It was our 5th trip in 4 years and we'll be back again next January. Being on the beach side of the road, the views are amazing from the apartment, pool and BBQ area and there's no need to cross a road to get to the beach...you're on the beach. For that reason it's safer for children too. We love waking up in the morning and watching the surfers and walkers from the lower levels. You feel like the beach is part of your backyard and the rooms are far enough away from the water's edge to remain private. There's a clear glass fence around the pool which gives direct views to the sea. The Northcliff surf club is less than 5 minutes walk and that's ideal for breakfast. We found that we were far enough away from the main drag of Surfers Paradise not to be troubled by the night crowd but close enough for an easy walk to either Surfers or Broadbeach shops and restaurants. Nothing is too much trouble for Pat and Rob on the front desk - especially considering we were staying in an apartment and not a hotel room. They remembered us from previous stays and made us feel like we had an extra connection with the place. They went out of their way to be friendly with our children too. The place is very clean and overall from my family of five's perspective - absolutely ideal for a relaxing break. We walked to Main Beach, Marina Mirage and the Broadwater. Sea World is close by but you're best to take a bus or taxi. It's close to everything and is not so large that you feel overrun by people at the pool or in the lifts. For us, it's ideal.
