“GREAT VALUE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

After having stayed at Caravan Holiday resort cabins on the Gold Coast in the past, we were thrilled with the excellent amenities and space at a very very competitive price.The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, the beds and bedding comfortable and although there were children staying at Paradise Isles we enjoyed a pleasant and quiet stay. We shopped in the big smoke to our heart's delight and had some very enjoyable meals out, especially at the local Thai restaurant.
Needless to stay, we will be back, to quote Arnold.

P.S. Trip advisor does not recognise the town in which I have lived for 9 years, so I picked one at random

Room Tip: higher floors have more stairs!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed two nights recently as we were in town for the Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercars. The accommodation was absolutely sufficient for that purpose - about a 10-15 minute walk to the track and included secure underground parking. Our room was pretty basic, certainly not luxury nor spacious, but clean with everything we needed for our short stay.
It's a 3 minute walk to Thomas drive where there is a convenience store, bottle store, and a couple of nice restaurants, or 10 mins walk over the bridge to the heart of surfers.
A nice bonus was that the pool and spa were perfect temperatures and not busy so we had plenty of opportunity to utilize these.

Corina,
Thankyou for your review. We certainly are in a great position for the GC V8 Super cars. You can park your car in the secure park under the building and walk to the track each day. We look forward to having you back with us again next year.

The Paradise Isles experience was a nice change from the previously fairly crook accommodation we experienced in the Gold Coast . We arrived late and a note plus key were conveneiently left for us - great service the next morning. We had a quiet room with no road noise or loud partying going on - something that has plagued previous visits to the Coast.The bed was comfortable , kitchen clean and tidy and a washing machine a nice bonus. The weather was too cold to use the pool but Chevron Island is off the main Gold Coast Highway and therefore well away from road noise caused by traffic or construction work associated with the newly planned light rail service. Its quite central and is even in reasonable driving distance to Brisbane so all in all a great choice and we would be happy to stay there again if we decide to revisit the Gold Coast. Many thanks.

We stayed at Paradise Isles for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of this fully contained affordable apartment accommodation.
It is located close to surfers Paradise and has plenty of shops and cafes nearby (Thomas Drive , 500 mts) . The apartment was modestly furnished and is kept neat and tidy.

At the time of booking , we requested to checkin early since our flight reaches in the morning and were delighted when the reception told us that our unit is ready .

Overall great place if you are looking for an affordable stay and don't mind staying a little distance from the happening surfers paradise area .

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at Paradise Isles and will stay again next year. The location is perfect You are a very short flat walk into the heart of Surfers Paradise and the Chevron Island shopping village yet you stay in a very tranquil and peaceful apartment away from it all. Chevron Island is also ideally located to access many other suburbs and beachside areas of the Gold Coast.

Whilst the apartment we stayed in had some dated furnishing and could do with some more natural light, we found this to be a very minor issue as the tranquility of our location and the comfortable bed made for an excellent night's sleep. Also I agree with an earlier review in that the apartment cost is excellent value for money compared to the price you pay for a shoebox room in a hotel that is normally located in a noisy part of town and staring at another high rise apartment. This location is far removed from this aspect of the Gold Coast and its so nice to be in a location that is away from the hustle and bustle of Sufers and other larger coastal beach areas such as Broadbeach etc.

We utilsed the apartment facilities and found that all the basic requirements are included and you only need to buy your own neccesities for cooking etc. We also ate out and if you want a great takeaway then the Seafood shop in the Chevron Island village serves up an excellent fish and chips and/or fish and salad etc-as good as we have had anywhere!There is also a couple of convenience stores, including the Spar chain, for any needs and its only a short walk to Coles across the brdige heading into Surfers. The villlage though covers most needs from restaurants to cafes to bread shops to a butcher.

Whilst we did not use the pool it looked absolutely sparkling and the BBQ area was of the same high standard of cleanliness as was the pool surrounds.We also found our apartment to be very clean and well presented when we arrived.

Finally, I would also like to compliment Diane working in the front office for her always smiling and happy presonality backed up with excellent knowledge and advice from the time we started the booking process until our departure. Her 19 years of experience working for Paradise Isles is reflected in her excellent customer service.

Where do we start?.
Maybe the under cover secure parking for our hire car.
Or the fact that Paradise Isles is well within walking distance of the center of Surfers and the Beach.
The friendly staff that hired us extra beach towels that we could take to the beach and back. The staff also made bookings for us so we didn't have to line up to get into attractions.
We found everything in the room that we needed for our stay and we could spead out a bit rather than $160 a night for a shoebox motel.
We sleep well as the area was very quiet and the other guest's very polite. We was able to do our washing in the apartment before we left, so no dirty clothes came home with us.
Yes the apartment was only stocked with the bare nesescity's but remember these are only time share apartments. We didn't have to clean up cause we ate out... Isn't that what holiday's are about??. If you want to have people wait hand and foot on you pay a fourtune at a flash motel or go stay with ya Mum maybe??.

Room Tip: If you are no good with stairs ask for a ground floor unit, and if you want to view Surfers from you...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Paradie Isles. It certainly is a bonus to have FREE undercover parking, where you can just park your car for the duration of your holiday and walk over the bridge into Surfers Paradise and enjoy the sights and sunshine.
We are extremely good value considering a Motel has one room with no cooking facilities, and we have full kitchen with microwave, oven, dishwasher and all pots and pans etc, and the bonus is a laundry in the bathroom, with washing machine and drier. Thankyou for your review, and we hope to see you again soon.

We stayed here early August. The room was very clean, but certainly outdate. The furniture is well past in used by date including the television. Unfortunately our room leaked water as we showered which was certainly quite slippery and dangerous. The water even seeped out into the loungeroom onto the carpet so which meant we always had a wet spot. When we notified staff we were basically told off for not making them aware earlier so they could have interrupted our staff and got a handle man in to fix it! This leak has certainly been going on for before we stayed there as the carpet was wet when we arrived.

Thankyou for your review when you stayed with us in August.
I do remember you reporting the leak in the bathroom on the morning you checked out, when you handed your keys in to us, and we promptly sent our Maintenance team up to rectify the problem after your departure.
It did appear this had been leaking for a while, as the underfloor was very damp when we lifted the carpet, but if we had have been told about this earlier, we could have moved you to another apartment, which would have made your stay more pleasant. We needed to have this repaired and dried immediately, as other guests were arriving same day you departed, and did have to move the arrivals to another apartment and could not re-let this one until it had dried.
As you can appreciate all apartments are individually owned, and we pride ourselves on looking after each unit for the owners, and making sure maintenance is kept up. We like guests to report these issues, as our cleaners do when they clean the apartments, so we can keep Paradise Isles up to the highest standard, and make your holiday a pleasant experience.
