Apartments are all different, this year ours was noisy, dated & grubby There are lots of nicer, cheaper options available. We had a nicer one last year. Not thoroughly cleaned before our arrival; shards of glass brushed under the sofa & coffee table, windows needed cleaning, bathroom would benefit from some bleach. Apartments are not cleaned just new Manchester left...

Two couples had plenty of space here in a three bedroom apartment on the 13th floor. Great balcony and views over Coolangatta Beach and a handy location with restaurants and shops nearby. If you can't face the rough and tumble of the icy surf (20 deg C the day we were there) there is a pool on the second floor...

Halfway into our drive I realised...

Two bedroom apartment is good for those competing in Coolangatta Gold. Large bath, high undercover parking and large car parking bays if you have lots of surf life saving equipment. Large rooms and great view of Coolangatta Beach, Greenmount and the cost to Surfers Paradise.
