Booked 3 days prior on a spontaneous whim with some friends, over the ANZAC long weekend as well. Pricing was great, amazing location (about 10 mins stroll from Cavill Ave) and a clean, spacious apartment. We asked for late checkout at the 11th hour and there was no problem and no extra charge. So appreciative! If you're after a decent... More

Me and my workmate stayed days in a 2 bedroom unit for 10 days. No room service at all. We ended up washing the beddings ourselves in such a busy time. Location is good. Walking distance to Woolies, Coles, beach and Surfers Paradise town centre.

B) Price-Tag in everything and every corner (Photo enlcosed) When you entered the apartment, you will see price-tag on every single items and everywhere. In order to protect our interest, we have conducted... More

3 friends and I rented an apartment for a few weeks and we're working in the are. Just four young girls who were polite and quiet and wanted to save up some money and not cause a fuss. The manager was constantly coming to our apartment, telling us to brush up outside, saying we were messy, blaming us when the... More

Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which had a really strong odour. We had to open all the windows and doors, and occasionally run out of the apartment to have some fresh air. Since our accommodation was right opposite a backpacker's resort, it was hard to fall asleep as there was screaming and booming music. The use of... More

The unit was very dirty, food stuck to walls, food under the bed. The television didnt work. When we reported it to reception we were... More

Just in the week being here at schoolies I have had an amazing time. I think the amazing time was mainly because of the staff that work here. This includs the security and the front desk staff.

We recently decided to stay in Surfers Paradise for a couple of nights, and what a pleasant surprise. Our host Erika was such a friendly and helpful person who went out of her way to make sure we were happy with everything.
