Stayed at Bay Lodge for a week in June. Loved the location being easy walking distance to Surfers and the bus stop was at the corner for the theme parks. Very quiet complex away from the traffic and tram noise. The free Wi-Fi was a definite plus and this was provided for all the family. The kids loved the pool... More

When I review places I try to keep in mind the star rating and the cost. We needed somewhere at the last minute and this place seemed like extraordinary value for money so we booked it, hoping for the best. We were not disappointed; the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived off a 24 hour flight at 10am... More

We were a group of 4 travellers so we opted for the 2-bedroom apartment. Apartment was adequately spacious. Kitchen was slightly small but everything was working fine and thats the important aspect as we planned to do some cooking ourselves. Comes with a small balcony and wifi access. Master bedroom has a mini walk-in wardrobe and quite spacious. The other... More

My initial thoughts were that place would only be ok. Smaller than most of the new high rise buildings it does feel more homely. A small complex with a mix of holiday makers and permanent rentals. The idea that the place was party free caught my eye when booking. Knowing that our first night was over New Years, I expected... More

We arrived here for a four night stay. The owners we're really helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We were given codes for the free wifi. The rooms were clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The car park was also very secure. Close enough to walk into surfers too which is a bonus.

My Mum and I took my 2 children to stay in winter and found the apartments to be just fine. The location is great, so quiet - it's hard to believe Surfers is just up the road. The waterfront on Budds Beach was a favourite with my children. There is an excellent playground and a café called Bumbles which has... More

Stayed here while first time coming to Gold Coast, the Apartments was really easy to reach, walking distance to Surfers paradise, near the Bust Stop. While we arriving at 7.00 PM we didn't know that reception is not available for 24-hrs. As we cannot use our cellphone to call the staff/owner as instructed on the front door, fortunately we met...

The apartment is in strategic location, only 10 minutes walk to beaches and 10 minutes walk to the restaurants and convenient stalls.

We had a two bedroom two bathroom apartment. Glad to have a washing machine and dryer situated in the apartment. We had a great kitchen, which had a proper fridge. The pool was heated.
