The two bedroom apartment was stunning bright and airy with huge sweeping verandas, when we first walked in it took our breath away, the apartment was very spacious and well equipped, nice quiet position 15 min walk into the heart of surfers n 10 min walk to Tedder ave, the staff were very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

We arrived as an East Coast cyclone hit the Gold Coast in June this year, the Managers were charming and stayed up late to welcome us. Our 2 bed apartment on the 8th floor was immaculate, spacious, extremely clean with 2 bathrooms, 2 double bedrooms, large kitchen/lounge room which opened out to a large balcony. The bedroom curtains were lined so the early morning sun didn't wake us. It was delight sitting on the balcony every morning to beautiful beach and ocean views.

We booked a night accommodation here on our way to Brisbane. Upon check in, we were awed by the sight of the sandy white beach and the vast ocean views. You could hear the waves crashing on shores and it sounded like music to our ears. The apartment is meticulously decorated with the whole kitchen fully equipped for a big gathering. We couldn't ask for more. It is indeed a lovely place to stay for a short holiday. Wish we could linger here longer!

Recently stayed in a 2 bedroom beach view apartment ...... The experience was fantastic .... Great views, great layout for a family holiday, furnishings and inclusions were great, fantastic location all topped off by the friendly, courteous and helpful managers who went out their way to make our family holiday memorable ..... we'll be back .... thank you

The apartment was wonderful-- the view was amazing- a panoramic view of the ocean-absolutely lovely!! Great position - so close to the beach and away from the hustle and bustle. The hosts were always extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much of a problem for them. Great place and I would highly recommend.

The Waterford is great, we had a lovely apartment with amazing views and it was fully equipped with everything a family could need. The managers were lovely and helpful. Our 3 girls loved the pool and spa. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to the Gold Coast. Next time I think we will get a 3 bedroom apartment so the kids can spread out a bit more
