Close to shops, beach, restaurants, entertainment. Love it! This high rise is great for elderly family members as there are no stairs to climb. Very clean, bright apartment with uninterrupted views of the ocean, whales, surfers and city. Always come back here on a regular basis. Very safe and secure. The kids love the pool!

Checked in early and left our car under the building. The unit wasn't ready yet but the managers kindly looked after our bags and gave us towels so we could go to the beach for the day and they would call us when the unit had finished being cleaned. We were instantly blown away by the view when we walked... More

The trouble with this place is that some apartments are managed by a local real estate company and most are managed obviously by the on-site managers. It quickly became apparent that the two don't talk and don't co-operate (neither should they I guess) but the loser is the paying customer. Let me explain what happened with us. We booked through...

Wonderful friendly, staff who surprised us with a box of toys for our young daughter and they were also very helpful. Lovely location, views and clean well appointed apartments. We have since been back for a second stay and that was just a lovely as the first. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Surprised by some of the comments about Debbie. We have stayed there quite a number of times for the past 5 years and have had no issue with the Management. We always found them very helpful and easy to communicate with both Phil and Debbie. Fantastic location and views. Kevin

I have just come back from spending 7 nights at Carool apartments. I was horrified to read such a negative review from 4 April. The Manager, Deborah was incredibly helpful to me. It was a busy time to get accommodation at the Australian Surf Titles held this year at Kirra. Our team had booked sometime before so even though I... More

Stayed for a few nights a couple of months ago and it was amazing. Great views, good service, nice apartment. Beach just across the road. Pool includes free BBQ facilities which we took advantage of and loved. Would definitely stay again!

If you are looking for a family friendly place, then I do not suggest Carool. We had booked and paid for ,7 days at a really cheap rate, however we paid the price in the short stay there. Not what you call friendly as once we paid and asked a few questions, I new this lady did not want to... More

This was my 1st stay at Carool after a recommendation from my boyf's family. We were in room 28 on the 12th floor, which is on the eastern side of the building. The views are fantastic, as long as you don't have a fear of heights! The main bedroom faced DBar, and you fall asleep with the relaxing sound of... More

We have just spent 15 days on holiday at Carool. We rented the 4 bedroom apt as there were 8 of us. It was the holiday you always dream about. Waking up to ocean views from all the rooms and watching the whales and dolphins. BBQ on the balcony with nothing but the sound of waves. Perfect location to the... More
