Being renovated recently, very spacious living areas, only a short stroll from the heart of Surfers, quiet area, fantastic pool/bbq/spa area. Very helpful and friendly stuff. One of the best value on the Gold Coast, yet, very comfortable. Highly sought if value is important but you still want comfort and quality.

Thanks Erika and Allan for your hospitality. We had a great holiday, which was made easier with your help and advice - very important when you have three kids. The kids loved the pool and when the kids are happy, we are happy. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Thanks again. We will be back.

We stayed at this apartment with two other families for 6 days in the late January this year. Although this is only a 3.5-star hotel, but Allan and Erika's hospitality have made our stay a 5-star experience! The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. All basic facilities which we could think of, even the clothes dryers,...

Pool was awesome - our four year old never wanted to get out. 5 minute walk to centre of Surfers as well as bus stops. We are coming back for...
