“Top place top people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

We love this place. The management are terrific. They keep the pool spotless and it is just such a great place to chill out. Fantastic place to have brunch along the road and a great Mediterranean restaurant 5 minutes walk away; the beach is literally just there and going to sleep with the noise of the surf is just magic. Love this place. Plus we are booked in to go again in June, Yay!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get an ocean view - its worth it!

Stayed here for 10 days. Great way to unwind. Good sized apartments. I stayed in both ocean front and ocean view. Fantastic location right on the beach. Everything you need for a great stay. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Whilst the ocean front rooms are fantastic for the view, the noise of the ocean can be a bit too muc...

I must say I have stayed at Spindriff Apartments many times and each time it gets better and better, when you are away from like I am you really want to relax in comfort and in a apartment that has the requirements that you require when you are there, most of all the Spindriff managers and staff are fantastic and look after the premises with pride.
Thanks for our great stays see you soon

I decided to stay Spindrift because of its location facing to a sand beach where you can walk, swim and surf. I also took my bike with me and there was a safe space for my bike on the basement. The sea breeze came into the room and it made me feel very comfortable. The kitchen, balcony, laundry and shower room are perfectly ready for use. There was no air conditioner but I didn't feel very hot because of the sea breeze. The manager and staff were very kind. I definitely book Spindrift again in my next visit!!!

Room Tip: If you want to stay at a beach facing room, make sure the room is like that because there are other...

We had room 28 on the top floor, and it was excellent.

I did a bit of research before booking, and the price at Spindrift was very competitive especially once you take into account the location - absolute beachfront.

The room was good, certainly on par or exceeding what we expected in terms of fittings whilst being substantially larger than we expected. The location, not just in terms of being on the beach, but also the local area at Nobby Beach is first class. The beach is stunning, the Nobby SLSC has good food and cold beer and the Nobby shopping village (300m away on GC Hwy) has pretty much everything you need, including some new, funky bars that are full on Friday and Saturday nights.

We visit the GC a couple of times a year, and from now on, probably won't even bother looking at other accommodation options.

Room Tip: Rooms on the northern side of the building receive sunlight all day - we had room 28 and the balcony...

Great location for a family away from the hussle and bussle of Surfers. Right on the beach so you dont even have to cross a road to get to the beach. Unit 10 is where we stayed and the unit is modern and a great view straight out onto the beach. Surf life savers set up their flags in front or very close to the front of the property.

The beachfront apartment was just what I was looking for. We could walk straight out the gate onto the sand and surf. The apartment had everything we needed, but in summer it could do with air-conditioning. The management were helpful and friendly. I look forward to staying there again soon.
