Family Apartments On The Gold Coast – A Great Choice For Holidays
Category: Blog Written by : Phoenician Resort
The concept of self-catering holidays isn’t new, of course, but it is certainly becoming more popular – partly because travellers are seeing the many advantages, but also because of the growth of luxury self-catering.
A few decades ago, a self-catering holiday basically meant a caravan or camping! Today, however, it could mean a penthouse apartment.
Holiday apartments on the Gold Coast are increasingly popular, especially with families, who want to enjoy a carefree holiday and a touch of luxury, without the price tag.
In fact, family apartments on the Gold Coast are booked out for most of the year these days.
Plenty of freedom
There are many advantages to renting a fully self-contained apartment, such as freedom, independence, the choice of dining in or out and, of course, bags of room to spread out.
Family apartments on the Gold Coast are a great choice. When the children are young, it can get a bit stressful trying to keep them entertained, fed and quiet when needed! Far too stressful in a hotel, I would imagine!
But with your own apartment, you can come and go as you please – and the beach is just a few steps away. So if a little somebody gets a bit tired and grumpy, it’s an easy walk back to the apartment for an afternoon nap.
Equally, if the kids are hungry, it’s quick – and cheaper – to organise a snack back at the apartment, than trying to find empty seats in the busy restaurants.
Plenty to do
And with Austar available in some holiday apartments on the Gold Coast, you’ll find something on TV to keep them quiet for a while!
Family apartments on the Gold Coast are great if you’re on a tight budget, as you can shop locally and cook in the apartment and, if you choose a quality apartment, such as the Phoenician Resort, you’ll have private laundry facilities, too.
Not only does that save time and money, but it means you won’t be facing a mountain of laundry when you get home!
These days resorts offer fabulous facilities, including swimming pools, spas and saunas, gyms, barbecue areas and more besides. So if you really don’t feel like taking on the theme parks that day, there’s still plenty to do back at the resort.
A handy tip if you’re holidaying out of season, is to choose a resort like the Phoenician, that offers indoor and outdoor pools, just in case the weather is a bit off one day. They have a games room, too, which is great for keeping the kids occupied.
Close to the beach
Holiday apartments on the Gold Coast have definitely come a long way since those early days in the 1980s at Surfers Paradise. Even standard apartments would have been considered luxurious back then!
Nowadays, holiday apartments are like a home from home, with top quality appliances and entertainment systems, all mod cons in the kitchen, big comfy beds and private lounges.
The resorts have lovely, private tropical gardens to ensure peace and quiet, and of course, you would always pick a resort within easy reach of the beach itself.
Really, with holiday apartments on the Gold Coast, you just can’t lose!
