Great boutique hotel so close to the beach

Posted Nov 30, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Probs could do with a bit of an update but that might change the ambiance and price.
Location: Walked to Cavell Ave easily, pretty much central to everything, 1 minute stroll to beach, great restaurants and the fave surf club so close.
We booked into Emerald Sands at the last minute on leaving the hinterland after a funeral. They were very accommodating when we got stuck in the late traffic and there was no problem booking in. Once there we were so happy with the apartment. There are only 3 on each floor, with great views and a minutes walk to the beach. The surf club is 2 minute walk up the road and what a great place to have a cold beer and watch the surf or grab a bite to eat. I would recommend Emerald Sands and look forward to staying again. The apartment was a little dated but that just added to how comfy it felt, plenty of room, owners were very helpful.....got a pool....what more could you ask for and a great price. cheers Emerald Sands.

Spacious apartment meters from the beach

Posted Nov 24, 2017
Pros: Its quiet, its clean and spacious. Good amenities and friendly hosts.
Cons: The room has a bit of an aged smell but was gone the moment you've open the balcony door
Location: Very central. Dining is walking distance. Beach only 50m. Surfers and Broadbeach only a stroll away. 30 mins from the airport.
I had a great stay at Emeralds. Friendly welcome and a clean and spacious room. Everything I need was there and it was well presented. My balcony had prime view onto the ocean (see one of the pics). Located in a quiet location (even during Schoolies!) and only 10 mins walking distance from Broadbeach or Surfers.

Great view of the beach!

Very 90's look and feel, but a great set up! Beach was so close and a 10 minute walk to Surfers. Washer and dryer, roomy. Big bed. No complaints and would be happy to go back again!

Spent 4 nights at the emerald sands and loved it!!! The manager was friendly and very helpful. The apartment was huge with a awesome view of the beach. The beach was at the end of the driveway and beautiful.
