Really spacious and clean apartments. We absolutely loved the views and having 3 children with us loved having the space so that we weren't all on top of each other. Really loved the indoor spa it was great for the kids. 15 minutes walk to Cavill avenue and approx 20 minutes drive to the theme parks the location is ideal.... More

The view of the beach is so beautiful and watching the whales and dolphins one of the highlights. The apartment itself was good for a week and for the price we can't complain. The spa is huge and very relaxing after a long day at the theme parks. Brenda and Steve are wonderful very helpful and friendly. The only downside... More

No aircon, no TV, no WIFI. Does that sound like the ideal start to a family holiday? Aftercare service? Unhelpful ... can't do anything ... in other words, no care at all. The apartment obviously wasn't checked before leasing out. An airial stuck together with sticky tape and of course it doesn't work. I would not recommend Capricorn One to... More

This place is by far the best location to view the Queensland 600 and Steve and Brenda are great people. The rooms whilst showing their age are clean and spacious with comfy beds. The Kitchens are well appointed that cater for your cooking needs.

The apartment was an average one with the price that we paid. They don't provide ironing facility and hair dryers. Otherwise they provide dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. We had to shop for every single thing eg. toilet rolls, laundry liquid, dishwashing liquid, rubbish bag, dishwashing liquids, hair shampoo, body shampoo etc. We expected that the basic things will be...

Spacious apartment with excellent view! Some areas and amenities of the apartment were old but overall it was clean and beds were comfortable. Pleasant 15-20 mins walk along the beach to the center of Surfers Paradise. Location of the apartment is easily accessible to most major tourist attractions by car. Bring your own toiletries and extra toilet rolls if needed.... More

We stayed here for a week with a family four and another family of two on the 18th floor. The views were stunning although directly out the front at the moment they are doing significant work on the sand dunes as well getting ready for the V8 race in October. There are only two apartments per floor so we had... More

A special deal came through via email and the pics looked awesome, and as we were heading to Brisbane anyway we decided to give ourselves a treat... when we walked into the room, we realised it wasn't so much a 'treat' as opposed to being treated for worms! Filthy windows that were badly silicone shut, old décor, a horrendously outdated... More
