Reviewed May 24, 2014

We love this nice place. Our family booked a 2-bedroom apartment. Spacious rooms, private, family friendly, fully equipped kitchen, laundry and bathrooms. The swimming pool is a good places for kids to play, Staff are nice and friendly. A Good experience for us. :)

Room Tip: Top floor is very good for family privacy and good views.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment over Mothers Day weekend. Don, the owner, is a hoot. The apartment was HUGE and very clean. Only a short walk to the beach. The pool is a walk in with sand at one end. There is a large selection of books and magazines to read, which was great.

3rd time I have stayed here and once again was absolutely brilliant. Never crowded, huge spacious 3 bedroom apartment (have stayed in 2 bedroom as well). Pool and BBQ area is always immaculate and enjoyed a few nights by the pool having BBQ and a few drinks. Had two other groups with us and their rooms were awesome as well - bit flasher than ours.
I have teenage daughters who loved the pool and the fact that not many 'little' kids.
Reception staff always helpful and keen to have a laugh with you - nothing is a problem.
Would highly recommend and can't wait to get back here again.
Would never stay anywhere else on the Gold Coast.

Really enjoyed this place. We had our own two bedroom apartment. However one room was locked which was strange but it didn't matter as I came with my significant other. As most of the apartments are owned by other people you do need to look after the items. It seems people also live there on a permant basis.

I took a walk around the pool and was surprised at how open the setting is, I could see into other people's apartments and of course you can hear everything since the sounds bounced off the buildings.

You only get 14 Foxtel channels. Yet you can get normal tv. Other then that it was a great experience and I hope to book into the same apartment next time I am visiting the Gold Coast.

Good for families but that's about all. Zero privacy if that's a consideration. Great pool, kids and mums and dads seem to like it. The units themselves were ok, not the cleanest place I've ever been (there were paddle pops in the freezer), but comfortable enough. Given the options, I probably wouldn't stay again

Stayed for a night on 21 December in a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms are dated (especially the beds) but considering we stayed at the height of peak season, we can't complain for the price we paid. We had a balcony with a view of the beautiful resort pool.The location is ok - walking distance to a patrolled beach and a few restaurants.and only a couple of minutes drive to Broadbeach.

If you are looking for 5 star accommodation, this is not the resort for you. If you are looking for a clean, good value self-contained apartment with a lovely pool located away from the hustle and bustle of Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise then this place is worth keeping in mind.

If you want to be away from the crowds and noise of Surfer's Paradise this is a good choice, easy to reach along The Gold Coast Highway.

We arrived after 3pm on a Saturday, the reception was closed but a phone call and instructions in the safe made for easy access to our Town House. We were very pleased to have a lock up garage with internal access. Lounge come kitchen area opened onto the back garden with a short walk through the gardens to the lovely pool and BBQ area. Great for families. Queen bed and ensuite, a seperate bathrom and toilet and a twin bedroom. The kitchen was adequately fitted out, you have to be self sufficent , a few tea bags only.

Many rules and regulations so make sure you read the Welcome info sheet.

The ensuite was small , needs a make over and repairs to a rusty edge. The bathroom with bath was ok but again could do with updating. The bed comfortable . We prefer to have windows open and fans on so we were disturbed during the night by returning guests, as we were on a corner of the internal road. On the whole I think the town house could be up-dated, but we did enjoy our stay and would go again.

Recommend for families as you have all the mod cons, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher etc. We did not go to the beach but I gather it is about 600m across the highway.
