Good location across road from beach, 10min walk to broadbeach mall (15min with kids). We were on the 7th floor and the 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious for a family of 5. Pool and spa were great. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment

Our second visit to San Mateo proved to be just as enjoyable as the first. Our first visit was as a family of teenagers, this second one as a couple. Janette and Jim are most obliging and friendly, very informative on what is on and where, and have a grasp of individual needs of their occupants. Jim is handy with... More

I chose this apartment based on the reviews I had read. I booked a fully self contained luxury penthouse which was far from the truth. The location and views were excellent and very easy to walk to broadbeach restuarant and shopping. We stayed there as a family of 4 with 2 children and I was having my invalid cousin come... More

Walking distance to EVERYTHING yet a quiet location. I found this place thru Lastminute.com at the very last minute. When everything else on Wotif was ridiculously expensive over the long weekend, I found this little gem of a place. The manager even upgraded our room to an 'ocean view' on a higher floor, at no extra cost. It has a... More

This was our second stay over a six mth period and we felt like 'coming home' when we arrived. We stayed on level 3 for 8 days and this unit was recently refurbished and that was nice. The air conditioning, dryer and washing machine worked well and it had a few little extras like plastic plates, cups which were perfect... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on level 2, great location and close to some shops and a nice cafe called Lola's great breakfast for $5 BWS and a convenience store close by, only minutes from the beach. The apartment we were in was in need of a facelift, looks like new carpet but most of the other things... More

San Mateo was booked by our daughter who lives just along the beach. What a find it was. The position was perfect just one block from the ocean. Jan and Jim made us very welcome. We had one apartment for the first week which was excellent. After a weekend trip to Brisbane we were given a different apartment. This one... More

We stay here most years over Christmas. Jan and Jim are fantastic hosts and nothing has ever been too much trouble. Rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed although a tad dated (not a criticism, just a thought!). We will stay here again!

What can I say, I was most impressed with San Mateo exactly what I was hoping for. We felt so at home and Jan and Jim (the managers) were most welcoming and friendly. We initially stayed 9 nights on our way north to visit family and were so happy with what we had experienced we booked for a further 2... More

We love the San Mateo and return time after time to the property. Jim and Jan are particularly welcoming and as gay travellers find their warm welcome especially wonderful. We have our favourite apartment and being a low-rise apartment complex there isn't the same insane madness that seems to be present in other properties - nice to enjoy the pool... More
