Q1 Surfers Paradise Beach Lux Apt

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Hamilton Avenue, Surfers Paradise, QLD 4217, Australia

This modern 1 bed spacious apartment is two blocks from Surfers Paradise and 150m from the "world's best beach." You have access to the 4.5 star Q1 resort facilities for 3 star(or less)prices, close to all public and commercial transport services.

The Space

The Gold Coast Light Rail commences services mid-June 2014. There is a STOP right outside Q1. From there you will be able to jump on and travel in comfort and at speed, without any parking hassles or RBT worries to either Southport in the north or down to the Convention centre, Casino or Pacific Fair (see my Guest Book) for extremely reasonable ticket prices. So before you hire a car, just ask me for more details. Happy to share!

George says "book early and book often!"

I value ALL my previous Guests and will offer them the BEST rates, but you must get in quick!

What is on offer, is simply incomparable with any other Q1 or Gold Coast similar sized apartment.

Just view very carefully BOTH the pictures (which as they say, offer "a thousand words" AND the magnificent and generous first hand comments of those wonderful Guests whom I have had the pleasure to host.

Not only my Guest Reviews, but check out my Visitors Book entries AND the comments on my Customer Feedback forms. Which I have posted with all my photos.Enjoy! and thanks again to those Guests who have left such generous comments.

Ok, so what about the apartment?

This large (84sq m), modern, low floor (5th), ocean view, one bedroom apartment with spa bath, has been lovingly refurbished and maintained.

Similar apartments have tired, or smelly, dirty and worn out and shabby furniture (according to Trip Advisor comments).

This apartment has everything you want for short, or long stays, comfortable for 2 non-smoking adults.

In addition to the Queen bed in the main bed room, there is a sofa bed in the living area with double inner spring mattress is suitable for an extra adult (or 2), or small children (2-3), for a minimal linen charge.

Just see the pix and also the main bed can be re-configured into twin beds, for a nominal additional linen fee.

YES, there is FREE undercover secure parking!!

The unit is fully self contained with a fully appointed kitchen and laundry. Linen and towels are supplied and the kitchen is well set up with crockery, cutlery, kettle, toaster, fry pan and saucepans.

As well as the laundry with a top loading Fisher and Paykel washing machine and dryer (just see the pix). There is also an iron, TWO by ironing boards and clothes drying rack.... the list goes on!

The apartment is fully air conditioned with refreshing cool air for hot summer nights AND heating for those rare cool chilly nights in winter.

Added complimentary extras include teas, coffees, water, milk, sun screen, insect repellent, first aid kit AND a 3D large screen main TV in the lounge.

There is also an LCD TV in the bedroom PLUS a small DVD library with a wide selection of genres.

Just look at all the pix and positive Reviews on the listing to see what is offered and also ALL the features of the apartment captured on those images.

I ask you to simply compare, very carefully what others offer AND the Reviews, OR lack of, which tells you immediately what is available, or not!

This includes the genuine, first hand Guest comments in my Visitors Book. Not the fabricated or cut and pasted ones!!

My apartment INCLUDES, at no extra cost, Beach towels, as well as fresh clean towels (not worn out, tired and thin) and full linen set.

ALL of this is provided as part of your one payment, all inclusive, accommodation fee.

I also replace ALL of these (towels and linen) on the 7th day of your stay, for FREE.

Pricing for extended stays i.e. longer than five days, are available on request.

Q1 is located in central Surfers, close to the Beach and all main transport/road laterals, with easy access to public transport, hire cars and the restaurant/entertainment precinct.

Just view it on (website hidden) Maps and see for yourself, just how close you are to the beach and ALL amenities, facilities, restaurants, entertainment precinct and night clubs!

If in doubt, check out very carefully all my photos, reviews and (website hidden) Maps, then compare them all to what others offer.

Do the numbers, do your homework, see what Trip Advisor and other Reviews (or LACK of) tells you in the "casino" of other accommodation providers and hosts.

I promise you a full house of quality options, inclusions and service, as the OWNER and personal HOST. Not an employee nor "manager" of a property that is mine and not someone else's.

All I ask is that you read, accept and comply with my House Rules, Terms and Conditions.

For that, you will get not only what you paid for, but much much more! I let my Reviews and Guest Comments speak for themselves.

Go ahead, read all of those, then book it and enjoy!

BTW, this is my ONLY holiday let property, so I can invest all this energy, as I am not spread over any other properties. Not like other "hosts".

Caveat Emptor! The buyer beware...

Make sure you know who you are dealing with and what really is on offer for the price that is being asked.

Are they the OWNER Host, or just a manager?

There is a BIG difference and you can tell. Just look for the Reviews, or lack thereof.

Guest Access


I only accept bookings from Guests who have verified ID registered with airbnb (green circle ticked on your listing) and provided a nice clear picture (like mine).

Also favourable Reviews of you as a Guest will certainly be considered when discussing best rate for your stay.

3rd Party Bookings will NOT be accepted i.e. YOU must be the Guest who is doing the booking, registered on airbnb and will be staying in the apartment for the dates requested.

You are NOT to book on behalf of anyone else, if you have no intention of staying in the property.

Similarly, if you book and pay for two Guests and then have extras arrive without advising airbnb or me, the full adult rate for an extra Guest will immediately apply and must be paid in full prior to check in.

Any non-disclosure will result in possible cancellation of the booking and no refund provided i.e. if on Check In the ID of the person checking in does not match the verified airbnb ID of the person who made the booking, the accommodation will be withdrawn and access denied.

If extra Guests are found to be staying without approval or payment, the booking will be terminated and all guests evicted.

No refunds will be given for false booking or non-disclosure e.g. two guests booked, extra guest/s staying in apartment without Host knowledge nor approval.

AMENITIES: You have your own spa bath and amenities within the apartment, with unrestricted access to the onsite resort facilities such as all the pools (3), communal spa, male and female sauna and steam rooms adjoining a fully appointed gym, shared with other resort Guests.

Interaction with Guests

Email or phone contact to seek a quote and receive full written confirmation and invoicing. Check in time is between 2pm and 5pm (variation to these times may be requested but charges can apply outside of these times). I will meet and greet you on arrival or make arrangements around your arrival and booking. Check out time is now 10am , with later time available on request. Any time after 12 noon will attract additional fees e.g. 1/2 day rate applied if after 3pm. I will generally be available by txt or phone, and located only two blocks away, if required.

The Neighborhood

I grew up and have lived in the area since 1967 and love the Gold Coast passionately, with surfers paradise being the dynamic and energetic heart of the region. With the best beaches right on the doorstep of a vibrant shopping and entertainment precinct with comprehensive tourist services and information all readily available for the duration of your stay. There is a huge variety of eateries within the precinct, accommodating every budget from back packer to fine dining. All within walking distance of Q1. Both night and day offers a variety of experiences, including the regular night markets every Wednesday and Friday night along the Surfers beach front. Dine on the river or overlooking the beach, at either the local Surf Clubs or commercial premises. See all the pix on the listing for Q1 facilities and proximity to the beach!

Getting around

Free undercover secure parking is available for your vehicle and there is readily accessible hire car, limousine or bus services, including regular public bus transport servicing the precinct, both locally and to both Coolangatta and Brisbane airport (via train). An outline of access to Q1 via these services is given elsewhere on this listing.

Other Things to Note

Just go to Surfers Paradise, Queensland to find out more about the climate, temperatures, seasons, and other information which the region offers.

Internet access: There is NO internet offered by the host. However, the Resort does provide both a limited free wi-fi hotspot in the Lobby and is accessible in the apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband, daughter and I had a great short stay in George's apartment in Q1. George was the perfect host. We had left booking an Easter getaway until the last minute and George went out of his way to accomodate us. The apartment was immaculate, had a great view and very central. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to our friends. Another airbnb success story!

    April 2014
  • Kia Ora, we spent four days at Georges beautiful apartment. First time we have used airbnb and it surpassed our expectations. The apartment was amazing. We were welcomed by Georges friendly smile and he hand delivered us to the door, along with personally showing us where to park our car and the short cuts! The apartment was larger than expected (which never happens), great facilities and can't beat the location. George has thought of everything and after a day out and about we look forward to 'going home'

    Response from George:

    Thanks Teah & George. You were a pleasure to host & my Review of your stay reflects all the top ratings for airbnb. I look forward to having you return anytime & would not hesitate recommending you as a Guest to any Host.Tell your friends & come back soon! Thanks, George

  • My best friend & I decided to head to the Gold Coast last minute and struggled to find accommodation, I contacted George on the Friday and he was extremely quick at responding. I'd never used this site before so I was hesitant and my initial thoughts were this is too good to be true. When we arrived on the Wednesday... (Late I must add) George was a graceful host, he met us at the concierge desk & took us up to his amazing apartment. My first words were, this apartment is gorgeous, clean, everything looks brand new & smells Devine. George went on to recommend some great places we should visit & gave us a complete attractions list. Very helpful. We had everything we could possibly need including, wash machine, washing powder & softener, beach towels, boogie board, hair dryer, shampoo & condition (good stuff too, I must add). He even has an awesome music & DVD collection to enjoy on your stay. This accommodation is exceptional & very well worth every dollar. Thank you George!!

    January 2014
  • We stayed for almost 2 weeks and had a fabulous time. George looked after us big time making sure everything was perfect and the place was amazing and immaculate. Pool was awesome and faultless location all round. highly recommended on all accounts!

    January 2014
  • We had such a great stay in George's apartment! It has been very well maintained and it is extremely clean. We had everything we needed, George has really thought of everything! We were also very impressed by the amount of guest information and pamphlets on Gold Coast activities!

    George was very helpful in the booking process and is such a lovely host - he really made us feel comfortable and made sure we knew everything we needed to know about staying in the Q1 building.
    I would highly recommend staying in this apartment. We have a new favourite place to stay when we visit the Gold Coast.

    December 2013
  • Highly recommend George and the lovely apartment in Q1. George answered all queries prior to our arrival and was even able to assist in getting boxes of stock for our conference to the hotel beforehand. The apartment complex is magic so we could even do some laps in the pool before jumping into the sauna .. hah - holiday and conference all rolled into one!!
    The Apartment had everything we needed, and as two single people, we used the sofa bed which was as comfortable as a normal bed. THANKYOU George for your hospitality, knowledge, assistance and of course for having such a wonderful apartment .. we know EXACTLY where we will be staying for all future trips to the Gold Coast ... and only a 2 minute walk to dive into the ocean ... has everything you could possibly need. You are indeed a SUPER host :-)

    Response from George:

    Hey Nikki, absolute pleasure to host you and thankyou for not only being such a great Guest, but also for your flattering review. We try our best and Guests like you make every effort worthwhile. Tell your friends and I look forward to having you back on the Gold Coat, perhaps not around Schoolies nor impeded by "work."
    Best Wishes, George
