Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment here for 5 nights. It was perfect. Well appointed and sparklingly clean and right across the street from one of the best beaches on the Gold Coast. The staff were wonderfully helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Spacious, incredibly well appointed & every balcony with a seaview - wow, beat that! We absolutely loved this place & would return without hesitation. Great value for money as two couples, with a fantastic beach & amenities just across the road. A 10 minute walk & you're in the heart of Coolangatta, if you want things alot busier. Otherwise, enjoy...

There's plenty of room should you wish to swing a cat. The finishes are perfect and the appartments are well situated to take advantage of the restaurants and bars in Coolangatta.

We needed to get away for the weekend, but as it was Schoolies week our options were limited. I came across Nirvana and booked it straight away and it was an excellent move! Coolangatta is now one of our favourite destinations, far from the hustle and bustle of Surfers P with stunning beaches and great cafes. Our 2 bed apartment...

Apartment was amazing, the views from all rooms down to Kirra beach and headland are breath taking and something that is impossible to get bored with. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. Only (nit picking) downsides are they don't provide beach towels in the flat ($5 per towel per stay) and the wifi is very slow.
