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. This was made all the easier because of the owners Diane and John who were ever so obliging; even to...

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...

We were so pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. We were just after somewhere to lay our head for the night, as we were attending a birthday party at Kirra. The friendly check in staff, cleanliness and facilities including all modern amenities plus extra touches all make this an incredible place to stay on the Coast. We will definitely be back....

Quick overnight getaway for a romantic dinner date at local restaurant at Burleigh. Perfect room with wonderful hospitality from our hosts - comfy beds, super quiet air conditioning, well stocked kitchenette area and couple of mins walk to pristine beaches. We loved the retro quirkiness of La Costa - from the colourful outdoor table & chairs to the lushest carpet...

This is a lovely spot to stay very clean and modern. Short walk to the beach. I am not sure it is a motel. There are no real meal options including breakfast although single serve packages of cereal are available. Reception hours are a bit limited but the staff are friendly and obliging.

I stayed here in early November with my husband who booked this motel last minute. To be 100% honest I would never return. The rooms are noisy and extremely small. We could hear conversations in the next room and general traffic noise. It wasn't 'relaxing' by any means and not what he expected based on other reviews and photos. It's...
