“Awesome place and better than we had expected.”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit was very clean and the property was also very nice. Beautiful place located four minutes or so from the beach as well as a short walk from grocery stores, restaurants & only a few miles from the Gold Coast Airport. Honestly, the only thing I could complain about is the lack of reception desk hours (m-f 9 to 5, sat 9-12, closed sun), but that's not really a big deal. Also, due to its close proximity to the airport, there are loud planes flying overhead pretty often, but that didn't really bother us too much (although I could see how it would bother most people). We would def stay there again without thinking twice about it.

We have stayed at Sanctuary Lake apartments several times and really like the location as there is surf either at Currumbin Alley or down at Snapper Rocks. Very central for travelling to the theme parks and not far to lots of good eating places in Coolangatta. Units are great for a family but the one we stayed in for our last visit was not as good as other units we have stayed in. The beds were very uncomfortable and the fridge was not much bigger than a bar fridge, it felt like it was probably owned by an older couple (lots of lace doilies!). But aside from that it had everything we needed and the boys loved the pool and spa. It is also a very safe and secure property but it would probably be a good idea if the units had a safe. Loved going for a walk along Currumbin beach and around the lake each morning, beautiful place on earth. One thing to be aware of before you stay there is that the planes literally fly over the top of you which can make it hard to sleep and some of the units are up 4 flights of stairs if you are coming from the basement. Our unit also had no air con which would be uncomfortable in summer.

Room Tip: Corner units are better and I would ask for a unit on the first or second floor, the stairs are very...

Stayed for 4 nights had a lovely time, Half hour away from theme parks, loved the pool and the spa, great 3 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, beds were comfy! Great place for the whole family. Great price aswell if you are travelling with children, The planes do come quiet close and are abit loud but if your out most of the day it's ok they usally stop flying over around 7/8 pm. Short stroll to the beach, and wildlife sanctuary just around the corner. loved going up to the gold coast only a short drive went to the night time markets they were great, especially if you need to buy gifts for everyone back home, we will be back soon time in the future, loved it!

Room Tip: great cheap holiday for families.

The main problem we had was we had our kids in the spa and on the first day one yr people came and got up the kids cause its not a pool and stop playing and yet in the same spa was kids of people who were residents and they were jumping in and out also had floaty toys in the spa when not supposed to and splashing and yet were not told to stop and then it happened again the next day the man said r these yr kids well stop them putting their heads under the water it's not a pool and yet never spoke to the other parents and children and we asked them r they residents they said yes and again these kids had boogy boards in the spa and were splashing and worse these r kids yes it's a spa but we were there watching them and take responsibility for them to put their heads in the water my family felt discriminated against cause we were not residents and felt we couldn't enjoy our stay by using the facilities

In early July 2012 we had a blissful 10 day stay at the Sanctuary Lakes apartment. Surrounded by a pristine lake and the beach, and the delightful sounds of birds and animals at the Currumbin Sanctuary, the Sanctuary Lake Apartments was a delight. For sometime joggers such as ourselves the early morning walk/jog around the quiet neighbourhood started the day on just the right note. The beautifully furnished and clean apartments, complete with all modern facilities, surrounded by palm trees and with easy access downstairs to the spa meant that we never really had to go anywhere if we wished. In fact, getting the kids out of the warm and sparkling clean spa was the biggest challenge we faced on our trip.

The apartments were in walking distance to most shops and just 5 or so minutes from the airport. To venture further was easy. The helpful and friendly hosts had plenty of useful tips about what to see and the best times to do so.

We would most definitely return in the future.

Stayed here for 3 nights for the June long weekend. Family group of 4 adults and 3 children.
The unit was spacious and comfortable, with a large balcony overlooking the spa and part of the pool. We had 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The beds were comfy with good linen.
The spa was one of the best we've used - large and clean. We needed it, as it was too cold to swim and too wet to go to the beach!
Great to be able to walk to the Currumbin Sanctuary. We spent most of a day there and it was close enough to come home for lunch and a rest, then return in the afternoon.
The aircraft landing at the nearby Gold Coast airport have to be seen to be believed - they are very low and loud, but only during the day. The children loved watching them.

Room Tip: The managers of the resort were very helpful in allocating us a unit that met our requirements. They...

My sisters and I have 'get away' weekends every couple of months. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and surroundings. It was peaceful and private. The location suited all our needs, beach walking, restaurants, spa etc.
