Me and my Mum stayed here just over two weeks ago from July 21st-28th. This place is literally right on the beach. We were on the 9th floor and the view is amazing from both the balcony and the rooms. We had a 1 bedroom apartment and it was spacious and clean, well equipped kitchen. I'm not the world's best sleeper and to say that I slept better was awesome, who wouldn't, listening to that beautiful sea. Central to Cavill Ave, just a 2 minute walk. Free car parking. Judith and Chris were also very helpful. Highly recommend and would stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view.

We stayed in a two bedroom beachside apartment. The apartment was very spacious & well equipped with everything you need during your stay. The views from the apartment were absolutely gorgeous, from the lounge & balcony you looked right up the beach. The bedroom views were just as gorgeous with the 2nd bedroom looking towards Coolangatta. The location is absolute beachfront, so you walk through the pool area & straight onto the beach. It is also a very short walk to the shops & beach markets. Judy & Chris were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. I have no hesitation in recommending One the Esplanade to anyone looking for somewhere comfortable to stay with amazing views.

This would have to be one of the most amazing apartment i have ever stayed at. From the moment we walked in the room , we were all stunned by the amazing view. Even the night view was great.This place is so on the beach ,you really feel like you are right on the sandy beach. Loved the apartment we had views from the lounge, dining room ,bedrooms , and even the toilet All the rooms have balcony views , which is fantastic. Great for seeing the sunrise and sunset. Even the kitchen cupboards are very well designed .Loved everything about it.Great location close to everything. Very very happy with my choice . Had a free whale show from the balcony . This place could not get any better. Judy & Chris are very helpful & really look after you during your stay. I really love this place i will be back again i promise you.

Room Tip: We had a water front room , but all the rooms have balcony views.

Very central location, close to shopping, public transport (to and from airport / Metricon Stadium for sports fans) with wonderful ocean views located right on the beach entry via a private gate. Units front have great views and we had lower level with fthe beach and pool virtually outside our door. Great views of Surfers and beyond. Apartments clean and comfy with all needs. In hot weather consider one with air conditioner. The hosts, Judy and Chris are very helpful and welcome you warmly. Will be back.

Room Tip: Lower levels offer a real feel of living with the beach at your front door. All rooms have sea views...

Well appointed apartment smack on the beach with the patrol swimming area just 50 -80 footsteps away from the back gate.Wonderful view of both the sea and the coastline from the balcony and if you are lucky like we did - you might sight the whales from the beach or your apartment during the whale season. Swimming pool was heated and is salt water - luvly to swim in without being worried of the sea condition. Judy and Chris, the managers will do all your bookings for free and are very welcoming. They help with all our needs - transfers, bookings and recommendations to suit our needs. For Muslims - halal restaurants-Indian, Turkish, Chinese, kebabs and burgers are abound along the street near Q1 just 5 mins away. Cavill mall for shopping and groceries at woolworths for ur needs are also just a short nice walk 5 mins away. Surf club with their $10 buffet breakfast is just 5 mins away too. Night markets are also 5 mins away every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. Bus stop is two blocks away at Markwell ave and you can call a cab thru the front desk during theIr working hours. Watch for cab fares though as a 3 km ride is approximately $14 to $16 which to foreigners like us is very pricey due to the exchange rates. Take the free shuttle to Carrara markets and robina town centre if u need to reach these places which bus stop and puck up is a short walk away. This is such a luvly place to have a wonderful holiday - luvly beach and so near to mall/shopping and food aplenty. Don't think twice- book and have a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor for better view.

I looked online at numerous accommodation options in Surfers Paradise and settled on One the Esplanade because I wanted to be right on the beach, up high with stunning views, in a modern apartment with a swimming pool. We were absolutely delighted with our choice! Swimming in the beach was just a hop down the steps and onto the sand. The pool was beautiful and heated to a tepid temperature. Dinner was only a 5 min walk away to Cavill Ave. Chris & Judy were very helpful all week. The rooms were large & spacious. I definitely recommend One The Esplanade.
