Great apartment with amazing views. All the mod cons, clean and modern. The hosts Mark and Vicky went out of their way to make sure our stay was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend for a relaxing break. Thanks!

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.

This was our third year staying at Rainbow Bay, but our first at Rainbow Place. In the previous years we stayed at a flashier, far more expensive place, in an inferior location. Mark and Vicky were lovely, and so helpful accommodating us when we had a car issue. You simply can't beat the location or views, and the units have... More

Rainbow Place truly came to our aid! Vicky and Mark were exceptional and did everything they could do help us out of a sticky situation.
