Singh the manager is very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Conveniently located on Chevron Island just walking distance to Surfers Paradise and many resturants and bars. Thanks for making our... More

What an amazing place to stay in Gold Coast! Affordable, close to everything, fully self contained apartment and awesome staff. I met the manager who checked me in, very friendly and humble guy. He was quite informative and helpful. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone and will return.

Then wait and wait and wait. Almost an hour later it's finally ready. Then our friends travelling with us try to turn... More

Awesomely located on chevron island a 5 min stroll to cavil mall and beach, perfectly hidden away from the city traffic. I suggest bringing your own loo paper and soap as only 1 roll is provided.

I found the apartment quiet, clean and comfortable. It was convenient to the Cavil Mall, public transport, and Surfers Paradise attractions. I would certainly go back again and would recommend it to family and friends travelling to the Gold Coast. I have read the other comments and it surprised me. I don't mind buying extra toilet rolls, I like green... More
