I stayed with 3 friends in a 3 bedroom apartment while celebrating a special occasion. We were on a high floor which had fantastic views overlooking the ocean and down the coastline. Being across the road from the beach is just awesome and it is only a very short walk into the centre of Surfers Paradise or a few minutes...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so glad you had a fabulous stay. Not all our apartments have air conditioning as the ocean breezes are pretty good most of the time. Please give us a call direct next time and we will see what we can arrange for you. We look forward to welcoming...

I have travelled to Surfers Paradise a few times recently and I will not stay anywhere else......a much needed break was needed and by golly I felt like a queen.....the room (38) was beautiful well maintained and clean. The colour scheme was beautiful and a balcony off every room with complete ocean views just topped off a great 5 days.....

Amazing holiday experience. We stayed on level 22 with 2 bedroom apartment. The only problem was wifi was not working there. Staff tried to restart the modem but didnt help. They dont even do any housekeeping for 7 nights-8 days of stay.

We were very happy with our apartment. It had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable and had a great view. Our apartment was due for a spruce up, but it was all superficial stuff. The bed was comfortable, the shower had good pressure and the air-con kept the temperature to a liveable level. It was good value for money,...

Stayed here recently for a couple of nights with a group of friends. The place itself I cant really fault when you consider price/quality ratio. In the height of summer, all accommodation in Surfers is through the roof where this place was a lot more reasonably priced. Pros: Location Very friendly staff Pool/BBQ Area is nice and kept well Price...

Thank you for your review. We really do strive to provide good value for money. I have taken your comments on board and replaced a lot of the tired looking kitchen utensils and appliances. As all apartments are privately owned, a lot of the owners do not feel the need to install air conditioning as the ocean breezes are lovely....

Stayed in the deluxe 2 bedroom apartment. Was not deluxe. Couch was torn. 2 rolls of toilet paper were provided for 4 people for 7 nights. Had to buy everything- absolutely nothing in apartment such as salt/pepper/toilet paper. Construction site next door. Woke early to noise every day. Couldn't use pool during day as right by the construction. Too much...
