“Great location with a car rental for access to all the places in the GC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Superb staff very helpful - quite close to all attractions on the GC. The Theme Parks, shopping and restaurants. Nice hot spa pool and clean and tidy. Represents good value for money and a lovely promenade to stroll. Staff even drove my wife and son to places when I had to travel away for a day to Glasshouse Mountains - excellent service.
Room pleasant - supermarket just behind back of complex about a km away. Close to all shopping centres but a rental car is required. (7 km's from City Centre). LINK trams were being trialled - not yet in service. Will definitely make the GC very efficient with transport. Great Seafood at Charis Seafood on promenade close, and very friendly. "Aqua duck" worth a family trip!!!
Would stay again. Superb family holiday!!!

Room Tip: Confident all rooms are tidy clean and presentable. We were on 2nd floor at back!!

Having visited this area before booked 5 nights in this resort.The location on Marine Parade is perfect for walking along the waters edge.We stayed in a ground floor apartment over looking the Broadwater,comfortable for 2 adults.The reception was very helpful and informing.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the Broadwater

Had a great stay at the Windsurfer. Very clean, management very helpful and friendly. Units well appointed, and great location. Nice and quiet and right on the Broad water. Would return. Value. Reasonable stroll to good value eateries.

In a very good location,close to a supermarket & restaurants.The walk along the waterfront is a lovely way to start the day & a nice stroll home after dinner.As the bedrooms are upstairs we found the upstairs very hot,& as the air cons are in the rooms found them noisy.It did take me 2hrs to get a load of washing done as I had never used a front loader before & there was no instruction book,but that is only a minor whinge.Good value & very clean.

Room Tip: 2nd floor on the east side

Stayed for a few days over the holidays. Great location, friendly staff and very clean and presentable complex. And very cheap compared to some we have stayed at. Best of all we liked the number of restaurants within walking distance - nothing better than a nice dinner with a few drinks then a lovely stroll home along the broadwater! Will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have the best views

After reading many reviews on google and there petty whining we decided that for the price and the location that we would give windsurfer a go.

As expected the reviews turned out to be wrong the locations is great the restaurants and shops are not too far away. We booked only a couple of weeks out from our stay and were delighted with broad water view. The service is as you expect you pay for what you get. The basic creature comforts are provided and you take care of the rest. It's like renting a house you tidy up you supply toilet paper and basics after your provided supplies run out. The only drawback is that the bedroom only has a fan but this is bearable. The apartment was a one bedroom and was spacious and modern with a fridge washing machine and dryer. Secure car parking was provided and getting to the theme parks surfers and even Brisbane is a dream the location is just off the gold coast highway.

The staff were helpful and witty and have a sense of humour though it's a Queenslander’s style of humour but nothing wrong with that

I would highly recommend this as cheap and convenient place to be based from.

Thanks windsurfer for a great stay

I stayed here as a single mum with my 2 yr old, for a week. We got the top floor broadwater apartment which was amazing, and at a fantastic price. It had THREE separate balconies, two small and one very big. Apartment was double story. All had amazing views of the broadwater. Modern furnishing, wash machine and dryer very handy but no dishwasher. (room 40)
Full foxtel channels kept the toddler entertained.
Management were very friendly and helpful advising of where we could visit.
The pool was clean and quiet, and the beach which is right across the road is definitely swimmable. (At high tide). Bus stop is 10 minutes down the road and shops about 7 minutes walk.
Some road and boat noise but tolerable. Minimal neighbor noise. No sign of schoolies unless you venture South!
Would definitely stay there again.
