Spent a week and did not want to go home. Great views, excellent location, secure building and car parking, good amenities including pool and BBQ area. Will definitely stay again. Direct access to a patrolled beach.

We did not know any better but we were a group of 10 travellers in 3 apartments and Judy and Chris arranged for all of us to be accommodated... More

This is a great complex,perfectly located for access to beach, SkyPoint, Infinity and the main scene of Surfers Paradise. The pool is beautiful and we enjoyed peaceful early morning swims before the sun got too hot, which was heaven. Parking onsite underground was excellent. Room fit-out was adequate, and we had what we needed in the kitchen. On the negative... More

Stayed at unit 35. Ocean view was fantastic. Rooms did not have air conditioning, but it was cooling and windy enough. The thing we did not like was the shower in the master room. It had very poor flow. Nothing Judy nor Chris could do as I think it was a plumbing issue. Lucky thing was the shower area beside... More

We stayed here for a week in November and had an apartment on the 13th floor. The views are amazing and completely make this worth 5 stars on its own. The apartment was spacious, clean and well appointed. One slight improvement could be to update the balcony furniture so guests can enjoy that view even more but it didn't stop... More

The apartment was exactly as detailed, very modern, loads of space, fully equipped kitchen, very clean, perfect location to Cavill Ave and amazing views as far as your eyes could... More
