Had a fabulous stay here. This is a beautiful, quiet area of the Gold Coast that we were unfamiliar with before this visit. The apartments are in a wonderful location on Snapper Pount with views right up to Surfers. Our apartment (21) was spacious, with high quality furniture throughout and really well equipped. We were two couples and had plenty... More

We once again enjoyed our annual holiday at our favorite place in our usual apartment on the top floor. The weather was not the best, but when you have the views, the whales, welcome visitors and the RSL Club Twin Towns not far away, all is good.

We love Rainbow Place and have been having holidays here for many years. The units are renovated and have great views. This is a great spot for the kids and away from the hussle and bussle of Surfers Paradise. It's a great beach holiday.
