Our first time to Rainbow Place for a long weekend with friends. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. A fantastic location. Many thanks to Vicky and Mark for their hospitality and for allowing us into our apartment on our arrival. Looking forward to a return visit.

Just spent our second visit to this friendly little gem of a place. On both occasions we have taken visitors from the UK: and both times they were suitably gobsmacked! 3 nights in a very comfortable apartment with the best views of the Gold Coast anyone could wish for. Thank you very much - we'll be back!!

This holiday rental is located right on Rainbow Beach on the southern end of the Gold Coast, My family's unit was on the second level where the room and balcony looked over Rainbow Beach and Snapper Rocks. The rooms are spacious and "beach friendly".

The room suited our family well with cooking facilities, plenty of room, etc. The whole complex appears well maintained and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The one gripe we will have is the 9 am checkout. It was all very rushed especially when you are used to, and expect a 10am checkout.
