4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

We booked a 3 bed ocean view apartment, and the ocean view was FANTASTIC! The apartment was very spacious, enough for 4 aduls + 1 teenager and within a few minutes walk to tedder ave. I perfer this area to Surfers- much more quiet etc but depends what you are after. The onsite managers we lovely and very helpfull although the car park was really hard to find (that may just be me) but this is not a resort, they are holiday apartments so you dont have your onsite resturants, kids clubs etc. Just beware of that before you book. This was accommodation for family for a wedding in Main Beach so it suited us just fine. Would stay agin

Stayed here in mid October 2010. Main Beach is great, quiet and out of Surfers hustle and bustle, it is a short drive into Surfers. There were buses right out the hotel to the Theme Parks. Also redder Ave was right down stairs with fantastic restaurants and boutiques. Lovely people everywhere at Main Beach.

We must have got an older style apartment from the photos others have displayed. However the apartment was spacious and importantly clean. the kids loved their own tv in their rooms, and would definately recomend this place to any of my firends, and when we go back we would definately stay here again.

Perfect weather and amazing uninterrupted views of the beach. The unit was decked out in modern homey style furniture and Karl was friendly and easy going. What more could you ask for? Would recommend this to any holiday maker.

We were blown away by the size of the rooms and the location. It was perfect for a 2 night stay for 7 of us.

The apartment was roomy, mostly clean, but a bit tired. Not up to the standard I would expect for the price. A sign in the kitchen states that you will be fined $30 if all dishes are not washed, and all rubbish removed (despite only being issued with one sachet of dishwasher powder for the entire stay... but you can BUY more). The 50c charge for extra toilet paper was insulting. We felt disrespected and unwelcome.

My family (husband, myself and 2 kids - 7 & 4) stayed at Oscar on Main for a week and loved it. The 2 bed unit was larger than our house, it had lovely furniture, TVs, DVD etc and it was very clean. The restaurants and supermarket are only a few metres away in one direction, and the beach and park in the other. It's a short 15 min drive to the theme parks. When it was raining, the kids had a ball in the heated indoor pool. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely stay there again!
