“Clean & Basic, but just what we needed. Close to surfers but a quiet location”
Reviewed October 16, 2010

Very Clean rooms, with austar and airconditioning. Separate bedroom. Only a 10 minute walk into surfers paradise. Excellent room for the price we paid. My partner had to entertain himself while I was at a conference during the day and he was quiet happy to hang out at the apartment and watch tv all day. Sometimes you can't wait to get out of these places. Staff were always friendly and helpful and helped us by booking airport shuttles. Apartment was just like the online photos

I always have a ball when I stay at Paradise it is just that PARADISE, very affordable for someone who needs to count the cost, walk to Surfers Paradise and the beach a great centre with lovely restaurants. Pristine accomodation never need anything better

I decided to book this place and take a bit of risk because there weren't many reviews on here at the time and Paradise Isles was largely unheard of.

Overall I am really pleased with my choice and it was a great deal for travellers on a budget compared to staying near the beach, especially many places on the beach have very mixed reviews.

Paradise Isles is a smaller and peaceful complex on Chevron Island (no viewed unfortunately) that is apartment styled (individual owners) very similar to many other places on the gold coast. The apartment we had was facing other low rise buildings. It was clean and spacious (well appointed, but not modern) with all the laundry and kitchen facilities you need. Our apartment had Austar but standard TV.

Just to take note, as these are essentially timeshare apartment style accommodation you need to bring almost everything yourself including detergents and soap etc. But as most people visiting the gold coast will have a car, it's really just a short trip to the supermarkets. On that note the secure underground carpark (complementary) is very good.

We wanted to use the sofa bed so front desk was very helpful in providing extra sheets and blankets (it was alittle chilly in June). Although we were told that as the apartments were individually owned, they usually only provide what comes in the place itself.

The walk from Chevron Island to surfer's main spots is definitely doable, but I would still recommend driving in and finding a parking if you can.

All in all a good stay there for us. My girlfriend later visited Paradise Isles again later in the year with equally pleasant experience. Next time? We will probably choose an ocean view accommodation, just to try something else and make the most of the great beaches.

Went there on my honeymoon, my wife and i had a wonderful time. The people there were always helpful, the rooms were clean and tidy and we really enjoyed our stay and would deffinatly go back there. One of the greatest things is that even the it in the middle of surfers paradise if was out of the way enough to be quiet and peaceful. Thanks heaps guys

A little gem of a place, tucked away in a quiet suburb on Chevron Island its not flashy but has everything you should need in your s/c apt, is superbly kept and amazing value. The biggest bonus for me was the peace and quiet yet there are local shops and food outlets just a few minutes walk away and the main drag of Surfers and the beach are about ten minutes walk, you just don't get the noise, lights and premium prices. Loved it and will be back to stay there in January.

Paradise Isles has clean modern self contained apartments where you can relax in front of the TV or in the pool or hot spa after a day at the Gold Coast shops or exploring the Gold Coast. So handy to everything, you can walk to Surfers and stroll back for a coffee at Chevron Village no parking hassles. Friendly staff were very helpful. Might have to make it back for a third stay.
