“What a Beautiful House”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We visited Surfers Paradise for our niece's wedding, June 2015. As we are from Los Angeles, we wanted to have a home where the family could all be together as she prepared for her big day. Anchorage Waters was fabulous in so many ways. For our family to be together. For our family to entertain our new extended family. To cook, entertain and just relax. Bedrooms were amazing, and there was space for everyone to have a little quiet when needed and space for everyone to be together. We travel frequently and have rented several homes - Anchorage Waters ranks as one of the best homes we have ever rented and we certainly recommend this home to large families who want to relax and yet have great access to Surfers Paradise. Well done Jennifer for designing, creating and offering a real quality location - well thought out space, well equipped kitchen and over all a very nice place to call home for a week.

“60th Birthday House - Fantastic in every way”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed for 5 nights with 14 adults and 6 children under 10 and the house lived up to expectaions, easily meeting everybody's needs.
With 7 bedroms each with a full size onsuite and an 8th bathroom, this house is fantastic, 10 minutes walk to Cavill Mall, right in the heart of Surfers Paradise or 10 minutes easy walk to the beach.
The are two large seperate lounge areas, one upstairs, which the kids used and one downstairs next to the pool table and huge kitched and dinning table. Outside is great as well with the large heated spa and inground pool and fishing pontoon on the river.
If your after a large home for a family holiday or function, then you have found it with this place, fantastic.

We stayed for four nights in May 2015. The house has absolutely everything you could possibly think of. The beds were comfortable and made up with lovely white linens, the kitchen was well equipped with new appliances, the pool and spa were perfect. We had a perfect few days.

“Great family/large group destination”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife and I and our 4 children, their partners and 6 grandchildren stayed at Anchorage Waters for 5 days during April. What a blessing. We had a great time as family and there were plenty of places on the property where each of us could spend time in our own space when needed. The pool, spa and pool table were a great hit with everyone and the home ticked all the boxes for all our needs during that time.The home was well maintained and easy to keep clean and we were able to park 4 cars and a jetski inside the property. The close proximity to restaurants, beaches and churches meant we could walk everywhere. We certainly would stay there again. Thank you Jennifer and Nick

“Great family Easter celebration”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Anchorage Waters for 6 nights for my mum's 70 th birthday which coincided with Easter. There were 13 of us ranging in age from 6 to 72. Plenty of space for everyone without getting under each other's feet. (Doesn't matter how close you are you still need space!!) The spa, pool and kayaks were a highlight. Everything we needed was there and it was a close walk to shops for supplies. The house is well appointed and having your own ensuite is a huge plus. Would definitely recommend for large family groups.

“Fantastic family accomodation”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were lucky enough to stay at this fantastic house in February. It is exactly how it is shown in the photos with everything you could possibly need and more. We were a family group of 12 people and really appreciated everyone having their own bedrooms and ensuites, all beautifully appointed. The living and outside areas were all very spacious and the pool and spa was great and well used. We also had lots of fun with the pool table, a great added bonus. It is easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants and Cavill Ave. Jennifer was great to deal with and very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this house for groups or families and will definitely book again when we are back at Surfers Paradise.
