Golden Sands is a collection of privately owned apartments. As such the apartment you get may be fitted out to a different level of quality to what we stayed in. We had a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment on the 14th floor on the south east corner. The fit out was a good basic level, not luxury but certainly acceptable.... More

This is a perfect place to stay on the Coast. We live here but wanted to go to the beach everyday and walk to dinner. We had a three bedroom apartment which was spacious and great views. We had a three month baby and they provided a cot free of charge. Beautiful place and we will be back as we... More

Golden Sands is a well kept secret. The building is right on main beach, no road in front and the apartments facing north have a beautiful view of the ocean and uninterrupted views looking north up main beach, towards the marina and beyond.

This was my idea of paradise, after a very busy time,it was just what we needed. To have the sea and beach directly outside your window was so healing and peaceful, it was bliss. The apartment was lovely as it was so light and airy and the beds were very comfortable. The management here excel themselves and Kylie went above... More

This was booked based on the location, which was definitely the highlight for the family. Absolute beachfront, and good sea views from main lounge and master bedroom. Walking to distance to Tedder Ave, with a great selection of restaurants and cafes. Bus service pretty much to the door every 20 minutes if using public transport into Surfers. We booked the... More

I needed a couple of days break before my wedding so I decided to book into the Golden Sands Holiday Apartments as it looked so wonderful and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I booked for three nights before the wedding and the wedding night and an extra night before we headed off on our... More

The views from our apartment could not have been better and the beds were very comfortable. Our particular apartment was a bit dated, particularly the bathrooms. It could have done with a thorough spring clean and tidy up maintenance (cracked main bedroom door, scuffed skirting boards, old disused air conditioning unit on the wall). The unit would be considerably freshened... More

We've been coming here for the last 3 years and I just could not imagine staying anywhere else on the coast. Management is excellent, the apartments are comfortable and the views are beyond description. Handy to everything and a nice 30 min walk to Surfers. Highly recommended.

Best location in Main Beach, especially if you have small kids. The beach is literally a one minute stroll out the door without having to cross a single road. Graeme was always helpful and chatty whenever we ran into him, which was often, because he was always busy around the building. The only downsides for us was the ensuite bathroom... More
