Jude and I have been staying at Surfers for more than thirty years at many different apartments. Emerald Sands has always intrigued me. This year we decided to give it a go.

Our family stayed in a two floor, two bedroom suite for 10 days. Lots of space for a very comfortable stay and can't beat the ocean views. A 'sunrise' coffee on the balcony every morning was awesome. 50 metres to the beach and a short walk to Surfer's or Broadbeach. Management was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Smaller apartment building which gave us a very quiet and pleasant stay away from the hustle and bustle, located right on the beach with fabulous views and easy walking distance to either Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach. Room was very clean, modern and spacious with all amenities.

We had stayed at Emerald Sands previously and were pleasantly surprised. This time, we had the opportunity for a quick overnight stay not far from Brisbane so of course we thought of Emerald Sands.
