We managed to whale watch from the balcony most days. On the whole we had few complaints and enjoyed our stay immensely - it was only a few little things eg we found... More

Hi Teambloopy. Thank you for taking the time to write such a favourable review albeit our housekeeping wasn't quite up to scratch. With the cot sheets, probably if you gave us a heads up on your expectations then we would have been able assist you. 99% of the time families with babies bring their own sheets.

Rainbow Place gets it right on every level. For a start the location is unbelievable and makes you appreciate what a great country Australia is. The building is shaped in such a way that it takes advantage of the breathtaking views from every apartment. The winter sun splashes through every window at some point in the day. The building is...

Very good value; managers are first rate; the location is QUIET - a big plus for us which is why we did not want to stay at Coolangatta Beach or Surfers Paradise where noise from road, pubs and eateries can disturb sleep at night. Ten minutes walk to supermarkets, Target, op shops (my wife loves them!) and across road to... More
