Oscar On Main
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Stayed here recently for 4 days. Have stayed at other places in the area in the past, but now will only stay at Oscars! Friendly managers, lovely gardens and a fabulous view. The apartments are very clean with all the necessary items required for a comfortable stay. Close to great restaurants at Tedder Avenue. Really can't fault anything about our stay, will certainly be back!!!!!!

We recently stayed for three days at Oscar on main. We came to see the whales on their migration north and were not disappointed. Our unit was south east facing and was just perfect for us, my 86 year old parents were with us and they really enjoyed Oscar as well. Main beach really is the quiet jewel on the coast and the local facilities on Tedder avenue are more than ample. A very courteous management team made our stay really enjoyable, thank you.
Oh and the weather was just perfect July winter days 25c.

Room Tip: Maybe a north/east facing room in winter. We stayed on 11th floor and views were great.

Thanks Ron. Glad we were able to ensure that you and your parents had a wonderful 3 days together, enjoying all the delights Main Beach has to offer.
It has been a wonderful start to the whale season, with many sightings. Guests have watched them frolic from the balconies of the apartments on a few occasions as well. The whaling season lasts until November so you have plenty of time to come back and see them again.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Oscar on Main was great location being right beside Tedder Street shops and restaurants and one street back from Main Beach. Also able to walk across bridge to Southport and down to Southport yacht club. Nicely appointed apartment building and beautiful views from 27th floor especially with lovely balconies put from lounge and bedrooms. Spacious apartment and well designed. Host very hospitable. Would recommend highly to anyone wanting a holiday break in Surfers Paradise.

Awesome review - thanks
Glad you made the most of the views from the balconies and exploring the locale.
I think Main Beach beats Surfers Paradise any day so definitely come back here again.
At least the weather was warmer than in NZ for you.

This was our third visit to Main Beach and after checking reviews and recommendations we considered Oscar on Main. We were attracted to the heated indoor pool for the kids. We were very pleased with our stay, friendly managers from our first contact. The building is immaculate. The kids were excited to find the room had plenty of toys, games and DVDs to keep them busy. It's perfectly located near the beach and Tedder Avenue. We had 3 BBQ dinners in the lovely grounds. We will certainly head back to Oscar next time we visit the Gold Coast.

Thank you so much for your review. We are vey proud of what we have achieved since we have been here. For you to rate the building as 'immaculate' makes all our hard work worthwhile.
Lovely to have you all here. It was a pleasure to host such a delightful family.
We look forward to your return visit.

Spent the weekend on the Gold Coast for the marathon and chose Oscar mainly for it's proximity to the start and finish of the race.
A pleasant surprise was to see how close it was to the restaurants on Tedder Street. And also to the Southport LSC and only a short walk to Fisherman's Wharf.
It is a nice quiet hotel and our 2 bed apartment was spacious with nice furniture and fully equipped kitchen. Beds were comfortable.
Made use of the indoor pool, the spa and the steam room - which were handy facilities as the weather was lovely but a bit cool in the shade. I looked at the outdoor pool which seemed a tad small and as it was in the shade was definitely chilly - so it was back to the indoor pool for me. And anyway it's much larger.
Didn't need to speak to Staff much - but when we did they were friendly and helpful.

Thanks for your feedback.
We were completely booked out for the Gold Coast marathon weekend. It was a bit of chilly weekend so we expected that guests would make full use of the heated indoor facilities, which they did. The larger indoor pool certainly gave everyone enough space to enjoy their time away. It was a busy weekend and I am glad to read that, even at full capacity, you had a wonderful time and enjoyed all that was on offer.

Booked 2 nights R&R here during a trip further north and was surprised that it was as promised and as reviews on TA. Very well maintained environment
Had a 1BR Ocean View apt on 9th floor. The managers were helpful, efficient and always pleasant even when I had to call out of office hours. Bedding and furnishings were very comfortable and a step up from hotel style
The location is great for Tedder Avenue, Southport Yacht Club Dining, beachside walks etc and amenities better than most we have stayed in this area. Indoor pool and gym was as good as 5 star hotels we have used in other cities
Ocean views and listening to the surf at night only enhanced the experience
Will return next year

Room Tip: Ocean views definitely worth it. Noise is not an issue at this location

Thank you for your kind words.
We do our best to represent our complex clearly, with integrity, on the internet. It is hard to capture the spaciousness of the apartments in the photos as there is plenty of room to spread out and make yourself at home. We like to under promise and over deliver. That way guests are pleasantly surprised when they first arrive.

Love to see you back next year.

Stayed on the 22nd Floor with wife and a 2 year old for the June long weekend. The apartment was very spacious, one bedroom having a comfy king size and the other a queen and a single. The kitchen facilities were great, even having a pod coffee machine. We know the Gold Coast well but had spent no time at this end of town. The location is perfect. Tedder Avenue restaurants and coffee places were just around the corner and the beach a block away. Unfortunately, the beach has been reduced in size after recent storms but a short walk would get you to a place to play in the sand. Strolling along the esplanade to Cavill Av is easy and enjoyable even with 2 year old. Management were helpful, the indoor pool, spa and steam room excellent for extra amusement on our rainy weekend and the trip to Seaworld would have been short had we been minded to go there. I would say, skip Broadbeach, this is better.
