I really hesitated about writing this review. We wanted to have this apartment as our little Gold Coast secret - but I can see that other contributors have beaten us to it. This apartment is really is superb. No expense has been spared. The owners have gone above and beyond to ensure that this apartment is a stylish oasis in... More

We booked this wonderful accommodation for a girls weekend on the Gold Coast and were not disappointed. It was a stones throw from all the fantastic shopping, restaurants and bars and not to forget "right on the beach" .. we loved it. We watched the sunrises and the sunsets with an unobstructed view of the ocean! Fantastic!

We stayed at Golden Sands over the Gold Coast Marathon weekend and loved it. What makes this place so good were the Managers. From initial enquiry, check-in to check-out they could not have been more friendly and helpful. Goes a long way when you receive this level of genuine friendliness on arrival. We were 2 families with 2 separate units... More

Stayed here with family many times and particularly by ourselves for the Gold Coast Marathon events. The new Managers have a similar manner to the previous in that they are very helpful, friendly, caring and make you feel very welcome. Superb views and good location. Close to the patrolled beach and the SLSC coffee shop/restaurant/bar and only a 5 minute... More

Stayed at Golden Sands this month. Great location on the beach front. Beautiful views. Both apartments we stayed in where modern, nice decor. Carpets could do with a steam clean after every guest! Found other peoples hair on the carpets. The only complaint is having a room next to elevator & a person who smoked you could smell it everytime... More

We recently stayed at Golden Sands again, having been there last year and loved it. The location is superb, right on the beachfront at Main Beach so no road in front, the '02' rooms ie 1302 etc have views straight up the beach towards the spit, and over the beach directly in front, it is just heaven to watch, especially...

Have stayed here previously and would stay again. Mixture of permanent residents and holiday units. Building is very quiet and absolute beach frontage. Changed onsite managers whilst we were there and the new managers were just as polite/ friendly as the previous ones. Onsite undercover secure parking as well as a open air carpark onsite. Large living room. Spacious wardrobe... More
