Double room in Surfers Paradise

Apartment - Private room · Surfers Paradise QLD, Australia, Surfers Paradise, QLD 4217, Australia

The Space

Hi there, thanks for stopping by and looking at my listing. I am fairly new to the area and used AirBnB to survive when I first arrived in Australia. I can honestly say, without that place to stay, my arrival and new start would have been a whole lot harder!! For that reason, I've decided to that my second bedroom would be perfect for other people to either holiday or begin their new adventure.

I have a double bed in a nice size room with plenty of storage space for you to sleep in whilst you need some respite from all that the Gold Coast has to offer. When you're done with sleeping, you can explore Sea World that is 2km away, or try out the Dream World, Movie World or Wet 'n' Wild theme parks a short bus ride away? If you're worn out by thinking about all of that, you could always just sit back and relax on my large balcony that overlooks Surfers Paradise beach.

I live in a two-bedroom apartment on a high floor overlooking the beach. Although you are right in the heart of the action, noise isn't an issue. I work full-time so I won't be under your feet and you'll have the place to yourself a lot. I will be around enough though to answer any questions you have. The apartment block I live in also has a good sized gym, sauna, steam room and both indoor and outdoor swimming
pools. The bus stop is directly outside the building so transport is no problem for exploring using public services. If you want to know more about the building, have a look at the website of "Mantra" with the building name "Circle On Cavill".

A bit about me, I'm an English guy who is polite, clean and tidy. Whilst you stay with me, all I ask is that you respect my home but make it your home away from home too. If you would like to know any more, please just e-mail and I'll do my best to answer your questions in as much detail as I can.

Please note, this listing is for the room with the bed with blue bedding in the pictures. My listing for the other bedroom is listed under the heading "Luxury room, overlooking the beach".

  • David is an excellent host. His place is right in the middle of Surfers. The balcony is breezy and faces the ocean, great view. The house was clean and we found everything we needed that you would expect in a typical household such as iron, kitchen appliances etc. Lets just say Airbnb makes money because of people like David.
    Thanks again mate, if you ever drop by Canberra (I doubt you will) give me a yell and I'll show you around.
    Cheers

  • David is a great host. He was always in contact if we had any queries. We couldn't ask for a better place. Right in the heart of surfers paradise.awesome view. Buses oposite the hotel take you to all the theme parks which was really handy. Would definately come again!

  • David was friendly and helpful. He arranged for a friend to meet me as he was working when I arrived. Everything went smoothly. I didn't see much of him during the week I stayed in his apartment as he works long hours. His apartment is perfectly located in the middle of everything. It is only a five minute walk up the main pedestrian street to the beach, directly about a large supermarket and has numerous restaurants and other shops in the immediate vicinity. The apartment was clean and tidy and had everything I needed for a great week of relaxation.

  • Dave has an great apartment on the 36th floor with an amazing view, Cavill is one the best place to stay if you go to the GC, pretty luxurious with lots of facilities. The apartment is clean and spacious. We stayed there for a week as we were looking to rent our own flat. Dave did everything to make us feel at home, he works a lot so we didn't see him often, but everytime we did he was nice and helpful.

  • David's apartment is great. The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, the view is wonderful. I felt like I was in a luxurious hotel. It is close to everything and if you do not want to go out, David has a good DVD collection. Most of the time I had the apartment for me alone, because David had to work a lot. But he helped me always when I needed it...even when my next airBnB host made a cancellation on the day of arrival. Thank you very much, Dave :)

  • Clean and cosy apartment located less than 10mins from one of the delectable beaches of the Gold Coast. Especially loved the amazing sea view from the balcony. Supermarket, pharmacy and restaurants are conveniently located at the concourse as well. Dave was very helpful with the information he provided pre-trip about his apartment, and we did not have much of a problem getting there and around the area. Very contented with my short stay, highly recommended! (:

  • I was extremely comfortable in David's apartment, in fact to me it was luxurious. The place is extremely tidy and clean, very tastefully decorated and has a fantastic view, day or night.

    The room is small and cozy, with just enough room around the bed to get around but not much more. There is ample storage space in the cupboards and only a single spare power socket (excluding the one for the table lamp) so visitors should bring their own power boards if they have lots to charge.

    The bed is very comfortable and the mattress is on the softer side. Iron, ironing board and hair blow dryer available for ladies.

    David is very easy to get along with and we had a good conversation on my last night there. I was hardly in most of my stay so we didn't get much chance to chat much.

    There is a Woolworths for groceries and a pharmacy right downstairs, so it's so convenient. There are also frequent buses on Ferny Avenue, the beach is a skip and hop away.

    I'm sure visitors will find this to be a fantastic stay for the price. Would definitely love to stay here again if I come back to the Gold Coast!

  • We had a great time in Gold coast staying at Dave's place.
    The apartment was tidy and clean and and it has ocean view.
    The bed is comfy and the water pressure was good.
    There are swimming pools, sauna, steam room,cinema and game room available to guests.

    Bus stop is just across the street on Ferny Avenue which has service to most of the Gold Coast major attraction.
    Q1 (website hidden)oint is just 10 minutes walk.
    The other exit is surrounded by restaurant and bars.
    Supermarket is just next to the building and beach is just less than 10 minutes walk.

    On the way to the beach you may find Centro Mall, Ripley's believe it or not,etc..
    On some of the night, there will be Surfer Paradise night market which hold by the locals.

    Dave is really a nice host. You may ask him some clue on what to do and what to eat nearby the area.
    We will definitely stay at Dave's again when we come back to Gold Coast. Thanks Dave :))

    Till we see you again!
