What a glorious location! Walk straight on to the beach. Flags are just out the front so very convenient for families. Nice pool that is shaded in the afternoon when you've had enough sun. Very clean barbecue with utensils supplied. Our apartment was well furnished and the view was perfect. Fantastic family holiday. Cafes and surf club very very close.... More

'It looks like it was built in Greece,' my husband says as we arrive. It's not a compliment, but then, many apartments on the Gold Coast look the same, so it's not out of place. Front desk staff were very friendly, and we even had the cleaner call out from third level, saying we could check in at 12pm instead... More

Blackout curtains would be great especially as the sun rises so early! Apartment had everything we needed for our 4 night stay, except tissues! Awesome location - walking distance to shops, cafes and Nobby's Beach Surf Club.

It was a shame I only had one night there. And all too brief it was. Unfortunately the really comfortable cosy bed and those cloud-like pillows plus the beautiful sound of the surf put me to sleep to soon. The views are supurb, and the managers parents who were helping out were really nice. I loved it.

Thank you to the Spindrift on the Beach for the most amazing family holiday. The location is just perfect, with the beach on the doorstop and some great restaurants and shops just 5 minutes walk away. The apartment was clean, modern and well-furnished, and the view from our ocean front apartment was spectacular. The extra touches the Spindrift provided such... More

Hi Stephen, Thank you, the cleanliness issue is taken seriously and I will follow through with housekeeping. The sun certainly likes to rise early in the morning and only our center Oceanfront apartments have the bedrooms directly facing east over the ocean which I can honestly say 99.9% of both couples and families absolutely love, light sleepers or not and...

We recently had a 5-night stay at Spindrift. It was a very enjoyable stay, right on the beach with no roads or paths to cross. Management were very professional and helpful and obviously kept the property clean and presentable. The rooms are a little dated though nicely furnished and fitted out. A great location with parks, good cafes and shops... More

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We had apartment 19 on the 4th floor, a beach view apartment, which gives you a view of the ocean and the land looking towards Surfers Paradise. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Although there was a new aircon installed, we did not have it... More

Apartment was clean, location good. Incredibly noisy from the surf and wind as the windows do not close properly at all. If you don't like noise don't stay here. The accom was not couple friendly either which is a shame. We had to sleep in a bunk bed setup, given lots of couples travel tgthr, time to rethink. I wouldn't... More
