COVID-19 Pandemic & This Website
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.
Travel Information for Queensland Visitors - Queensland Tourist Safety Information - regularly updated, official website.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.

Hotels Better Than Apartments?
Apartments are not always a better option than hotels especially when it comes to some of the service aspects of staying in a hotel such as room service or room servicing.
I wouldn't let this put me off choosing an apartment. I love hotels, but when travelling with my kids I love the freedom a 2 bedroom apartment affords us all. Paying to get a more frequent service rather than a weekly one makes it more like a holiday for me too!
We love the flexibility of being able to make some of our own food and eat out a some of the better restaurants and also being able to throw on a load of washing especially those sandy towels and beach clothes!
For our family holidays I often find apartments better than hotels and that is probably even more the case on the Gold Coast as there are so many options for apartment.
