We stayed in an Executive 2 bedroom apartment on 25th floor - views were amazing. Had a slight hiccup when first arrived at night as either I hadn't read the instructions correctly or weren't supplied - but didn't have pin for key drop box. Fixed quickly with a phone call though. Found out we were on wrong floor (6th) the next morning when queried where the air con was. Promptly offered to move us to 25th which we accepted. Kids loved the inside swimming pool. Building felt very safe with underground car park and keys required to access all areas. Grounds were awesome, but too cold for us to enjoy it. Would come back again. Apartment great furniture and clean. Kitchen well appointed, with everything needed for a family. Balcony around front of whole apartment was awesome.

Have stayed at various Gold Coast apartments over the years and our stay at Contessa was the best. Our apartment on the 17th floor was spotlessly clean (not just average holiday rental clean), had incredible views, was beautifully decorated with modern furniture and appliances. It had two very large bedrooms and two immacutely clean, modern bathrooms. The living area was large and the kitchen had lots of little extras you don't usually find in a holiday apartment. There were lovely extras like novels to read, dvds to watch etc. Contessa is set in a beautiful garden with a wonderful outdoor pool surrounded by lovely green lawn (which our 10 yo daughter never wanted to get out of). There is also an indoor heated pool for cooler days, and nice public areas. It backs onto a river and is a very short walk (2-3min) to a patrolled beach. The gorgeous shops and restaurants of Main Beach are only a 5min stroll away and there is a bus stop very close by. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Main Beach is the elegant & calm area of the Gold Coast and Contessa fits in beautifully in this area. Sea World is 5min by bus to the north and Cavill Ave (Surfers) is 5 min to the south. You couldn't pick a better location. We think Contessa is a wonderful place to stay.
