            Relax vacation, strongly recommend to family or group”

            If you are a surfer's lover, this apartment is just right for you. It is value for money and it is just right next to the beach. We were a group of 4, two elderlies and two adults, spent two nights here. We were quite lucky to be arranged to top floor which has two storey in flat, upper is with two rooms and bathroom. Very cosy environment. Though there was problem with the water tap on saturday, the owner tried his very best the fix it and we were really appreciated! Location is within walking distance to center of surfers paradise. There is also garrage for parking with direct elevator to your floor. Will definitely be back next time when visiting Gold Coast!

            Stayed for 6 nights and didn't want to leave. Apartment was adequate, clean and cosy. Your basic kitchen stuff, washing machine and dryer in the apartment. Had to wash the bed sheet and pillow cases though as they were a bit dusty. Location was excellent. Walking distance to the beach, literally just a minute's walk. A short drive to the main beach area of Surfers Paradise. Apartment was also facing the sea with a partial view which was good enough. Would return if we're back in Gold Coast.

            Emerald Sands is a boutique apartment building that is very clean and comfortable with great facilities in each apartment. Our apartment had great views of the ocean and you could feel the refreshing sea breeze. In addition we had a secure undercover car park. The main shopping centre was 15 minutes walk. The managers, Wayne and Cat were very friendly and welcoming , giving any assistance as required.

The guardians of the place, Wayne and Cat, were very helpful and friendly when coming to seeking advise on where and what to do around Gold Coast.

Wifi, foxtel cable, kitchen equipments and the rooms are big enough for all of us. Wayne was very kind and helpful to us. The beach is just a 5 minute walk and the ocean view from the apartment is really wonderful. I highly recommend this for the entire family. Cleanliness, affordability and accessibility to the beach and restaus are all checked . We'll definitely coming back.

            I was met with the very friendly and helpful manager which gave me a great first impression. My apartment was a bit tired- but clean and great view of the ocean. There is not a lot of food/ retail close by.. the closest spot was northcliffe surf life saving club which offers free membership to anyone staying at Emerald Sands - so great bonus.. free undercover parking.. another bonus. Yes would recommend to friends and family.

            Location is perfect - walking distance to Surfers paradise, easy to catch buses/trams to the theme parks, beach views from every apartment. The chap who greeted us was amazing - friendly, informative, genuinely thoughtful (offered the umbrellas without us thinking to ask!) The apartments - nothing to rave about, but also nothing to rage about! Well appointed kitchen, TV with adequate channels, newly refurbished bathroom. Lounges were a bit uncomfortable but not terrible. Perfectly good place to spend some down time.

            The apartment is clean and comfortable. It is beside the beach, although not a walking distance to the actual surfers paradise beach and shopping area. I had a two bedroom apartment. The size of the bedrooms, the living/dining room and kitchenette is just nice. The only thing that I'm not too happy is that there is only 1 shower room. It would have been perfect if the apartment has 2 shower rooms.

            Stayed in 1 bedroom apartment. There is air conditioner in the living room, washing machine, dryer, microwave, stove, tv has a lot of channels, can choose to watch netflix as well if you have an account. There's a small balcony in the bedroom and a bigger balcony in the living room facing the beach. 5 mins walk to the beach, 10-15 minutes walk to the heart of surfers paradise. Only bad thing is its a little far from the tram station. So if you have multiple luggages and not coming by uber or airport shuttle, you will have to walk for a bit of distance from the tram station. Definitely recommended as one the best value for money with all the appliances in the room.

            We got this place at a very cheap price and although it is getting older it is still more than satisfactory for the price. Location is 100 metres from the beach and 900 metres from the main cabill st in surfers. Rooms were more than big enough and the air conditioning was very cold. Balcony was huge. Swimming pool was medium size but no one ever used it with us. Free wi fi free underground secure parking. Lift to your door. Bedrooms accessed via staircase and lounge,kitchen and dining downstairs. Takeaways just around the corner easy 200 metre walk. Hosts Tanya and Darren very helpful and always around to help if needed. All appliances including washing machine,dryer ironing board,microwave fridge iron,TV and quality linen,cutlery and crockery. Great stay at a budget price. 4 stars

            Fantastic, would stay here again”

            Great apartment for a reasonable price that suited all our needs. Amazing view as its right across from the beach. Only a short drive to Surfers town centre and Pacific mall which is huge. The couple who manage the place are lovely and very accommodating. Would definitely come back again.

            Emerald Sands is close to the beach and shops. Friendly staff. The only thing The security deposit needs to be advertised as we were not expecting this.
