About Roger Wilson
Recently retired advertising consultant in both Sydney and the Gold Coast, my wife and I moved down from the C Gold Coast's Hinterland a couple of years ago to enjoy the coastal climate and lifestyle that we traveled to on a regular basis. Originally from Torquay on the Victorian West Coast, the lure of the ocean was always within me and we are now living the life and the spectacular ocean views that the whole country loves to visit.
Roger Wilson purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Roger Wilson chose Gold Coast
Focus is an established icon on the Coast and due to its early design and construction, the interiors are large if not generously spacious and tiled throughout. Positioned to the northern end of Surfers Paradise and right on the light rail (tram) circuit, the transport providing excellent carriage to Broadbeach for additional dining options and the world-class retail experience of Pacific Fair ( we also go to the movies there). Big feature - the patrolled beach is just across the road via pedestrian crossing.
What makes this Apartment unique
Solid construction means that we do not hear our neighbours - there are 4 quadrants to the building we are one of 4 apartments per floor with views to the northeast, North, and northwest. As one of only a few circular buildings in Australia Focus is easily recognized and known well by Taxi and Uber Drivers alike. Reception can arrange theme park tickets and answer other tourism questions.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
The immediate area is safe and well lit. We're just out of the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise with its shopping, restaurants and vibrant night life, but close enough to make walking an easy means of getting around. Reception can assist with info and tickets to theme parks
Go Cards are required for all public transport and 4 are in our compendium for guests' convenience. They can be topped up at any 7/Eleven or tram station. Buses are nearby and a taxi rank is across the road. Uber is more affordable and this location ensures swift arrival when booked.
Other things to note
Traffic could be hectic during the Games making the nearby light rail an ideal way to move around.
