Arrived at resort late afternoon, check in quick and efficient. This is not a serviced apartment. We had a parking space in the basement and we had use of a luggage trolley to take to our apartment so only one trip is required from car. Opened door to a bright and spacious apartment with views to the ocean and pool.... More

On 27 Apr 2016, travelled from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise, along the way dropped by Rainbow Bay. From the Pacific Ocean, strong wind blew, strong waves hit on its shore. Little people at the beach. It's also a site whereby enemies sunk few vessels during World War II. Monument to glorify the bravery of the Australian men and women who... More

Nice accommodation and lovely location. Bed very comfortable and loved the large balcony. Only negative was the early check out of 9am. I have never stayed somewhere with such an early check out. It was a rainy Sunday morning and it was the last thing we wanted to do to get out early. Another couple in the lift felt the... More

Great spot. Welcoming hosts who were happy to store bags when we arrived early and the surf was calling. Rooms and apartment immaculate. Well appointed and spacious 2 brm apartment with huge balcony. Easy walks to supermarket, restaurants and great cafes. Close to key surf breaks and swimming beaches within a 10 minute walk. All the mod cons needed and... More

We stayed here in July 2015 for a few nights and it was a great stay. We had a 2 bedroom apartment that was huge and it was a shame it was only the two of us there. The view of the coast was pretty good even though partly obstructed by another building but that happens. Parking underground was easy... More

Room was clean and tidy. Had everything we needed. There was construction across the road but we had doors and blinds closed and we didn't get woken by it. Kids loved the pool and big fan of the bbq area and sink to wash up before taking our stuff back upstairs. Enjoyed our time away.

We are glad that the apartment met most of your expectations. We are located on a hill which the majority of our guests have no issue with. As you mentioned it is flat if you enter and exit through the car park. Cafes, shops and Malls are all within walking distance. The apartment would have cooled down quicker and worked... More
