“had a great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

You get exactly what they tell you: very close to beach, town pubs and clubs etc. The room I stayed in, two beds and two baths, was really large and roomy, with very nice furnitshings. Nice and clean and well looked after as was the pool and bbq area. I found the manager, Brett, very friendly, and keen to help when needed. All in all we had a great time and will certainly be back

We were re locating from NSW to Gold Coast and found OceanCove...The place is greatly located, looked after and the surrounds are fantastic. Unfortunately new managers have taken over and everyone is commenting on the lack of friendliness...They were our only detterent.But if you are short term that wont affect you..If you get a choice, ask for Unit 2! It is newly tiles and the ground floor...Definately the pick of them all.

Room Tip: Unit 2 ground floor..Best unit in the resort...Fully tiled in all rooms exept bedrooms...well looked...

oceansidecove, Manager at Oceanside Cove Apartments, responded to this review, 8 March 2012
Great guests who were relocating from NSW and wanted long term accommodation while waiting for sale of their house. Very friendly family who got on with everyone at Resort. Unfortunately they snuck a cat into the apartment and it had kittens and we asked them to remove the cat and kittens as they were breaching our by-laws. The guests couldn't understand why they couldn't keep the cat and kittens and became agressive so they said that they would leave if they could not keep the cat and kittens in the apartment. We as Managers have a duty to our owners and the Body Corporate to uphold by-laws and we believe the review to be the guests reaction to the Managers doing their job and therefore very unfair to us and the resort.

We have stayed here 5 times in the last 3 years. The location is excellent- walk to beach & village shops & cafes. Easy access to motorway for other Gold Coast attractioins. Friendly staff. Pool & premises very nice. Interiors need a little updating but can't beat value for money. We find it hard to beat.

We couldn't have booked a better appartment the staff were great , the location great close (50 meters) to the beach , good local restaurants and the kids just loved the pool . After looking at maybe 50 places on the net all our concerns had disappeared as soon as we walked in the door .

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2008

The 3 bedroom apt we booked was clean and well furnished for a family stay (except for toiletries such as soap which was minimal).

When I booked, I asked about air-conditioning and was told that the apt was air-conditioned, but when we checked-in, we found that only the living room was air-conditioned. All 3 bedrooms only had ceiling fans, which was a letdown since we expected air-conditioning (especially important during these warm months).

It is right next to Gold Coast Highway, which is both good and bad. Good in that travelling to other areas of Gold Coast is convenient, and bad in that it can be noisy (especially since we had to open the windows as there was no air-conditioning in the bedrooms).

But overall, for the cost, I would say that it is value for money.

  • Liked — Value for money, well-furnished
  • Disliked — Noise and the lack of air-conditioning

This is the second time we have stayed at this accommodation and I think it is a great place to stay. Good value for money. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was quite spacious. There is an ensuite with a separate bathroom/laundry. We stayed in apartment 2 which had a nice large balcony that caught the sun up until around 3pm by which time we'd had enough of the sun for the day and enjoyed the shade. There is secure underground parking and a nice small heated pool which was never crouded. It is a stones throw from a nice beach.

For those expecting luxury, look elsewhere. Those wanting clean, comfortable self catering accommodation then we recommend this place. Yes, the carpets could do with an industrial clean (a little marked in some places) and the decor is probably about 10 years old, but it is excellent value for money in our eyes.

We choose this apartment complex through my partners work which has a discounted rate available with this property and it seemed to be in a handy location and a reasonable rate.

We found the owners really friendly (they are fellow kiwi's) and as we hadn't confirmed our arrival time they had left clear instructions at the complex for us.

The complex was obviously built a while ago (i.e. not a huge flash highrise apartment) but we found that it was really convenient and even timed it that the Burleigh Markets were on the day after we arrived which is held at the bottom of the street on the esplanade.

We found the location to be handy with Burleigh Heads township about a couple of minutes walk, the beach approx. 50-100m away and easy access to the main tourist routes with buses going practicaly past the front door regularly.

The esplanade at Burleigh Heads has an amazing array of exercise stations for people to use free of charge as well for those of you that are exercise orientated.
