“Best Apartments in Coolangatta”

“We have stayed in many apartments at Coolangatta, however Bayview Apartments at Rainbow Bay are by far the best. The location opposite Rainbow Bay and Snapper Rocks surf break is fabulous and the setup for surfers is excellent.

Downstairs in the garage is a shower and change room and surfers are able to leave their boards in a personal lockup. The apartments themselves are extremely spacious and there are only two apartments per floor. The two bedrooms (one with en-suite) overlook the Tweed River and mountains to the west and there is a small balcony. The living and dining areas are large with beautiful furniture, huge television and views over the beach.

These rooms lead onto a large balcony with an outside setting. The kitchen had everything we needed from ice-making machine to dishwasher. At the back of the apartments is access to a laneway leading to shops at Rainbow Bay in one direction and Twin Towns and Coolangatta in the other. There is also a pool, sauna and games room. Looking forward to our return visit.”

“Stunning views and perfect location”

“This was our first time staying at Bayview Apartments, it had been recommended to us to stay there from several different people so we thought we would try it out.

Check in & out process was so easy , we opened the door to our apartment and all of us said wow, look at the view. Such a beautiful location and with the large balcony and lots of windows we could see the whales from our apartment.

Easy walking paths to take you everywhere you want to go. We loved it so much we rebooked to come back again. Nothing like waking up to watching snapper rocks waves to start your day off right.

Jacinta was extremely helpful with advice too when our daughter was unwell so the hosts are very welcoming and always happy to see you. Thanks for an enjoyable week and see you in November.”

“We’ll keep coming back”

“Third time we’ve stayed in this apartment block at Rainbow Bay – so I guess that says something pretty positive. As always – spectacular views from our floor: west, north, east and south.

We always take a two bed unit – half a floor and three balconies (it gives us room to sprawl). Secure underground, numbered car spaces are great. The beach across the road is perfect for swimming with very easy access, clean sand and very safe patrolled waters. There are cafes and restaurants in all directions.

It’s the perfect spot for watching whales too. They head-on down from Surfers – then make an easterly turn right in front of you and then sweep around Snapper rocks as they head south. At times we could see up to 20 whales at once – without barely turning our heads.”

“Perfect place to stay”

“Our apartment on the 12th floor was brilliant, the view over Rainbow Bay and Snapper Rocks is amazing (and we could even see whales!!) and it was clean and had all the amenities you would expect.

The pool is beautiful and deep and the spa nice and warm. The secure individual storage units for each apartment in the basement are large and super convenient to store surfboards and other beach equipment.

The managers Jacinta and Jason were fantastic and went to a lot of effort to help us with some special requests.”

“Can’t wait to return”

“We have just returned from another fabulous holiday at our family favorite beach Rainbow Bay. After sampling various accommodation in the area we decided to try Bayview Apartments.

The managers are friendly and willing to help with any request and kept the building looking great. The facilities included a full size tennis court, pool, spa, Sauna and undercover BBQ area. The unit we were staying in was on the 6th floor and whilst not refurbished it was very clean with a good set of appliances, comfortable furnishing and the most amazing view of the beach and park adjacent the building.

Overall with consideration for the price, location and our experience we have re-booked to stay next year.”

“7 Days of Sun, Surf & Sand”

“The location was fantastic, awesome views!!  Quick walk to the beach and nearby shops and restaurants. Fully self contained apartment offering everything you need. Would definitely stay here again next time we are at the Gold Coast.”

Little Bit of Paradise”

“Bayview has a nice ‘feel’ to it. I stayed here for 5 nights in total and found it to be exactly what I wanted, which is affordable, close to the beach and only 5 minutes to great cafes and restaurants. My apartment was clean and comfortable, great size balcony, free wifi, heated spa and lovely pool area, this is value for money. There are beach markets close by on Sunday mornings.”

“This was a good choice”

“Great value for money, comfortable, clean, everything in the apartment you need for short time, stayed one week. Helpful and very friendly staff in the office.   Grounds are meticulously maintained.

Great holiday.  Park the car and walk to everything!”

“Best Location on the Gold Coast”

“We spent a most relaxing and enjoyable twelve days at these beautiful and excellently located  apartments in early May.

We could fault nothing at all – apartment great with everything you could want, very good eating locations within walking distance, beautiful beaches in Rainbow Bay and Greenmount at the front door.  And the best thing is that it’s no where near Surfers Paradise!

One caveat – don’t trust the benign looking left hand end of the Rainbow Bay beach.  A closer than wanted adventure with the rocks near there led to several scrapes and scratches.  Stick to “swimming between the flags”!

The managers Jacinta and Jason were extremely helpful with all our requests and made our stay extra special.  We have already booked in for May 2020 and can’t wait to go.”
