“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Great value and top service from the Genesis team. Rooms were comfortable and spacious! couldn't fault anything during our stay,we were a group of 15 across 4 3x bedroom apartments and l didn't have one complaint from any of the people l travelled with about the apartments. Location wise was fantastic just a couple minutes walk from heart of surfers paradise and 2 minute walk to the beach. Highly recommend it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We recently stayed 5 nights at Genesis and it was perfect. We had 4 adults and 2 children and the apartment was plenty big enough for all of us. Having 2 bathrooms was great. The decor was nice and it had everything we needed. Having the laundry was a god send and even when we ran out of laundry soap Dion was more than accommodating by lending us a box of laundry powder.

The location was great, being a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 10 mins from Cavill Ave. and had convenience shops just down the road that were open late. It was quiet, except for the black and white birds that liked to talk all night :-) The beds were very comfy and I was tempted to take my pillow home it was that great.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay here again, We look forward to seeing you the next time we stay

Room Tip: We were on the 10th floor

I stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with 5 of my girlfriends, was a great, spacious, clean and modern room, the staff were so helpful and friendly. I definitely recommend Genisis to all. We are planning our next trip and will be back at Genisis.

We are staying right now at this location , excellent management beautifully appointed apartments , excellent equipment , and all problems are resolved quickly by the management .
The only issue is the slow internet , but I hear that this is a general problem in Australia .

I recently managed 2 open age state sporting teams and was recommended by others to look into genesis. I am so glad they did!!!
Not only was this a great location for us but they were accommodating beyond belief. The apartments were spacious and clean and the facilities were brilliant. I have to make special mention of Lauren it would not have been as easy as it was without her.
Thanks again for everything!
Highly recommended x

Had an amazing stay. The rooms are spacious and the staff met all of our specific requests about the type of room and furnishings we wanted. The management was extremely helpful and friendly. Great location, close to town, the Q1, and of course the beach. Will definitely stay here again!
