Very family friendly, very tidy & had everything you could possibly need. Just a quick walk to the beach & with the 3 pools, kids were in heaven. Completely self contained with plenty of cutlery & crockery. Also had a dishwasher!! We were able to comfortably sit on the balcony with the kids. Plenty of room in the apartment for...

I'm glad you had such a great holiday. It really is a great holiday destination and so close to everything on the Sunshine Coast. There's also a great swing park right next door which the littlies love and not sure if you noticed but there is a bbq zone at each of the pools, great for family gatherings. I think...

Good location to beach, 3 pools to utilise, quiet location, nicely furnished, very clean and comfortable. We did stay at a peak time between Christmas and New Year) and quite hot, unfortunately unable to open windows in some bedrooms due to ants nests and aircon was only in living and master, so nights we sweltered. We booked 2 units and...

Glad that your holiday was a good one for all the family :) If you do stay with us again let us know and we'll try to get apartments next to each other or at least in the same stairwell. A couple of things we wish you would have brought to our attention as we could easily have fixed them...

Six of us rented the penthouse (N25) at Surfside for the period 15 - 22 December 2016. The place had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry, fully equipped kitchen, spacious lounge/dining area and magnificent direct ocean views. The bonus came when we went upstairs to the top viewing level which contained a barbecue, a huge spa and had stunning views...

Wanted to get away for a week just before Xmas and booked a week at this lovely resort.

A one-night stay. 3 bed apartment was spacious and met our needs. Only issue was with air-con! Late check-out for $45 was really appreciated. Allowed us to make good use of the pool on the last day. Struggled to find breakfast locally - surfclub wasnt serving this weekend. Id stay again :)

Glad you had a good stay. The late check out option is very handy when available and great for guests wanting to extend their stay but not stay another night. Thanks for your feedback and hope to see you next time for a longer stay :)

Visited with friends in early October 2016 & stayed in a 3 bedroomed, ground floor apartment. Each apartment has a parking space allocated with lots of room on the street if need be. The accomodation was a little tired but all in all, clean, satisfactory & well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven etc & all the essentials. Ideally located on...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Not sure if you booked direct with us but its always a good idea to give us a call and we can send photos of apartments that are available. We like to say that every apartment has it's own personality as they are all individually owned and the décor is different in...

We had a fantastic 5 night stay here in a 2 bedroom apartment which accommodated 2 adults and 2 children very comfortably. Our apartment was a ground floor apartment which was great as we had direct access to the apartments grassed area, bbq's, pools, and most importantly, the beach. Everything we needed was in the apartment and it was an...

Thank you for great feedback. Whilst we have some higher apartments that have lovely views you can't beat a ground floor apartment when you have children. You don't have to worry about them going up and down in lifts as they can walk straight out the back door to everything they need. So glad you enjoyed your stay :) It's...

We were on the first floor. PROs: Beachfront location. 2br apartment was very nice, clean and spacious, with artworks. View of beach vegetation and pool. Plenty of pillows and blankets were provided. Easy underground parking with choice of elevator or stairs. CONs: Bedroom was not dark enough at night as shutters did not block enough light. Cigarette smoke from other...

Thanks for your feedback Cate. I think you might have stayed in S11 which is a lovely apartment. The plantation shutters in the bedroom probably do keep the bedrooms a bit lighter. All of our apartments have different décor some with blinds and others with block out curtains. Something to think about when next you book. I think you'll agree...

This was our 4th stay and feels like we're returning home. Faultless accommodation. On-site managers and their staff a credit to the complex. We are now "recognised" and are welcomed back each time. Well worth paying extra for a second bedroom and bathroom. Luxury to have fidget/snore free sleep! What a way to escape some of the winter in Northland,...

“Our penthouse had extraordinary views but that is probably the case with most of the units due to the layout of the site.”
