Why Julia Cardillo chose Surfers Paradise
It's all about location location location. This is absolute beachfront and there's nothing better than to get up first thing in the morning and go for a quick swim or a relaxing walk along the beach hand in hand with your loved one!

Great stay with a couple caveats
Location and view! This place might have the best view of any place I've ever stayed. You're right on top of the ocean and the crashing waves lull you to sleep every night. The location is also amazing and an easy walk Surfer's Paradise. We ate most of our meals at BMD Surf Club which is just two blocks down.
The apartment itself if very modern and quite nice. There are a couple caveats.
1. The master bedroom is all the way in the back and gets lots of street noise and garbage pick up noise. Because it's all the way in back and there is no central AC, you have to sleep with the windows open. I had to use ear plugs most nights to block the street noise.
2. One of the bathrooms has a bizarre 5 cm step up going into it. We repeatedly banged our toes entering the room which is quite distracting in the middle of the night.
3. Julia was away during our stay, so this isn't likely an issue. Her stand in, Rick, didn't explain how anything worked. The induction stove top could have used some instructions. I've used one before, but the user interface on this stove top was bizarre.
4. The elevator for the building is also really bizarre. It lets you off a 1/2 flight of stairs below the apartments on all floors. Wouldn't have been a big issue, but my wife's knee got torn up on a hike. Also made it hard to get bags in the first day.
I used the word "bizarre" a lot in this review, but we really had a good time.
Hi Jeffrey, thanks for your review, I'm so glad you had a good time.
Its a shame you didn't bring any of these issues up when I emailed you during your stay. As you know there were 2 large tower fans in the bedrooms to push the air conditioning down from the lounge room, we have only ever needed the ceiling fans which are more than adequate. The bizarre step is normal for bathrooms in Australia. I remember giving you the instructions for the induction, you just needed to put the pot on the stove to make it work. As its a boutique block of 8 units, I am very grateful to have a lift at all, it's certainly helped us with luggage in the past. You were a great guest and would welcome you back again.
Stunning view. Genuine on the beach location.
Modern, clean and well presented renovated apartment. The bedrooms get a fair bit of road noise with the windows open. Ducted air conditioning isn't available (or possible) and you want sea breeze to flow in summer. Only reason missed out on 5 stars.
The building outdated but apartment recently renovated & offering direct beach access
Stayed for a total of 10 days which passed far too quickly. Whilst main building is older & could use some love, our apartment was recently renovated offering everything we needed. 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Apartment was clean and well furnished. Direct access to the beach was one of the highlights. Didn't do a lot of swimming as the bluebottles were out en masse but many long walks along the beach. Northcliffe Surf Club 3 doors down & lifeguards directly in front of our building each day. Location was great, easy walk to Surfers Paradise and able to walk to Broadbeach as well. Would recommend.
Thanks Anita for your lovely review. We are truely blessed with the location, it’s pretty spactacular being right on the beach and the sunrises are amazing. I’m working with the body corporate on getting the building updated. If you’re ever on the Gold Coast next please don’t hesitate to call as I’d love to host you again.
Stunning views, modern apartment
Our stay at Julia's apartment was more than we could of asked for. Julia went above and beyond to look after us, and was always avaliable to help us out. The apartment is really beautiful, and exceeded our expectations.
Thanks so much Rebecka for your lovely review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and we could help you in every way we could. If you are ever on the Gold Coast again, I would be more than happy to host you again.
Location is central to everything and loved waking up to stunning beach views!
Thanks Mallory, we are truly blessed with the location and views of the unit.
Amazing location, beautiful apartment
The location was great, and the apartment is beautiful with all the facilities needed for cooking if you decide to. The photo of the beach are accurate, it is right in front of the apartment. We loved being able to open the family/dining room to the balcony. Loved having two bathrooms, a washer and dryer. Plenty of space. Julia was very easy to contact. We’d stay again.
