“Great value for money, no complaints”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

We come with a Cudo voucher but even paying at normal price I believe it's still good value for a self-service 2 bedda. It feels like home as it has all kitchen, laundry facility and security car park. Despite minor issue the entire apartment is clean and tidy. We brought our own laundry powder but found that the owner is quite mindful and has small sachet of laundry liquid, dish washing liquid that's enough for our whole 5 days stay. The pool and spa open from 7am - 9pm and there's a covered outdoor bbq/cooking area next to it. All in all our family were very satisfied with the stay.

Room Tip: we stayed in middle floor and as others mentioned asked for one with good curtain, can't think o...

I looked on the internet for a long time trying to find a decent 2 bedroom apartment that was close and economical that had air conditioning in the gold coast and this was perfect for us. The owner was fantastic and helped us.

The beach was walking distance and SeaWorld is 5 mins in car. Main Beach is really lovely and you can go for a walk and fine lots of restaurants nearby and convenience stores. Heaps of foxtel channels! The pool and eating area and garden were really tidy and perfect. Having the dishwasher and washing machine was handy too. This apartment had air con and that is hard to find in the gold coast for some strange reason and it had ceiling fans and 2 balconies to let the wind go straight through the middle of the apartment.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs ask for the bottom floor - although you won't get the great view fr...

Reviewed 11 November 2013

Having stayed in similar places before, our expectations were not high, but the location and reviews lead us to believe that this was a good choice. Wrong. The apartment was filthy with dust on nearly every surface (my wife wanted to leave straight as soon as we walked in), toilets stained (looked like they didn't know how to use that toilet brush), mold in the bathroom, and all tiled floors sticky to the touch (two cleans with bleach was required to remove the stickiness). After a thorough self-clean (with our own cleaning products that we had to purchase) we hoped that things would improve, however we found the beds extremely uncomfortable (we ended up sleeping on the sofa!) and the facilities generally run down. Bathroom tiles are coming off the wall (grout cracks etc), and the both bathroom cabinets had their doors falling off their hinges and would not shut. Carpet was stained (someone else's food by the look of it), and it was quite apparent that no one had ever moved the sofa to vacuum.

Noise is not good as this complex uses plasterboard dividing walls so the noise of other people travels a fair bit (our "neighbors" sat on their balcony smoking until 2am one morning, and thought that their voices did not carry. Wrong again!). Also note that the complex takes "self service" to the absolute extreme: there was only one roll of toilet paper when we arrived (need to go shopping quick!) and only one dishwasher tablet (so be prepared to pay Tedder Avenue prices to avoid the $50 cleaning fine that they threaten you with!). Towels and linen is worn and old too. Yes, it is close to everything, but given that the Main Beach area is spoilt for choice I would strongly recommend that you look elsewhere. My wife has still not forgiven me for booking this.

Room Tip: Try somewhere else.

We had VIP passes for the theme parks so came back for another few days in the Easter school holidays. Excellent accommodation, easy walk to the beach, restaurants and short drive to SeaWorld. Had dryer, washing machine and bath tub, essential for littlies. Also self-contained kitchen and ensuite for the parents. Very clean and comfortable. Pool just outside our door.

we just returned from a 10 day stay at Chidori.family of 5 (2 adults, 2teenagers and 5yrs )we all had a ball. 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious a bit old looking with the cane furniture but comfortable. we found the beds to be very hard but with using the extra blankets underneath made them softer. the apartment was clean and was equipped with everything you need to cook a meal for the family or just make a light meal or snack. we brought vouchers for our stay and would return again. thanx for help making our stay a good one.hoping to return again soon.

Family of four stayed for 5 nights in spring school holidays. The décor of the apartment was a bit dated but it was large clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic. It's three minute walk to beautiful Main Beach and 5 minute drive to SeaWorld and easy access to the freeway for the other theme parks. The main bedroom had an ensuite so we had two toilets and showers and an internal laundry with washer and dryer. It has air con and fans in both bedrooms. The kids loved the pool and spa. The staff were all helpful. We had an enjoyable stay and would recommend.
