Judy and Chris is an amazing couple who ensure your stay is perfect in every way, all...

This was our first trip to the Gold Coast and we can't wait to go back. We stayed for two weeks at One The Esplanade and am glad that we did. The apartment setting was the perfect size, close to everything, and the views from all sides of the apartment were fantastic. Chris and Judy went above and beyond with...

We`have just returned from the perfect break which in full was from the magnificent appartment we were allocated. After 14 years of searching for the perfect spot and appartment we have finally found what we have been looking for. Situated right on the beach with views to die for (we were on the 14th floor with a view of the...

Booked a 2 room apartment based on tripadvisor reviews and stayed for a week on a low season rate. Couldn't be better for the location and the apartment being on the beach with its panaromic unobstructed sea view. We were initially hesitant on the apartment being no air conditioning in the bedrooms, however you don't need it. Close to everything,...

Booked two 2-bedroom apartments for four nights from 28 July. Arrived Saturday evening after the front desk was closed, so keys were in a locker for us, with full instructions emailed to us prior. Underground secure parking was brilliant. The views from both apartments were simply breathtaking and uninterrupted. Location was ideal as we walked everywhere in Surfers. Short drive...

My husband and I enjoyed a recent stay at the wonderful One the Esplanade. As per many other reviews, Judy and Chris were extremely helpful.
