Great location (north of the hustle and bustle that is Surfers), great facilities (indoor and outdoor pools) and great apartments (well appointed, spacious, neat and clean). We would definitely stay here again!

This was our first holiday to Queensland. We were very happy with the Contessa. The apartment was clean, neat and very comfortable. There was lots of room and the view was lovely as we over looked the pool and garden and could see the beach. Everything was so close to us, so it made it easy to go out for...

The apartments may be a bit dated but older means larger, much more spacious rooms, good old quality fittings and marble tiling. The up side is the beautiful grounds and pool/pool area. This is such a feature of the place and provides guests with a really perfect environment to holiday in. Rarely do you find such a setting on the...

We stayed in March 2015 in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a great size with lovely views. The pool was awesome and it is a short easy walk to the beach. There is a small village shopping type area a few minutes walk away too. We'd start again.

A really comfortable condominium in close proximity to the beach and the cafes of Tedder Avenue. Away from the hustle and bustle of Broadbeach, but still within 10 to 15 minutes drive to that, and Pacific Fair. Strongly recommend for easy holiday for family, or those just wanted a peaceful few days.

After holidaying faithfully on the North Coast for the passed 20 yrs our family hesitantly ventured south to Contessa in November of 2014 to escape G20 in Brisbane. We stayed for 3 nights & 4 days & were totally impressed with the apartment, facilities & location. Highlights for us were the spacious & comfy lounge room. Another thing Contessa offered...

The apartment was spacious and comfortable for 6 adults. We had three bedrooms, two bathrooms. The living area had a view out to the sea. It is a short walk to the beach and also to local shops and cafés with a range of food options. Plus the kitchen is well equipped to cook at the apartment also.
