We booked our 2 week stay here in a 3 bedroom, whole floor apartment over Dec/Jan. The view when walking from the lift which opened directly into our unit was spectacular! 200 degrees of nothing but water, beach and sunshine visible in the floor to ceiling glass with the balcony matching. The unit was beautiful, well furnished with nice amenities...

We stayed for 2 weeks in Jan 2017. The position was great being across the road from the beach and a 10 minute walk to Tedder Ave restaurants and shops. We also had, as do all the units, a great view of the beach. Management were very helpful in attending very promptly to a couple of issues but also, and...

We booked a night accommodation here on our way to Brisbane. Upon check in, we were awed by the sight of the sandy white beach and the vast ocean views. You could hear the waves crashing on shores and it sounded like music to our ears. The apartment is meticulously decorated with the whole kitchen fully equipped for a big...

My friends and I took a road trip to G.C over the New Year Holiday and decided The Waterford as our main residence. Indeed, it was one of the best holidays we have ever had and a large aspect was due to the fact that we felt so at ease and comfortable whilst staying at the waterford. Ross & Lily...

Went to the waterford for a holiday with the Mrs, and it was just perfect. As you will see on the other reviews the view is just perfect, you can see the beach and the city and waking up to the sound of the sea is awesome. The apartment itself was great, kitchen and living area were great, with 2...

We arrived at the unit for a 6 night stay. Beautiful view but not overly impressed with the cleanliness of the unit itself. Floors that looked like they hadn't been cleaned, dirty drip marks on the side of the kitchen bench, dirty shower doors, dust and lint particles under the beds. We weren't going to say anything about the cleanliness...

Dear Kate, Thank you for your review. Please let me put a few things in order for other readers. On the afternoon of their 6th night one of our new elevator doors jamed open a little at the basement level. I had inspected it and within a couple of minutes was on the phone for a technician.
