Rainbow Place gets it right on every level. For a start the location is unbelievable and makes you appreciate what a great country Australia is. The building is shaped in such a way that it takes advantage of the breathtaking views from every apartment. The winter sun splashes through every window at some point in the day. The building is...

Very good value; managers are first rate; the location is QUIET - a big plus for us which is why we did not want to stay at Coolangatta Beach or Surfers Paradise where noise from road, pubs and eateries can disturb sleep at night. Ten minutes walk to supermarkets, Target, op shops (my wife loves them!) and across road to... More

Hi Guys. thank you for taking time to post such a positive review of your recent stay at Rainbow Place Apartments. The issue with surfers intermingling with the swimmers is currently being addressed by council. As the ocean currents start to slow during the autumn/winter months Rainbow Bay undergoes a beach transformation with a buildup of sand. Even with this... More

Our special haven is Rainbow Bay with Rainbow Place being our favourite beachfront apartments. Why ? Whilst on the balcony on the lower floors it almost feels like you are on the beach... without the heat and sunburn. Also with the kitchen at the front you can peel, chop and cook whilst gazing at the stunning view. The units feel... More
