Each year, millions of tourists from all over the world flock to Gold Coast’s Surfers Paradise to chase the sun. It’s indeed laden with dreamy accommodations such as luxe hotels and family resorts as well as all kinds of fun and entertaining activities. You can spend the day getting your tan on the sand or dip in the water, shop for some beach essentials or souvenirs for everyone back home, or get to visit one of the many attractions and theme parks such as Sea World and Movie World. Bungee jumping and banana boat rides are also some of the best things to do on your first Surfers Paradise holiday. By nighttime, you can try hopping from one club or bar to another at the beach that doesn’t sleep. For a memorable trip, make sure that you stay in one of these top Airbnb vacation rentals in Surfers Paradise, Australia.

1. Bright high-rise home overlooking the city and sea (from USD 187)

Enjoy sights of not just the city skyline but also the ocean’s horizon while you stay in this lovely high-rise Airbnb in Surfer’s Paradise, Australia. Brew some coffee or tea using the kettle or chill some juice and booze in the fridge, then enjoy a lazy afternoon hanging out on the balcony. Once it’s time to prepare dinner, the hi-tech kitchen will make things much easier for both prep and cleanup because of the stocked cutlery, hi-tech stovetop oven, and sturdy dishwasher.

While the home is quite fine, you can also use the building’s facilities. Take a dip in the community pool to cool off without walking all the way to the beach. If you’re feeling stressed, take some time to detox in the sauna instead.
