It was by accident that I found this place. I booked and paid for other accommodation In Broadbeach in January 2014 for travel in July. I admit that I got a great deal $$, however one week prior to our holiday they contacted me to say that I was unable to stay with them as they overbooked (like I believe that one) and that they sourced alternative accommodation for us, and our good fortune was that it was OBR.
The photos online looked fantastic and they are pretty much how they appear in real life.
We had a two bedroom apartment, fully catered kitchen, laundry. The apartments are not serviced. When we arrived we did a shop at Woolworths and bought food plus laundry detergent, bathroom supplies, washing up stuff etc.
We were very impressed with the apartment!
The view. Uninterrupted view of ocean (there is a school right in front so no high rises)
Free and secure parking.
Great heated pool and spa till 9pm (the kids were in heaven, in the middle of winter)
Our bed was very comfy! King size.(may have been twins zipped together but I did not notice this)
The balcony was great. The kids ate breakfast there every morning.
The staff were very courteous and helpful. The Manager approached me one night when I was swimming with the kids at night and I expected that he might say something slightly negative, but he was lovely and wished us a good night.
There is a gorgeous BBQ area that we intended to use but didn't. Would be a lovely place to catch up with family or friends.
THe kids room had no window or view and had shutter type doors to the kitchen.
We had 3 kids and once the Rollaway bed was down there was no room to move in their room.
But the negatives are not really negatives, as the kids did not complain.
It is slightly out of the hub of Broadbeach which suited us, quiet, but not too far to walk to dinner.
We liked it so much that we have rebooked for 2015.
I don't know what we should have paid in 2014 (as we paid the other place) but I think the cost for 2015 will be reasonable.
