We had a lovely apartment on the 11 floor. The amenities were spotless, very modern, fresh and clean. The sliding door windows opened all the way and gave a panorama feel, looking out towards the Gold Coast and the wider bay. It was very relaxing and it was great watching the surfers and swimmers. Other members of our extended family...

Hi Jennifer Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay. There is no better feeling than sitting on the balcony looking out over that fantastic view.

Rainbow Bay has been our favourite return holiday for many years and Rainbow Place is one of the top choices to stay. Located in one of the most pristine beaches of the Gold Coast. A surf beach which seems to be calmer than most beaches and is a great place to learn how to surf, making it particularly good for...

Old apartment block but the one I was in has had kitchen renovations. These are not 'modern'. Nevertheless spacious and comfortable with all having balconies looking over the beach. Fab location across the road from the beach, with the large RSL club nearby as well as a large shopping centre. Full kitchen and laundry, so suits longer stays. If you...

Thanks for your review Vince. We don’t have record of you staying with us but possibly you were visiting someone in that apartment. Yes the building is an older type building but the bonus with that is the apartments are generally larger than you get with newer type buildings. The apartments themselves have all been renovated some more recent than...
