We loved our 2 Br apt which was very nicely appointed and furnished, the bedrooms looked out onto the beach and ocean with a huge balcony. Each bedroom had a very... More

So close to everything you need so very handy if you don't have a car. However be prepared for noise......very loud noise at night. So loud with... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment on the 23rd floor. It was lovely and tidy. Very spacious and modern. Beautiful views as well (we did pay extra for ocean views) Was a bit expensive. Only negative is the rooms do not get serviced at all so if you are staying for more than 2 days you will need to... More

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
