Our stay at The Penthouses was just perfect. From the initial contact in making the booking with Carol, right through to our departure, the service she provided was faultless. She was always available to provide local advice & assist us with any requests, with a happy, calm, considerate and efficient manner. The location was great, a 15min walk to the...

I stayed at The Penthouses with my school netball team that I coach in July 2015. We stayed for a total of 8 nights and we were more than impressed upon arrival at both our apartment rooms. We booked two 3 bedroom apartments that were beautifully fitted and had spectacular views of the ocean and the city. I mean full...

The Penthouse Apartments experience was outstanding. Our 3 bedroom apartment was extremely large, with really good facilities. 2 balconies faced directly onto the beach. There was plenty to do with a swimming pool, spa, games room & the beach all together on the property.

The Penthouses offers one of the best ocean view experiences on the Gold Coast. There's no need to even leave the apartment to experience the crashing surf, the magnificent sunrises, the sun sparkling on the water! Our family of six found the apartment comfortable and spacious. Just some minor maintenance is needed, and extra blankets and pillows would be nice....

We just spent an excellent long weekend at The Penthouses for our annual autumn/winter escape to watch the Pies v Suns. This year it coincided with the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival - another excellent excuse for a trip up north. We returned to The Penthouses due to the incredible service we received from Carol and her team last year,...

We had a dreadful experience at the Penthouses. Whilst the location is terrific, we had the misfortune of being given an unrenovated apartment that was worse than 2 stars. Some of the upholstery on the furniture was ripped, the cushions were stained, the ceiling fans were broken, the kitchen laminate had holes in it, some doors wouldn't close, knobs on...

We stayed here for two weeks with a family of five and I was really surprised with the size of the apartment and the stunning location, beautiful beach views. We come from a rural location and hate traffic noise and that was one thing I was dreading, but even with master bedroom facing the street side we didn't hear one...

The location is right on the beach so we just needed to go downstairs and out the back. It's a bit of a walk from the main shopping strip but doable. Coffee shops within 10min walking distance. The apartment has 3 bedrooms, one of which has two bunk beds. The master on suite's toilet was not in top shape but...

We stayed in apartment No. 14 for 5 nights late August 2014 and it was fantastic. Such a great location and right on the beach - just walk out through the back gate onto the beach - so nice for walking in the mornings. The apartment was massive - so big and well laid out. We had an enormous deck...
