4 of us (2 adults 2 small kids) stayed in a sub penthouse (1503) for a week. This is on the 15th floor and the views are outstanding. Room was beautifully appointed and although some object to the see through screen to the bathroom, we found it great to give the kids a bath and still be able watch them.... More

This apartment in Kirra beach is outstanding. The decorations look as though Shayna Blaze from the Block has visited. The rooms are well laid out. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and got a reasonable rate through Hotel.com. The kitchen is equipped very well. Even has a wok burner on the stove the bathroom s are magnificent.

Thank you Cathy for posting a review of our apartments here at Nirvana. They are fully equipped with everything you need for a lovely home away from home holiday. The views of Kirra Beach are beautiful. If you're lucky you may even get to see the whales heading north this time of year. We hope to see you again soon. More

I recently stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment. We were on the 8th floor and the views are absolutely stunning. Beautifully appointed and large rooms. If you are looking not to be in the heart of Surfers this is a beautiful place to stay. Friendly staff and plenty of excellent places to eat on the ground level with views... More

Pitstopping here on the way to somewhere else and selected based on location. Turns out made the right decision. The apartment is well laid out and the location enabled us to walk to Coolangatta with a nice stroll and no stress. There are a large number of little great cafés around and you can choose a different one each meal.

We often stay here with my family considering the fantastic location and the quality of the apartments. We always stay in the sky homes as they are spectacular and we were not disappointed on this occasion. Level 13, views up and down the coast and the usual attentive staff. A few more dining options locally but still well located to... More

We booked for Cooly Rocks in June as there was no places available in Coolangatta. So glad we did . This place is amazing. Staff friendly and helpful. Apartment was spacious, modern furnishing and wonderful kitchen. The views were wonderful. Unbeknown to us at the time of booking this was a perfect position for Cooly Rocks . A lovely walk... More

Thank you for such a lovely review Janelle. We believe we are the perfect spot for Cooly Rocks also. As you said you can sit on your balcony and watch the parade go by without the hassle of crowds.

Clean and comfortable. We had a 2-bedroom apartment, I think it's 1101, although not directly facing the sea but we have 270 degrees view. Lovely apartment and the best part is the big balcony with excellent sea view. Secure car park and no complains to anything except the followings. The double bed is a bit too soft as I like... More

We had checked the reviews before booking this hotel and we were not disappointed. Lovely room, clean and had views of the ocean, we even got to see the whales each afternoon. My only concern would be all the glass in the bathroom, it wasn't easy to see if the door was open or closed as there were no markings... More

This is the best accommodation you can get in Kirra. The views are outstanding especially from the front apartments. Get a 3xbedroom apartment; all bedrooms have ensuites, and being at the front of the building they have the best views. Unfortunately there is only one 3xbedroom apartment per floor, as all the rest are 2xbedders.
