My son, wife and I recently stayed for 8 nights at Spindrift on the Beach. If you are the kind of person who is pedantic about spotlessness (all fresh paint etc… .) then this may not be the place for you. However, if you are the kind of person that wants to be right on the beach in a swimming... More

Recently (May 2016) spent a week at the above apartments. The absolute beach frontage and spectacular ocean views are breathtaking. All amenities provided incl pool, bbq area and beautiful beach. Although the apartment was a little "tired", the staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of room with two bathrooms, lots of storage, two tvs and your own laundry. Would unhesitatingly... More

Hi Jo, Jo is correct "I have seen worse" even though I did not say this. I did have to look really hard to find the dust Jo is talking about, including the tiniest remnant of an old spiderweb on the balcony. Rather than accepting my immediate remedy to have one of our housekeeping staff come up and rectify all... More

Firstly, if you're staying for more than three days take your own towels - you will be given one to use and will have to pay $7 for another - yes that's right, $7 for a towel.

Spindrift is perfectly located in the quieter area of Miami/Nobby. As soon as we walked into the apartment, I was so happy I had chosen it, as we were greeted by the most amazing ocean view. The rooms were light & bright, which are important to me when choosing accommodation. Secure parking is available. Walk to Nobby's Surf Club for... More

We spent a week in a beach front apartment over the New Year period. Arriving at the apartments from Coolangatta airport took about 25 mins and they looked very modern and clean from the entrance we had room 13, with easy access via a lift.

A great location away from the GC commercial/tourist areas yet close to amenities that help support the stay without too much trouble. The property is well equipped, ideal for families with pool and beach close at hand.

This is a lovely complex right on the beach. I stayed in a 2 bedroom beachside unit, which was to the side of the building with a view to the beach from the living room.
