and then the space. It is bright and open and absolutely beautiful. My family (2 adults 3 teens) stayed here for 7 nights and did not want to leave - we could live here. It is just so easy and so relaxing. Although only on... More
