Our family of 2A2c Stayed in their 2 bedrooms apartment on the third level for 8 nights. Fell in love with the place as soon as we stepped in. Located just next to the beach with ocean view and just minutes away from Cavill Avenue. The apartment is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Self-contained with kitchen, washing machine and dryer.... More

Recommended by a friend. Up in Gold Coast on business for 6 days and very happy we stayed here. Very spacious apartments. A bit dated but clean and functional. There are apartments that have been recently renovated which weren't available for our stay. Amazing north facing balconies with unbeatable view. Good location. Right on beach. Away from main Surfers strip... More

Wow, what a location. Superb views and only a 2 minute walk to Cavill Avenue. Not to mention it being right on the beach. We stayed in apartment 14 on the 5th floor which was 2 bed and 2 bathrooms. The room amenities were excellent! Every thing you could need in a self catering apartment at a very reasonable cost.... More

Enjoyed 3 nights ....family of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys.....our apartment was one of the ones that hadnt been renovated, but was still adequate though small things needed attention or replacing. The building is in a great location close to Cavill Ave, right on the beach, yet doesn't suffer from too much road noise. The amenities are really well... More

We have now stayed here 4 times and will always come back! The views are A1 and the pool area walking straight on to the beach is fantastic! Also the location is perfect for exploring the night markets or taking part in all that Surfer's has to offer. But the thing that sticks in our memories always is the way... More
