It looks nice on the internet, but not what it seems. It is very old style. The main bedroom bed had a egg shell underlay on top of the mattress. The balcony furniture had seen it's day. The kids beds look like the bedcovers had never been washed. No aircon in the bedrooms. Disappointing for a first family holiday away.... More

This guest made no comment during her stay. All our executive apartments have air conditioning. Some ducted and some are a split system. The apartment was on the 20th floor and quite spectacular. Definitely executive standard. Lovely sea breezes at night and great views. Not a typical comment - what a shame. More

We travelled from Wauchope to Orange and then orange to Main Beach. The whole process was fabulous. They offered us to book in a day earlier and said if we didn't arrive in time (due to the distance being travelled) they would charge us for the extra night. We didn't arrive when expected and the keys were made available after... More

I found the Contessa to be in a great location and was nice and quiet. Very close to the restaurant and shops in Main Beach. I even stayed there whilst it was schoolies and would have no hesitation in staying there again at the same time.

Family of 5 stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment in Jan 2014. Dated decor & cheep furniture like most of Gold Coast Apartments at this price but very clean. Didn't need Aircon for first 4 days, just opened the windows & doors & got blown away. Next 2 days were humid so we used the aircon. Apartment had everything you... More

We stayed at this property for 5 days in early November, and shared a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit with another couple. The apartment is in a perfect location in that is near all the action in Surfers, but just far enough away (10 minute walk) so as to not be too loud and noisy. The Tedder Avenue shops and... More

Great location. Beautiful surroundings. Well priced. Central to Sea World, Gold Coast attractions and beautiful panoramic views. Rooms were tastefully decorated and staff very friendly. I would highly recommend the Contessa to all travelers.

We are regular guests at Contessa. The units are good sized and well appointed. The common areas always are clean and well presented. Handy to Main Beach and patrolled beaches. Short walk to Tedder avenue for restaurants and supplies

Great apartment and great location. Hassle free and enjoyable. Large and spacious, quiet, with the Tedder Avenue café/restaurant strip 3 minutes walk away, patrolled beach just 3 minutes in the other direction. Pool and other communal areas well maintained.
