          Excellent location close to patrolled beach and Tedder Ave, whilst an easy walk to Surfers Paradise and Marina Mirage. Apartment suitable for our needs, great view and well fitted out. Helpful friendly managers, exceptionally well maintained gardens, building, pool and tennis court. Will return.

          Hi, I was just wondering if you provide a cot for younger children? We are travelling interstate so won't be bringing one with us - if so do we need to let staff know before arrival or is there one in the apartment already? Thanks!
