“Gorgeous view, fantastic price. Will definitely stay again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2009

We loved this apartment. It was right on the beach. No road or anything and so open and breezey. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely apartment for low cost.

The reception staff were lovely. We booked a one bedroom but there wasn't one available so they gave us a two bedroom. The receptionist said that she wouldnt lock the extra bedroom or bathroom but if it was obvious we'd used either, we'd have to pay. She was very nice about this and it made us very happy! Being two females, the extra mirror space went down very well!

I have no negatives. The apartments are a little older style but they're well kept, very clean and the decor is modern enough.

We were staying at the Gold Coast for a music festival and the location was pretty difficult for this situation. The public transport was fine though.

I will definitely go back!

After extensive internet research we chose Foreshore Apartments for our Gold Coast holiday in May 2009. We wanted a place that was literally on the beach, no road or park in front, and this was definitely the right choice!
We stayed in Apartment 6 and were really happy with the accommodation. The 2 room apartment had everything we needed and was in a perfect central location. The apartment block is about 500m up the beach from Nobby Beach Surf Life Saving Club and if you're taking the bus - the nearest stop is the Nobby Beach Shops. The views were fantastic and the beach out front is beautiful - golden sand, clear blue sea and no crowds.
After checking out Surfers and other popular areas, we were so pleased we had opted for accommodation elsewhere instead of a high rise hotel in the middle of the city far from the tranquility of the beach. We found Mermaid / Nobby Beach to be a great base for seeing the sights - recommend travelling south to Burleigh, Kirra and Rainbow Bay...and meals at the surf clubs are the best.
Thanks to Rosemary and the team at Foreshore Apartments, loved our stay and we'll definitely return!

Very happy during our 11 day stay at Foreshore Apartments.
I booked direct.
Anna (receptionist) was most helpful, describing and recommending the apartment she thought most suited to our family requirements. She was right on the button!
The 2 bdroom, 2 bathroom apartment we stayed in was modern and tastefully furnished. Fox tv and the two plasma tv's (masterbedroom & lounge) were a great hit with the children! Dishwashing machine, washer, dryer, secure undercover parking were also features.
Foreshore is situated right on the beach...it was ideal to wake up to the sound of the sea each morning and to look out from my bedroom/lounge window to see the expansive ocean!
There is a small pool/spa & tennis court street side. Not hugely significant to us as the lure of the sea was far too strong! The children did comment that the pool was very cold (possibly more refreshing during the height of summer!)
During our stay; Anna, Paul (manager) & Norma (receptionist) were most helpful. There's also a very good brochure library by the lift in the garage level.
My friends were horrified that I had (unwittingly) booked during "schoolies" however we were a good 25 minutes walk (along the beach) from broadbeach and further away from surfers. Schoolies really didnt feature on our family holiday unless we entered their territory in the city centre! - facinating.
We hired a car for the duration of our holiday - a good decision because public transport is generally considered less than reliable. With the car, Surfers was only 10 minutes away. Really happy with our accommodation. Thank you Foreshore Apartments

  • Liked — So close to the ocean, low rise building, very helpful staff, security conscious, nice enviroment
  • Disliked — The pool is small and not sure if it was heated. Perhaps more refreshing when it's hotter.
