My husband and 10 year old daughter stayed three nights at Oscar On Main. The late check in was an easy process and we arrived to find a lovely, spacious and comfortable apartment which suited all of our needs. The indoor swimming pool and spa were perfect for a quick dip before, between or after our daily activities. Having the... More

We've just spent a week at Oscar, having two apartments between 2 families. It is a great place, well located not far from the beach and the restaurants on Tedder St. Further the Main Beach location is excellent for the Gold Coast, handy for the theme parks, Surfers, and airports. It's a bit quieter at Main Beach which is nice,... More

Had the best short weekend away with my partner. I stayed on level 11 room 42 and it was beautiful, the view was beautiful, the room was amazing and overall everything was perfect :) the only thing I would say is that the pools are looking a little run down but it was still good! Overall would definitely stay here... More

We stayed here the first time we stayed at Main Beach after it was recommended by a friend as I am not a fan or Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach. Since we haven't been able to get a booking as so popular and a great place.

So glad we were able to give you a great apartment so you could finally enjoy all on offer at Main Beach. Don't forget to book ahead as we do get full as we have a lot of repeat guests coming back, as well people just discovering our great location and beaches. More

Great apartment only marred by them charging you a couple of bucks for you to put on the dishwasher during & at the end of your stay. Hide the buck a day cost into the daily rate & you might avoid the uncomfortable checkouts & improve your word of mouth marketing.

We do our best to explain clearly to our guests that you are booking a self-catering apartment, not a hotel room. We provide a starter pack of necessities, free of charge, like shampoo, soaps, etc so you are not inconvenienced when you first arrive. At reception, we keep a supply of sachets [for a nominal fee of $1] to help... More

Very nice spacious apartment with all the required amenities. We did however, have to request the bathroom be unlocked. This was a two bedroom apartment with an ensuite and separate bathroom. Apparently, with a "one bedroom let" they only provide the ensuite, which was a bit confined and no bath. Not conducive to a happy life. There was no problem... More

We have two different floor plans for 2 bedroom ocean view apartments. In one, the bath is in the en suite bathroom and the other, the bath is in the main bathroom. If we know that a guest booking a 1 bedroom ocean view apartment requires a bath in the bathroom, we will always give them access to the bathroom... More

Fabulous ocean views from our 18th Floor apartment. Big apartment with a good size balcony. Walking distance to the beach, the Surf club for a great meal and Tedder Avenue with a choice of Restaurants. We will definitely come again.

Looking for accommodation due to a work function and wanting to make a weekend of it. Found Oscar on Main a surprise as most other options were over priced places because of schoolies. We paid for a one bedroom apartment ocean view and were impressed with the quality and size of the apartment. Definitely great value for money, 2 pools,... More

You all looked like you were having such a wonderful time away, full of relaxation and laughter. I was jealous and wanted to join in.

Stayed for 5 nights, good security set up. Lovely apartment, beautiful views. The spa seemed to be a bit odd. As only one side bubbled up and was slightly spasmodic, and only half the jets worked. The second button to get the other side to work was broken. Bring your own washing powder as there's a machine and dryer in... More
