We stayed here for two weeks with a family of five and I was really surprised with the size of the apartment and the stunning location, beautiful beach views. We come from a rural location and hate traffic noise and that was one thing I was dreading, but even with master bedroom facing the street side we didn't hear one... More

The location is right on the beach so we just needed to go downstairs and out the back. It's a bit of a walk from the main shopping strip but doable. Coffee shops within 10min walking distance. The apartment has 3 bedrooms, one of which has two bunk beds. The master on suite's toilet was not in top shape but... More

We stayed in apartment No. 14 for 5 nights late August 2014 and it was fantastic. Such a great location and right on the beach - just walk out through the back gate onto the beach - so nice for walking in the mornings. The apartment was massive - so big and well laid out. We had an enormous deck... More

Just had a fantastic three night stay at Penthouses. Great location, great views and wonderful friendly staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Fantastic weekend away for a group of Mums! We all had a very relaxing time. Thanks Lisa

We recently stayed for 4 nights in one of the 3 bedroom apartments and had a wonderful time. We were a family of 4 adults and 3 kids and the apartment was just perfect for us. It was huge, had amazing views, so close to the beach, kids loved it. The apartment is well maintained with 3 huge bedrooms and... More

What an excellent location for a family get together, we travelled with several other families with children between the ages of 3 to 14. All facilities suited our entire group with large units for group get togethers, pool and spa another great meeting place. The morning walks on the beach with the children swimming and learning to surf, everything is... More

We've just arrived home from 7 nights staying at the Penthouses. We can't say enough good things about it! The apartment was huge, with amazing views. And you can't beat being right on the beach. It was the perfect location. Our kids loved having such easy access to the beach, and also being able to use the pool and spa... More

We just stayed at the Penthouse Apartments for the June long weekend and it was awesome. We normally stay further down the coast at Broadbeach as it is quieter but these apartments were recommended to us and I'm glad we went. It was great, you can't get any closer to the beach, our 3 bedroom apartment was huge, we stayed... More

yes, The Penthouses is centrally located - being a 12 minute stroll along the beach to Cavill Mall - the centre of Surfers Paradise, yet so quiet. All you hear is the sound of the sea! It's great to know you used and enjoyed our facilities - there's still the free BBQ's and full sized, lit tennis court - so... More

We stayed with a group of friends for a long weekend. Could not fault the size of the apartment, views from the rooms and balconies were spectacular and proximity to everything we needed was only a short stroll. If I wanted to be real picky the unit we stayed in could have done with a little freshen up. However this... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. You're quite right, the unit could do with a freshen up which is why it is sold as a 3 star at a reduced price. We are 3.5 star AAA rated and to ensure guests receive value for money, we separate out those apartments that are a little tired... More

we have been staying at the Penthouses for over 10 years, several times a year. It's simply just the whole package - a great location within walking distance to either Broadbeach or Surfers and right on the water. The views are outstanding, the apartments are hugh - there is ample room for the biggest family - the parking secure and... More
