Oscar On Main
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2012

Last minute one-night booking - quite expensive for two, but would be amazing value for four. Huge living areas, large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plenty of cupboard space, well equipped, super clean, east-facing expansive ocean views, large balconies catch morning and afternoon sun. Main Beach location is excellent with great shops, cafes and restaurants along Tedder Ave. For the price to clean up before leaving is a bit much.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the more spectacular the view.

It sounds as though you really enjoyed your apartment during your recent stay with us at Oscar on Main. Thank you for taking the time to review our property and I am pleased to hear the apartment had all you expected.

The additional clean fee is quite standard across apartment buildings and applies when guests leave excessive mess that takes the cleaning staff considerably more time to complete. We certainly don't expect that you clean the apartment yourself or anything like that! It is rarely if ever requested from guests as we find the majority of people staying tend not to mind putting rubbish in the bin and popping the dishwasher on. If in doubt, you are always welcome to ask at reception if the fee applies.

Yes the views are quite special from the ocean view apartments! Combined with the convenience of the heart of Main Beach just at the end of the street, we really have the best of both worlds!

I am so glad you enjoyed your brief, spontaneous stay with us! Let's hope you can stay for longer next time as we have some wonderful 5 and 7 night stay rates.

We spent 3 nights in a 2 bedroom superior apartment and loved every minute of it!
The furnishings were modern and the apartment itself was huge with amazing ocean views!
The location was perfect as I was down for the Gold Coast marathon. I was able to walk to and from the start line and we made the most of the Tedder Avenue cafes and restaurants after the race.
Overall we had a fantastic experience and I will definitely be back next year!

Wow - We are getting some great feedback from the Gold Coast marathon weekend! Thank you so much for staying with us. I'm pleased we were able to facilitate your needs and I do hope we have the pleasure of continuing to do so in the coming years.

Tedder Avenue has some wonderful restaurants and cafes to relax and unwind and they are all just a few minutes walk from Oscar on Main. It seems we have the best there is to offer when it comes to location - specially in regards to the Gold Coast Marathon!

Have stayed here for the past 3 years during the GC marathon, easy to get to start line and handy to watch all the races. Kids loved the indoor pool and room (luxury appt) was more than big enough and views fantastic. Will be back again, and again!

Room Tip: luxury appts have great views and size for families

What a wonderful experience we had with the Gold Coast marathon this year! We were fortunate enough to have many of the participants and supporters staying at Oscar on Main and we are so pleased we were able to meet your expectations.

The luxury apartments really make the most of our fabulous location and are perfect for families because, as you mentioned, the size and views are above and beyond other apartment standards.

It's great that your children made the most of the heated indoor pool. It is so popular in the Winter time when it's perhaps a little too cool to be frolicking outdoors in your bathers! I hope the steam room and spa aided in relaxing the tired muslces as well! We look forward to welcoming you back. Thank you so much for taking time to review Oscar on Main.

I shared a two bedroom apartment with a work colleague just recently. To sum up.. Simply a lovely stay as it was an amazing apartment.

The apartment was simply outstanding in terms of space, furnishing, sound proofing and location.

Bedroom was exceptionally large, with quality linen, covers and so forth. Plus lighting, television lamps, etc where quality appliances.

The lounge room, kitchen and common area was also exceptional. With the kitchen having all the utensils, liquids, etc to work with. Albeit we didn't use them.

Views were terrific together with location.

So I recommend.
