“Recommended - we booked again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Had an excellent apartment, better than expected and close to Main Beach for restaurants and bars. Everything both inside the apartment and in the common areas was neat, clean and smelled fresh. Good people managing it too.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom executive, it was great in many ways. Although because its an apartment there were dirty cutlery and dishes. Except that I would recommend this apartment. The views were AMAZING!. We had a view of a boat lake one way, and the beach the other.

Stayed September 2012, traveled with family

Thank you for your great comments. We do supply a "welcome" pack of Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Milk, Soap, Toilet paper. We also supply washing up liquid, dishwasher pellets and laundry powder. Enough for most stays. Further supplies can be obtained from the reception. I note that our new web page design has omitted this information - thank you for bringing it to our attention.

For a family holiday we couldn't ask for much more. With three kids (8, 5 & 3) Contessa was a great location, close to beach, theme parks and local shops & Cafe's. Room was clean, spacious with everything you need. Indoor and outdoor pools proved a hit and underground parking convenient. Highly recommended.

Kids loved the pools and spa, close to the beach and Tedder Ave shops, quiet place and away from the bustle of Surfers Paradise. The Tennis Court and Gym are well maintained.
Jan & David were great Managers.
We'll come back again!

We loved our stay at Contessa. The wonderful sun soaked north facing balconies and the sea breezes, a few minutes walk to the beaches and restaurants at Tedder Avenue make the Contessa our favourite place to stay. We enjoyed the tennis court but a little too cool to jump in the outside pool. The apartment was beautiful, clean and spacious for the three of us and we are looking forward to another opportunity to stay there again as it is very close to where my daughter lives. Main Beach is much quieter than where we used to stay but that is what we like about it. The Managers were very friendly and welcoming. Close to Sea World, Australia Fair shopping centre and bus routes close by. We had a car but my daughter uses the bus service frequently.
I had to select October 2011 in the "When did you travel" as it didn't give me the option to put the real dates of our stay which was in August for 11 nights.

Room Tip: All the apartments face north so you will enjoy a light filled apartment with plenty of balcony spac...
