This is my favourite place to stay in Surfers, out of the trashy centre, but an easy walk into the action for my teenagers. This building is RIGHT ON THE SAND!!! If the glorious beach and coastline is what you are in Surfers for, you will be very connected to it here. Open your blinds to feel that compulsion to start your day with a long walk on the sand, there's nothing between you and the rolling waves but an elevator ride!
Aquarious has brilliant facilities even if they seem a bit dated compared to all the generic new apartments that have sprung up everywhere. Thes glamourous new pools at Chevron Renaisanace or Q1 might look appealing in the pictures, but they are not heated, so to me, unuseable outside of high-summer. The Aquarious pools, both outdoor and indoor are heated which is quite rare, so can be enjoyed all year round. The tennis courts, numerous barbecue gazebos, landscaped lawn, squash court and direct beach access are the best facilities on the coast in my opinion. The afternoons are often windy and the beach is in shade by early afternoon so all these facilities are nice to have.
My kids brought their skateboards so the 800m into Cavill Ave wasn't a problem for them and my husband and I enjoyed the 2km walk into Broadbeach for dinner most nights.
The apartments themselves are all privately owned, so the standards vary quite a bit. Also the aspects are all different. The A's are the Easterly aspect, with views and balconies facing straight out over the sand and ocean - divine! The E's are also at the front, facing East and South. The balcony is also over the sea so beautiful vista. Personally, I love the B's (the higher the better, if over the 23rd floor, higher than Dorchester next door so magnificent view into Surfers and still great views of the beach, but the Northerly aspect affords protection from the afternoon winds which come from the south. The C's are next door, also facing North. And the D's are facing West, so views of hinerland and canals.
By the way, you can buy bread, milk and basics next door at Penthouses and drinks, chips and snacks in vending machines downstairs, otherwise it is a bit of a shlep carring supermarket goods back ... but think of it as resistance training! :))
