When you’re planning a weekend away, family vacation or business trip on the Gold Coast, there is a good range of accommodation types to choose from. From caravan parks to one of the most luxurious – and expensive – hotels in the world, there’s something perfect for you.
What we are seeing, however, is a move away from traditional hotels. More and more holidaymakers are looking for Gold Coast apartments for rent.
This makes sense, as it is now possible to book an entire apartment for pretty much the same price as some hotel rooms, and the difference is clear.
Two-Bedroom Resort Apartment
Let’s take family apartments Gold Coast as an example. You could book a family room at a motel or hotel, or even two adjoining rooms. Or you could book a two-bedroom resort apartment and get even more bang for your buck.
A two-bedroom apartment at, for example, the Phoenician Resort, will give you a private master suite with its own bathroom, plus a twin-bedded room, a second bathroom, and a separate living and dining area – with a sofa bed.
Naturally there are all the inclusions you’d expect, like air-conditioning, cable TV, WiFi, linen, washer and dryer, and more. And there are also some standout extras, such as a fully equipped kitchen. That’s so much more than you’d get at a motel!
Fantastic Resort Facilities
Family apartments Gold Coast also offer fantastic resort facilities. This resort has not one but TWO swimming pools – indoor and outdoor, sauna, spa, gymnasium, barbecue and entertainment areas, games room, and so much more.
And how about location? For families, a resort like the Phoenician is magical, being just footsteps from the safe, sandy beach.
However, it’s equally attractive to business travellers, as it’s centrally placed, and just a short stroll from the Gold Coast Convention Centre.
Chic Cafes And Gourmet Restaurants
Couples love the resort accommodation because it offers such peace and privacy, yet is within easy walking distance of chic cafes and gourmet restaurants, clubs and wine bars, and the famous Jupiters Casino.
When you look at the variety of Gold Coast apartments for rent, you’ll notice they are well spread out along the Gold Coast. Many can be found in Surfers Paradise, the Gold Coast’s most famous centre.
Surfers Paradise is party central, and a firm favourite with schoolies! But it’s not for everyone. For families with young children, and couples seeking a romantic getaway, Broadbeach is definitely the best choice.
Affordable And Sophisticated
Somehow managing to blend its original charm with all the mod cons and facilities you’d expect, Broadbeach is both affordable and sophisticated.
It’s just perfect for those who wish to leave the car at home, or parked securely at the resort, and walk to the cars and restaurants.
Broadbeach offers so many great Gold Coast activities, with so many based on or around the water. For Broadbeach not only has two gorgeous beaches, but also around 270km of navigable waterways.
Best Accommodation And Activities
The canal system is one of the best places you’ll find to practice your standup paddle boarding skills, or be at one with nature is a kayak. Or perhaps a sunset cruise is more your style.
For those who enjoy a bigger hit of adrenalin, there are jet boat rides, jet-skiing, deep sea fishing and scuba diving, or perhaps a surf lesson or three.
When you look at the amazing accommodation, facilities, location and activities, you’ll see the best Gold Coast apartments for rent are in Broadbeach.
