This will be fifth stay and won't be our last! Great times had by all, surfing with Sam, walks (or jogs) along the beach, swimming and great breakfasts at Elephant Rock only a 5 minute stroll away. Planes are not an issue as you are out most of the day anyway and there are usually no flights in after 9.30pm.... More

There was a small problem with the cleanliness of the shower in the room. A pile of broken soap was left from previous occupants which was not removed by cleaner. This was reported to manager and fixed to our satisfaction. Use of BBQ had to be booked (too big a hassle) so if it isn't cleaned after use a $50... More

There are some positives and negatives about this place. The good points first. Great location in Currumbin with easy walks to beach, shops, restaurants and cafes. Onsite secure parking and managers on site. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment at the rear of the premises with the bird sanctuary at the back windows. The apartment was clean...

Great place to stay. Loved the fact that the manager was onsite and always around. Just need to remind parents to be more careful with the hygeine of nappies and swimmers on little ones. Over christmas sometimes the pool was a little yuk. Though overall fantastic, thanks

We stayed at Sanctuary Lake Apartments as we had friends up from Canberra and they were staying in the area. The owners were extremely pleasant and accommodating. Our unit was extremely clean and well appointed. The only down size (and it's not a negative) was the aircraft noise at times, however our kids just loved hearing the planes go in... More

Fantastic large pool. Great location. Our only gripe was contacting the caretakers as we were not provided with enough beds. We sent text messages, emails and called many time on The Saturday as the office closes after lunch. Got no reply and had one person sleep on the couch!!!

With young children it was a delight to have such a great flat with ample inside and outdoor space to chill in the evenings- and to have such easy access pool space was a delight. Having a 4 and a 2 1/2 year old, we found all the pool areas to be great... The wading pool and the jaccuzzi were... More

“Ask for a refurbished unit if you do stay here. Most are old, uncomfortable, dirty, dusty and unmaintained.”
  • Fan blades were dirty as well.
