That basically covers the entire stretch of Gold Coast apartment locations.

How many people and what is your nightly budget? Any other preferences or specifics? This would help greatly as it will minimise thread ping pong.

If you're going to select based purely on proximity to the beach, Id probably suggest Air on Broadbeach, Oceana, or Mantra Coolangatta. But that would mean you discount some of the best service/facility/product properties such as Peppers, Soul, and a couple of the Meritons

Also have a look at Xanadu at Main Beach.

www.wotif.com.au & bookings.com will give you an idea of what's available, where & at what rate.

I generally use them for reference & book direct with the property.

thanks - yes sorry for my vague question, i have been searching wotif and looking at maps. probably up to $250 a night, we really liked staying at 'surfers aquarius' at broadbeach but its too far to walk to shops or cafes - 25 min walk. we would like a 2 bedroom place and options for other friends to rent 2 or 3 bedroom places would be good too.

Hi,

Broadbeach would suit you - look at Merition Apartments - although not on the waterfront its a very easy 5 min walk to the shops & beach.

Also look at Air on Broadbeach & The Wave Apartments - both in prime locations in Broadbeach.

Jane - what time of year are you looking at? It can make a big difference with the pricing.

Oceana at Broadbeach is directly across the street from the ocean; there are a couple of restaurants & a liquor shoo behind the apartments and a mixed goods "corner shop" a block away.

Xanadu is just footsteps to the beach, probably 3 minutes to Southport Surf Club. 5 -10 mins to Southport Yacht Club, probably another 5 to Marina Mirage.

Another 10 minute walk to a raft of restaurants, supermarket, news agency etc.
