Beaches On Wave Street Gold Coast
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Mermaid Beach
Reviewed June 12, 2009

We found the place to be well priced and the rooms were really nice. Also, the exterior was really nice, well maintained and the bus stop was only a short walk. The only negative was that the staff seemed a bit stressed, so soured our experience (but only a little). I would recommend this place to others.

We stayed at Beaches on Wave for a month and were very satisfied with the accommodations. The 3rd floor, corner, 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment was roomy and with a breeze possible from two balconies and windows on three sides meant we never used the air conditioning even though temperatures were 30 degrees with humidity of 100% some days. We had only 1 cockroach try to enter the apartment from the stairwell and certainly did not have an infestation as reported in another review. In fact we saw only one cockroach on the entire grounds of the complex which since you are staying in the sub-tropics is exceptional. The management, Bob and his wife, could not have been more friendly or accommodating from the time of our son booking the apartment for us locally all the way through our stay. Bob always had time for conversation and was genuinely interested in making sure our stay was a pleasant one. The location is perfect, 3 short blocks to the beach ( 2 or 3 minute walk) and just around the corner from Nobby's Beach shops ( 2 bakers, butcher, grocery store, surf shops , several excellent restaurants, cafes and takeaways). The only negative is that street noise at night with the windows open can be a little loud but that is going to be true about every hotel and apartment located along the Gold Coast Highway. We definitely would stay at Beaches on Wave on our next visit to Australia.

Admittedly my stay was a while back, but after finding this website, I had to write a review.

The staff were very friendly and helpful in emails, and it was definately the best value. However we were given a ground floor apartment with no views, which was fine, except for the fact it was infested with cockroaches. We didn't complain at the time because we thought it was just commonplace, but of course it's definately not! Hindsight...

The apartment itself was fairly modern and nice, although dark because there was hardly any room for sun to get in, but the experience unfortunately was totally ruined for me and I would never go back. I only gave it a 2 rather than a 1 because it actually would have been great if it wasn't for that one major problem.

After extensive searching of the net decided to contact this property. Their own site has the best specials which travel agent said they couldn't hope to beat. Emailed owner with questions re location and the apartments, with the questions answered pretty briefly and not friendly - basically told "we are a very busy place and if we spend all our time answering questions wouldn't have time to have guests" etc. Nevertheless decided to give the guy the benefit of the doubt and pleased we did as the place itself is fantastic.

Located in Mermaid Beach a block back from bus stop and main shopping area. Heaps of restaurants nearby (the Italian one with plastic covers on outside has the most amazing steak!), and stores to get food from. Two blocks to beach, we were on top floor and couldn't see ocean but could hear it. Was a wee way out from the main Surfers area on bus, but does have underground parking if get a car which might have been better.

The grounds and apartments are in perfect condition. Nice pool and bbq area and spa etc. The apartments are secure and very spacious. We had a nice big lounge (couch not comfy though), with dining area and tv. Nice big balcony with clothes rack which was handy. The kitchen was outstanding - fully self catered, great oven and dishwasher etc. Very tidy and new. Nice big bathroom with full laundry also so were completely sorted. Bedroom was not the biggest, but was big enough. Bed was very uncomfy however after a week, and the pillows were extremely thin. Even though we were sleeping so close to main road could not hear it with window shut, and not too noisy with it open.

After initial bad vibe from owner he did book us one activity and was kind of helpful, but definitely could have been better. However do not let this put you off as the accommodation itself is absolutely amazing and very well self-contained.
