A small motel close to the beach, but also close the highway & airport, so noise might bother some, although it wasn't an issue for us. Rooms are modern (retro styled) but bathroom is small, however the kitchenette does have a nicely stocked mini bar. Staff where great.

Dear Richard G, Thankyou for your review. I am glad the noise was not an issue. There is a 10.pm curfew at the airport which quietens down but if noise is an issue, always ask for one of the back rooms. I am glad our staff looked after you. We are very proud of our customer service awards. Regards Diane

These are separate units with a small kitchenette and bathroom. The front desk staff is very nice and caring. But often times, steps out of the office even during check out time. You have to ring the buzzer and then she comes by. The location is a just a few min drive to Coolangatta, where all the main center is...

This is the cleanest accommodation I have ever stayed in and I was a travel agent doing hotel inspections for 22 years. The staff were particularly helpful and pleasant; they made me feel like a guest in their home. Stayed in Apartment 12 , a one bedroom which has an outdoor terrace with table and chairs looking out to sea....

Apartment 12 was perfect for our family of four, our girls are 6&8. The beds and couches were very comfortable and the decor is charming. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The beach is empty and beautiful. Close to cafes and beaches for surfing , walking distance and driving. The hosts at the front office are so kind and helpful!!!...

We stayed at this motel last August using it as a base before heading out on a two week road trip into the outback. As a result of a great initial stay, we rebooked the motel for the end of the trip as well. We just wanted to add to the positive comments on TA about the service and the...

Excellently situated across the road from the Gold Coast Airport and with John Flynn Hospital 5 minutes away La Costa motel was the perfect choice for us as we had a flight to meet and a Drs appointment to attend.

Dear Oconnell12017, Thankyou for your review. I am glad we could help while you were attending John Flynn Hospital. Next time you will have to visit for a holiday and go for walks along that beach boardwalk. Regards, Diane

We had the family apartment upstairs - it was very nice. Awesome for us - just our teenagers were a little large for the kiddie bunks that were meant for the kids. They survived but when the one on top wiggles the one on the bottom protested it was very distrubtive. we had our own room and were very happy.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful. Room was spotless and bed and pillows extremely comfortable. Mini bar was well stocked with everything you would want. Breakfast was included the first night and very much appreciated. Beach a mere short walk across the road. North Kirra Surf Club a 10 minute walk...
