Gold Coast serviced apartments for a taste of the Sunshine State lifestyle

Whether you're coming for the sandy beaches, the theme parks or just the sunshine, feel at home with these Gold Coast serviced apartments for the perfect holiday in the Sunshine State.

A trip to the Gold Coast means beaches, bars and boogie boards, so you’ll want a comfortable place to retire to at the end of a sun-drenched day. That might be a penthouse with ocean views and private plunge pool, or a family-friendly apartment with on-site sauna and tennis court.

You can spend your days lounging by the pool, or indulge in some retail therapy at local boutique shops and beachfront markets. While at night, fire up the barbecue and make the most of Queensland’s famous fresh seafood or wander down the Esplanade for gold-class oceanfront dining and cocktails.

Theme parks, rainforests and national parks are all on your doorstep, too, if you want to plan a day out. Returning to your self-contained apartment, you’ll have the blissful feeling of being on holiday with the creature comforts of a home away from home.

Family-friendly holiday apartment on the Gold Coast

1/4

In the heart of Surfers Paradise, Palazzo Colonnades offers easy access to a dreamy stretch of sandy beach and the Nerang River. The tropical landscape continues around the pool, where holiday mode begins in the terracotta-tiled spa or on a sunlounger beneath a wide umbrella. Kids can keep busy in the on-site recreation room, where they’ll find table tennis, air hockey and arcade games.

In the evening, light up the communal barbecue for an alfresco family meal of fresh prawns and charred salad. Afterwards, it’s worth turning in early so you can wake in time to watch the sunrise over the ocean from your apartment’s private balcony. If you don’t fancy making brunch at home, head to the BMD Northcliffe Surf Club a few hundred metres away to tuck into bistro classics like salt and pepper calamari served up with sea views.

Child-friendly saltwater pool
