We recently stayed here for a weeks family holiday. The self contained apartment was excellent, close to Surfers Paradise. We would definitely recommend and stay again but a few downfalls. The 2nd bedroom had a ceiling fan but the main bedroom didn't, and aircon was located in the living area. My husband spent most of the week sleeping on the... More

Brenda and Steve are amazing! Helpful, friendly and welcoming! The location is great. Sea View to die for. The apartment was beautiful. Very clean. The complex has a pool, tennis courts and a barbecue area which has a view of the river. Couldn't ask for more. Will return.

Stayed four nights in April 2015. Excellent value, great location and views and first rate service. Apartment was roomy, clean and comfortable and staff were extremely helpful. Would recommend and return. Our unit was obviously due for window cleaning, but this didn't obstruct breath-catching Ocean, river and city views. Perfect location close to tram and bus stops overcame need for... More

It was also a short walk to the tram that takes you to Broadbeach and to the university hospital. Steve and Brenda do a wonderful job managing the place... More

Stayed 5 nights on 10th floor, apparently a deluxe ocean view. And yes, the ocean view was great. However the a/c was almost non existent. There was a tiny a/c in living room that would not blow out a candle. The outside motor on balcony dripped water constantly straight onto the balcony and ran across the surface which made it...
