We stayed at Oceanside resort for a week in November, and only ever thought to book so far from surfers in order to avoid the schoolies whom were there at the time. Best decision we ever made! We will definitely be staying here everytime from now on.

the apartment was beautiful. Very spacious, with everything we needed for the whole week,, it had the most beautiful views from the balcony and master bedroom, was modern, extremely clean and very comfortable. our stay was super relaxed, with the beach at our doorstep (literally).

the (less mobile) grandparents were able to sit in the garden area downstairs just metres from the sand and watch while we built sandcastles and played in the waves with our toddler. the heated pool was beautiful, and there was a great outdoor bbq area at our disposal.

Glen and Karen were amazing. Always ready to help, and very accommodating. Our flight out got cancelled at the last minute on a stormy night, and Glen came, picked us up, let us spend the night, and even moved us to our next motel the morning after (he was booked out). By far the best service we've received anywhere - and we travel a lot!

We would go back just for the service factor, but the truth is this place really does have it all. if you don't mind driving a little to get to the big attractions, or just want a relaxing holiday away from the buzz - this is definitely it!

We had such a fantastic stay with Oceanside Resort. Glen & Karen are such lovely hosts, the apartments are great, the views are spectacular, the beach is gorgeous & the heated pool & spa so relaxing! Falling asleep every night to the sound of the ocean waves was wonderful! You are a stones throw from the beach. Everything you need is on your doorstep. Its the perfect place to get away with the whole family, with a group of friends or for a romantic holiday for 2. And it is great value for money! Our kids had a ball & so did we! Thanks so much Glen & Karen we will definately be back to see you guys hopefully sooner rather than later! Tina, Rolly, Connor & Lacey B

Room Tip: North facing apartments give you spectacular views up to Surfers Paradise & overlook the pool & spa. If you want the best views I would suggest staying from the 2nd or 3rd floor up but I dont think it really matters where you stay at Oceanside its great all round!

Following our previous trip to Gold Coast...we decided that while we loved the place; we did not want the crowds of Surfers, Broadbeach etc...A friend recommended Oceanside Resort at Bilinga. We booked a 2 BR self contained beach facing unit on the 3rd floor and had the best weekend of our lives. The unit was right in front of the beach (no roads) with uninterrupted views both North and south. Th environment was peaceful (away from the rowdy nightlife of surfers). Best of all the place is only 5 minutes from Gold Coast airport. We now plan to re-book the same unit every year. If you are looking for a quite getaway with views to die for at a peaceful beachfront place...this is where to stay. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Pick the 2 BR unit (beach facing)..we had the one floor 3. LOve the heated pool..although you wouldn't want to leave the beach.

We have stayed at Oceanside Resort several times over the past 10 years. The setting and layout is five star with stunning views from your balcony. The apartment we stayed in recently was clean and equipped with most of the things we needed. For budget accommodation, this is good value for money. Glenn is always affable and helpful. However, our unit was beginning to look tired and in need of some tlc. We were short of items such as oven mitts, clothes pegs, sink plugs, mop/broom, scissors and tea towels. As frequent travelers, we were also surprised to be asked to pay extra for wifi and it was a disappointment, having purchased it, getting such poor reception most of the time.

We stayed at the property for two weeks over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed it. We have two young boys who loved the pool and spa. The pool is solar heated which makes it so much more enjoyable and useable. There are good BBQ facilities and the proximity to the beach was a key factor in making our holiday so easy. No roads to cross or carrying heavy bags jammed with beach paraphernalia, as you simply walk on to the sand from (almost) the back door. The beach is patrolled about 150 metres up. The managers, Glen and Karen are so helpful and lovely, nothing is a problem. I was initially worried about air traffic noise being so close to the airport, but I can honestly say, it was not a problem. The sound of the crashing waves is so beautifully loud you don't hear much else. We found the atmosphere very relaxed and friendly.

Room Tip: The two bedroom apartments on the north side give you great views up to Surfers Paradise from about level 2. We had room 11.
