“Great, quiet location”
Reviewed 1 February 2011

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a week with 2 young kids.
Apartment is in a quite location, yet it is only a few minutes walk from the beach or main street.
Kids loved the pools, particularly the indoor one when the weather wasn't so nice.
Apartment itself was fine although ours was looking a little tired. Apartment had most of what you could need on a holiday but the iron seemed to have gone missing (thought that was a good excuse not to iron!). Also there was no grater in the kitchen, but we made do.
Overall we had a great stay!

We had a great time and the apartment was extremely comfortable. The indoor pool was a bonus specially because of the rains.

The surprise element for us was to have all the lovely restaurants at the door step, it was a bonus especially as we had a little one, also the beach is less than a 5 mins walk.

We would also like to thank Karl for his hospitality. He was very helpful & friendly .

Just spent 9 nights at Oscar on Main with family and 2 young children. Great spot right near the surf of Main Beach and the Tedder Ave shops and eateries. Large two bedroom apartment with plenty of space and TV's. Served as a base for theme parks, beach and shopping days, all within easy driving distance. Great spot at the best end of the Gold Coast!

We stayed at The Oscar for 7 nights for a family holiday on the Gold Coast. Main Beach is a quiet upmarket family area away from the chaos and rough crowds elsewhere on the Gold Coast.
Having 4 children, Mary rang us before our arrival to request sleeping arrangements for our children. This was greatly appreciated. We were able to have 3 kids in one room and our oldest child in a room on her own.
Our 3 brm apartment was very clean. My main concern when renting a holiday apartment is cleanliness. I hate sitting on sofas that feel and look grubby! Our apartment was just perfect. It had new, clean furniture. The views were amazing. The kitchen had plenty of everything we needed to cook with. We did Coles home delivery which was super handy and delivered to the door. However we also spent a lot of time at the many restaurants all within a few footsteps away on Tedder Avenue. The Surf Club at the beach was also good for a cheap meal. They all cater to family travellers with fabulous and healthy kids menus - restaurants in Sydney could learn a thing or two ! Tedder Avenue is a safe quiet friendly shopping strip that we happily sent our children out to on their own to buy ice-creams. Within a few days the shopkeepers knew us!
Our only small hickup was that our fridge broke down. Within a few hours of reporting that we had another replacement fridge delivered to our apartment. So the service was very efficient too!

Overall, I would highly recommend the Oscar on Main to people who are particular about location and standard of accommodation for a relaxing holiday in a super convenient location.

We always stay a Ocsar each year. Last year we decided to venture to another complex. After the first few hours we released this was a huge mistake, and called Mary at Oscars to rebook a room. Thank goodness one was available to make you weeks stay an enjoyable one and will not look anywhere else.

From the moment the friendly staff welcome you to the moment you leave Oscar's offers everything you want in an holiday. Clean, fresh modern rooms furnished with everything you could possible want, give it a homely feel. Clen pool, gym, yard and BBQ facilities entice you out to enjoy the weather. Tedder Avenue a stroll away offers all you could want in dining. Then equally as close by you've got the the Gold Coast number one attaction, a beautiful patrolled beach. To top things off there is the South Port life Saving Club with all that it has to offer. We had a ball.
