Excellent location close to patrolled beach and Tedder Ave, whilst an easy walk to Surfers Paradise and Marina Mirage. Apartment suitable for our needs, great view and well fitted out. Helpful friendly managers, exceptionally well maintained gardens, building, pool and tennis court. Will return.

What a beautiful property. Spacious and clean, well fitted and the best garden and pool area on the coast. Walking distance Tedder Avenue and the Tram into Surfers if you need it for shopping. We have stayed here many times. We have tyried others but we really can't go past this place.

David and Jan at Contessa are always so helpful and a pleasure to stay with. The units are always presented in a spotless condition and well furnished throughout.. The pool area is always inviting and crystal clear water in the large pool.

Contessa Holiday Apartments are the only place we will stay not only for the GC 600 but for any type of getaway. We highly recommend Contessa. David and Jan are the best hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The apartment itself was perfect with everything provided, very clean and spacious. We will definitely be back again next year.

Only one complaint is we were stuffed around a bit with our parking, but apart from that great place, great location. Staff were helpful, we did go at GC 600 time so we did find the security passes in and out of the complex expensive on top of what we had already paid, I think this was out of Countesses...

Hello Scott, thanks for your great comments. Yes you are correct, a difficult time at Contessa for the car races. The whole area is under the control of the race organisers.
