“From the ONE on ESPLANADE and the sandy shores of surface paradise below we truly found our paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2010

This was the best of our 62 day trek around Australia starting from Melbourne. After enjoying the east coast down south from cape tribulation, Cairns, Townswill, Frazer Island, Noosa we stopped at ONE on the ESPLANADE at Surface Paradise and booked apartment 13 on 5th floor with endless view over the Surface paradise beach. The nights sleeping with the open windows to the balcony with the gentle sea breeze caressing our bodies like sublime symphony from sea waves splashing the sandy shores of surface paradise below we truly found our paradise. Also it was the position of ONE on the Esplanade close to many international restaurants, romantic evenings within excellent surroundings.
ThakYOU Judy & Chris

The apartment is located at the quiet end of the road but yet only 5 mins walk from the bustling Surfers Paradise shopping district. With direct access to the beach via the side-gate, its location is simply great.

The room is spacious, clean, well appointed and comes with a balcony with awesome view of the sea and sunrise.

My request to fix a bulb in the room was attended to by Chris immediately - thumbs up!

The view is awesome! Best view in town, both from the front balcony and the master bedroom! Space wise, it's definitely comfortable for a family of 4 - 5, we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit on level 15. The place is so new and well maintained!
Our children loved the direct access to the beach. The only regret we had was we didn't have time to enjoy the barbecue facilities during our stay. But it's definitely in our plans for our next stay there! Yes, we are going back for sure!
The apartment is very centrally located, with restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Yet it is away from all the noise.
Thanks a million to Judy and Chris for helping us plan and book the tours and transport. We basically just told them what we would like to do during our stay and left them to plan and arrange everything for us. They were just amazing!

Absolute beachfront apartments on Surfers Paradise...not even a road to walk across ! Very handy to the heart of the town with the apartments looking right over the beach...surf patrol at our door step too....perfecto.Spacious, clean, easy and secure parking. Immaculate grounds and pool area.
And the other best bit.....the most ideal hosts you could ask for. Chris and Judy were simply excellent. Nothing was too much trouble...always a friendly wave and smile as we came and went.
I would not stay anywhere else in Surfers Paradise ....you will not be disappointed.

Location ideal. Close to the centre but still quiet. Sound of the waves beautiful.
Views stunning. Hosts friendly and informative.
Apartment spotlessly clean, modern and lovely (stayed in #22)
When the tide got too rough with the kids, we turned to the pool.
Highly recommend.
I chose this place because of it's reviews here and I was not disappointed.

I searched and searched the internet for a nice, clean motel for a few weeks. And I found only a couple of reviews on one the esplanade and we definetly were not disapointed. It is such a nice motel, the owners are friendly and the view was breathtaking. Its close to Cavill Ave and right on the beach. The apartment is modern and everything worked. Everything you could possibly ask for!!! We will be returning!! Two thumbs up!

I spent weeks researching the best accommodation option for our 4 day vacation, looking for a great combination of quite location, absolute beach frontage, close proximity to good restaurants and not too far away from the shopping. One The Esplanade won out on value for money and location, and it totally lived up to expectations. The apartments were large, clean and very well equipped. The views up the beach from the balcony were wonderful. A patrolled beach was directly accessed from the property, so the pool, although it looked very inviting, didn't get any use from us at all. The hosts, Judy and Chris, were fabulous - they arranged convenient transfer from the airport for us on our arrival, and gave us a personal transfer to the airport on our departure - its friendly hosts like this that make a vacation much more special . They happily provided excellent recommendations for local eateries. The Northcliffe Surf Club for breakfast is brilliant - great modern food along with great views of fit healthy people enjoying the sun and surf. Chilli on Tedder (Mainbeach) was also excellent for dinner. We would highly recommend One the Esplanade - ideal location, great hosts, clean and well equipped apartments. Couldn't ask for more.
