The Wave apartments are probably the most centrally located apartments in Broadbeach, everyone knows the iconic wavy building. Upon our arrival we were allowed to check in early which we were grateful. Only issue with checking in is the difficulty in finding a parking spot on the street outside reception. Our initial room wasnt up to the standard we expected... More
