Karana Palms Resort, Surfers Paradise
My fault for not reading the fine print when I booked cos the room had no air conditioning (that’s because it was less than $100.). So you get what you pay for. Good location- close to Cavill St and most of all - Free Parking.

Convenient location to HOTA or Surfers
Needed somewhere to stay when going to an event at HOTA. Great location for this. Surprised to find office unattended just after 5pm but quick call to number on wall (not the mobile on the door) and was able to get key from key safe. Good undercover parking (big car spaces). Apartment was clean but the fan controller in the bedroom was pretty much ripped off the wall. Took a very quick photo in case we were blamed. Neither bedside light in bedroom worked and locks on verandah screen doors couldn't be locked but apart from that room was all that we needed. Comfy bed, clean sheets and towels.

Surfers - but not!
Self contained in an excellent position away fro the craziness that is Surfers yet close to the shops - the island also has a small strip with lots of eating options

Review of stay at Karana Palms Chevron Island QLD
This little place is a real gem, close to all shopping and not that far from attractions, price is reasonable, and apartments are roomy, a must look at if you wish to stay short or long term on chevron island
