We recently decided to stay in Surfers Paradise for a couple of nights, and what a pleasant surprise. Our host Erika was such a friendly and helpful person who went out of her way to make sure we were happy with everything. She gave us some great tips on restaurants and we invited her to come with us on our... More

We totally enjoyed our stay at "Anchor Down". Very conveniently located to the centre of Surfers Paradise, and only a short stroll to the beach. Our apartment on the top floor ( unit 23), north facing and overlooking the pool, was clean and in very good condition, it had everything we needed. Plenty of dish washing liquid and a spare... More

Shower had mould, bed were so uncomfortable, sand all through the apartment. Make sure if you need to use the toilet... More

A central location, walking distance to the Surfers Paradise shopping, restaurants and bars. We stayed in a ground floor apartment by the pool with a well planted for privacy, outdoor area and gardens. The beds and furniture were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with equipment, although the glasses and crockery required a wash before use. The apartment was... More

Dear Adkjs, Thank you for leaving your review. I would like to clarify the point you raised about the car park. While the car park you were allocated may be small, it is still able to comfortably fit a 4WD in it. I apologise if you feel it is our fault that you damaged your car but we supply the... More

Handy location to Surfers main arcade - only 5-10 minutes to everywhere in Surfers. Clean apartments - ideal for families. Friendly staff. Parking underneath. Pool popular with kids - well sheltered from wind.

Anchor Down apartments are centrally located within an easy walk to the main area of Surfers Paradise. With undercover secure parking and away from the noise of the clubs etc it is a great place for families. Our family with two small children has stayed here twice without any complaint. The apartments are clean and roomy with excellent facilities. The... More
