Fully stocked kitchen can reduce holiday costs by cooking meals. Has 2 bedrooms and bathrooms to give family plenty of space. Brilliant having washing machine and dryer so you don't have to take dirty clothes home. Very close to patrolled beach.

Stayed for 5 nights, got upgraded to 3 bedroom one for free, great, nice pool & spa, quiet neighbours, only downside is the early birds singing, flights not an issue but birds could be really annoying, no a biggie as i get up at about 6.

This was a nice clean apartment, but it smelt very strongly of smoke and alcohol on entry. The Pool area is lovely, as are the gardens. About a 5 min walk to the beach. We backed directly on to the Currumbin Wildlife sanctuary and there was a bit of wildlife noise, but nothing too loud. Unfortunately the bed was really... More

Stayed in November- mainly for the pool which didn't disappoint us or our toddler. The rooms were large and clean, although dated. Reception allowed us an early check in to help put the toddler asleep. Could do with an upgrade but then the price would probably go up and it's the value for money that makes this a good stay...

Stayed in a ground floor pool facing room with balcony front and rear. The front balcony overlooked the pool through lovely gardens. The grounds are very well maintained. We enjoyed the large spa. The aircraft noise did not bother us to much. The beach is just over the road through a park and the Wildlife Park backs onto the apartments... More

When you arrive at Sanctuary Lake Apartments, please take my advice and keep away from Unit 18. Firstly, in unit 18, the beds are EXTREMELY uncomfortable, the dishwasher is really loud and annoying, the overhead planes are too loud... They sound like they are about to land on the roof when they fly past. And also, no hot water in... More
