With some wonderful views and a location handy for the beach, shops and restaurants, Little Cove is another option for family-friendly, good value accommodation.
You will also find that Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is nearby, as are some nice parks, play areas for children and picnic spots. Even the Pines Shopping Centre is only around five minutes walk.
The accommodation is in fully self-contained apartments, which come with either two or three bedrooms. At least some of the apartments belong to private owners, so as usual the style and furnishings can vary somewhat. Generally speaking it can be said that they are very clean with lots of room to move, and have a fairly contemporary feel.
Some of the views can be quite spectacular, looking out over the creek and up the Gold Coast towards Surfers Paradise. It’s particularly nice in the evening, as the high rise buildings in the distance start to light up.
It should be noted that not all of the apartments are fitted with air conditioning: if you think that you would prefer to have it, consult with the front desk regarding which would be suitable for your needs before you make a booking.
Also, there are three levels and no lifts: it’s a walk-up. This is typical of the area. If the thought of the stairs is an issue, the front desk is happy to advise you as to what is available on the ground or first floors.
There is a nice big pool in the centre of the complex, which is heated during the winter. There is also a spa and a sauna. The central courtyard also features a large area for entertaining, complete with BBQ facilities.
Naturally, there is also a tour desk to help you plan and book any tours or visit any of the Gold Coast’s many attractions.
One issue that affects Little Cove (just like all accommodation in Currumbin) is the noise from overhead flights to and from the nearby airport. This is an issue that bothers some people far more than others, with many visitors not seeming to mind. It’s certainly not like Los Angeles Airport, but it is noticeable.
Little Cove is located at Unit 26, 36 Duringan Street in Currumbin. Telephone (07) 5534 4922.
