Hola Family – Booking.com – November 2020

Great place for families to enjoy a break by the beach!


We enjoyed our stay, the unit met expectations and the grounds were well kept. Location was perfect to keep the kids entertained and not far if we had to go out. Really loved our stay and we will be back.

Harrison Family – Booking.com – November 2020

Amazing!

The photos do not do the rooms justice (units 30 and 45). The staff were amazing and very helpful. The pool and pool area was perfect for the little ones. All around, great trip and will be booking again.

Dawson family – Booking.com – October 2020

Excellent stay!

Peter and Nadine were fantastic. Great communication and both went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed and more. Great location, with just a very short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Stone family – Booking.com – October 2020

Second time staying here at Sanctuary Beach – just as great as the first time. Nice clean apartment just meters from the beach.

Holmqvist family – Expedia.com – September 2020

Very relaxing and as the beach was so close spent so much time at the beach! It was a great location and the manager was excellent and always helpful. It was an excellent place to stay, and good value for money.

Rasmussen family – Booking.com – September 2020

Amazing location – step onto the beach!
We stayed in the 3 bedroom beachfront apartment. It was incredibly spacious, with an enormous parents retreat upstairs. The location was perfect.. step outside the apartment and onto the beach. Short walking distance to shops and cafe’s. Will definitely stay again.

Chadburn family – Trip Advisor – September 2020

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were in a beachfront unit and the view from our unit was fabulous. The unit had everything we needed and was clean and tidy on arrival. We especially loved that the kids
could run out the front of the unit and over to the beach without crossing any roads – very handy. The resort is conveniently located close to the wildlife sanctuary, the surf club (good food!) and a few nice little cafes. Currumbin Alley is also a short walk away. We didn’t need to drive at all
once we were there. We would definitely stay here again.

Donohoe family – TripAdvisor – July 2020

Will stay again!

Great property, great location and really friendly, helpful staff. Couldn’t be happier.

Nel family – Booking.com – July 2020

Relaxing!

Close to the beach in a quiet area. Facility along the beachfront for exercise was a bonus.

Benstead family – Booking.com – July 2020

We stayed in a ground floor beachfront unit. The owner has taken very good care of the unit. The complex is in good condition and ideally located to the beach as well as the wildlife sanctuary.

Bruce Family – Wotif – July 2020

So close to beach. Very comfortable beds. Very clean and very spacious.

Anonymous – Wotif – June 2020

Fantastic views from unit 45, clean and comfortable, will stay again!

Glasgow Family – Wotif – June 2020

The on-site manager was only too happy to help! He was an absolute delight! Rooms were huge, the beach was a few steps away and there was a shower between the beach and the resort making life easier!
The pool was great fun for the kids as well and we made sure to grab a few viewings of the Currumbin wildlife sanctuary bird feedings! It was spectacular!!!

Kilah family – Booking.com – March 2020

Perfect Beachfront Apartment
Our family of 6 hired unit 45, 3 bedroom beach front apartment.Beautiful spot, great views, large spacious apartment. Peter the manager was great, very friendly and helpful. Good room and resort facilities. The beach was ideal for swimming each day, we liked not being in a busy area but with easy access to everything. I wouldn’t stay in the units without a sea view as there’s nothing else to look at and that’s what we prefer. Pool is small but there weren’t many others using it. Clean outside areas.

Turner Family – Trip Advisor – March 2020

Perfect Family holiday! We loved everything about our stay. The staff, apartment, facilities and the location.
We even got offered a late check out and we didn’t even request it. Definitely recommend it. We will be back. It was perfect 👌

Schreurs family – Booking.com – Feb 2020

Great Location!
We spent 7 nights at Sanctuary Beach Resort, this was our second visit and this time we had a 2 bedroom Beachfront Unit (2nd back from the beach). The resort is in a ideal location as there is no road to cross when you want to go on the beach. The apartments are older style but the unit (14) which we stayed in has had money spent on it and has a Modern Kitchen, Bathrooms and Flooring. You can walk to the Surf Life Saving Club and the Vikings Bistro was very good. The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is just across the road and there is a convenience store that seems to have everything you need. The Gardens and Pool at the resort are lovely and Peter the Manager is always around working hard, he makes you feel very welcome when you arrive and certainly does a great job. The only thing I would suggest to the owners of this Unit is the bed in the Master Bedroom could do with an upgrade. I would recommend people to stay here and we would certainly stay again.

Note from Managers – Unit 14 now has a new bed in the master bedroom!

Corke Family -Trip Advisor – Feb 2020

Fabulous week with family
We booked 4 units for three daughters and their families with one unit for us. 9 grandkids made up the party! Our unit 30 was first level with fabulous ocean and beach views. Unit 45 three bedroom was spectacular. The other units were also ok. The manager Peter and office manager Nadine were extremely helpful and friendly. Peter works tirelessly to keep the grounds looking like paradise. We spent heaps of time on the beach – just step out the front door and across the pathway! The pool was also a favourite place. Evenings were special with kids playing games, adults chatting over nibbles and drinks overlooking the ocean. The BBQ area accommodated our entire group for an evening meal on New Year’s Day. Easy walking distance to Tugun shops for supermarket, bakeries, newsagent, fish and chips etc and 200m to Currumbin lifesavers Overall a great place to stay😊

Suzanne Fysh – Trip Advisor – Jan 2020

Perfect Family Getaway

Facilities are perfect for a family (Pool, BBQ, rooms, WIFI) staff

appointed (Fans, air conditioning, cooking facilities, dishwasher, dryer etc)

Leddin Family – Trip Advisor – Jan 2020

Excellent beach access and handy to local restaurants. A fantastic family holiday 🙂
Access to the beach is unbeatable. Excellent, excellent location. Nadine and Peter went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. Super lovely people.

Mc Coll family – Booking.com – Jan 2020

Amazing location, great unit, family friendly. We loved our stay!

We stayed this Christmas for one week, and had two ground floor units, one beachfront and the other garden view. Will definitely be back. The units are well looked after and have everything you need for a home away from home. Location is amazing, the surf club 5 minutes away with great views and food. The on-site manager and owner manager were always on hand and super helpful.

Ivkovic family – Trip Advisor – Jan 2020

Location and facilities were perfect, size of unit was exceptional, staff went above and beyond.

Alison Waugh – Booking.com – Dec 2019

A fabulous family getaway at Sanctuary Beach Resort
We’ve just returned from a three day family getaway at Sanctuary Beach Resort, with eight adults and seven children sharing two, three bedroom units. The main unit was absolute beachfront and was where we all congregated for meals (when we weren’t on the beach or in the pool!). The location was fabulous and Nadine and Peter (Owner and On Site Manager), were very accommodating with organising our big family! Nothing was too much trouble! Although we spent most of the time in
the beachfront unit, both units were very roomy and well stocked with the basics. Even though it was a nightmare trying to find dates to suit busy families, it all came together in the end, and the children in particular, had an absolute ball, with the four year old crying on the morning of departure that he wanted to stay here forever!
So say all of us. Try it….you won’t be disappointed.

KT and family – Trip Advisor – Dec 2019

Great accommodation within walking distance to the beach. The room full with amenities and clean. It has secured car park, swimming pool & barbeque pit. Very near to the airport – 5 min drive only.

Zainodin family – Hotels.com – Dec 2019

While the apartment we stayed in wasn’t particularly modern it had all the mod cons. Kitchen was well equipped and I was surprised it also had a full laundry. Was very handy to be able to wash and dry clothes while there. The on-site property managers were fantastic. Very friendly and helpful, they ensured our stay was a good one. Pool was fantastic and the property is well located for public transport. Excellentfor families.

Anonymous – Expedia – Dec 2019

Great location! Felt private but access to beach a minute away. Comfortable, clean , spacious and well equipped. Managers very friendly. Highly recommend staying here.

Manon Liefin – Booking.com – Sept 2019

We had such an amazing time. Beach on your door step, apartment was beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. Male caretaker (sorry didn’t catch your name) was beyond helpful and made our stay a fabulous experience.

Tanya Woodall – Booking.com – Aug 2019

Everything you need…
Unit 36. 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom. Stayed for a whole week and loved it! Step out of the back of the property and you’re on the miles long beachfront walking/biking path on Currumbin Beach. About 20 paces onto the sand and a few more to the sea. Shops and takeaways only
a kilometre or so away in one direction, 5 minutes drive in the other for a huge shopping centre. Everything you need in the fully equipped kitchen to cook for yourself or a family, and a choice of 2 balconies with loungers to follow the sun for tanning. Although the downstairs bathroom/laundry is dated it functions well. The onsite Manager, Peter, is a gem. Nothing is too much trouble. Would stay again.

Alan Trish – Trip Advisor – July 2019

Perfect location in walking distance to cafes, surf club and beach. Nice a quiet without the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise will definitely be back when looking for a relaxing weekend away.

Erin Pinner – Booking.com – May 2019

Spacious family accommodation
Warm friendly greeting and personalised tour. Our 3 bedroom villa was spacious and had everything you need for an extended family holiday with a private upstairs parent retreat. Kids loved the pool Listening
to the sounds of the beach at night was wonderful. Highly recommend

FamMemories – Trip Advisor – May 2019

Unbeatable location
We stayed for 8 nights in an apartment facing the pool. The beachfront location of Sanctuary Beach Resort with no roads to cross to the beach was a dream for our family with three children. It was like having our own private beach, and the surf life saving club just a stone’s throw away. Walking distance to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Pacific Parade
cafes, and Currumbin Alley where our children attended surf school.
Peter (onsite manager) and Nadine (owner manager) were very responsive to email correspondence through the whole process, from initial enquiries to booking and beyond, going out of their way to try and accommodate our requests. They were most welcoming on our arrival and during our stay, and we were most impressed by the comfort and space of our apartment. We had the best time and can’t wait to go back!

Joy C – Trip Advisor – April 2019

Fantastic location and friendly staff
WOW WOW WOW!! We stayed in the beachfront apartment. It has plenty of space and doors that open up all of the front of the unit, making you feel that you are on the beach. The staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating and willing to help with all your needs. Will definitely go back!!

Mostert Family – Trip Advisor – April 2019

Fantastic location, right on the beach, short stroll to lovely cafes and the Currumbin SLSC. A short walk to the Currumbin alley surf spot. Unit was clean, spacious and fresh. Everything you need supplied. Comfortable beds. Really enjoyed staying at the sanctuary beach Resort with my family. Although 4×4 car did not fit height wise in the car park the street parking was ample and the area quiet and safe. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Edwina Bowie – Booking.com – April 2019

The stay was great and the surroundings we’re beautiful. I loved that I walked out of my apartment and it went straight to the beach. Also, all the stores were walking distance right down the street. There was a small local business across the street which had great coffee. The people around we’re all friendly. It was just a great place to stay.

I loved everything.

Rebecca Smith – Booking.com – April 2019

Nothing short of amazing!
Our weeklong stay at Sanctuary Beach Resort was perfect. The location was right on the beach, the grounds were impeccable, and the staff were courteous and helpful. We started every day with a beach walk on beautiful white sand, then a quick dip in the pool. We were able to walk to restaurants, and shopping. The self contained apartment was very clean and had a fully stocked kitchen, 2 washrooms and a washer & dryer. Great experience overall.

Cindy L – Trip Advisor – Feb 2019

Group Visit
2nd time stay at this resort – great spot on the beach and easy walk to Vikings surf club and Currumbin alley – we had a 3 bedroom apartment and we had a early checkin and late checkout! Friday nights they have a night food market across the road. The resort was very accommodating! Highly recommend 👍

Mastever – Trip Advisor – Nov 2018

So glad we choose this property. We drove north and south along the coast and saw highrise after highrise. We highly recommend a beachfront room. View is unforgettable.
