What our happy guests are saying about their holidays with us!

“Columbia Apartments”

“I had weekend away at Columbia Apartments rainbow bay for my sisters birthday and it was absolutely fantastic. The views were amazing. Our unit was clean and tidy. It had everything we needed. The staff were friendly. I will definitely be back.”

“Location, location, location”

“Really good location, from across the road from rainbow bay. Phenomenal views of both the beach and of the Gold Coast. You get your own underground parking spot, which is helpful. Would defiantly stay again.”

“Excellent Apartments… Fantastic Location!”

“We have just come home from a very relaxing and successful Family holiday (20 of us) at the Columbia Apartments.

Right from the day we booked we experienced friendly helpful service which continued during our stay.Our apartment was excellent and also represented good value compared to similar accommodation here in NZ.

The location is superb and being on the 17th floor we had a great view of both the sea and the Whales/Dolphins passing by. I can highly recommend the Columbia as an excellent place to stay.”

“Fantastic Place”

“We have been staying at Columbia apartments for several years now and will continue in the future. We really enjoy the location, view, quality of the apartments and the easy of dealing with the managers. Thank you once again.”

“Sensational Stay”

“Fabulous location, sensational beach across the road…fully equipped apartments… comfortable beds/furniture… short stroll to the Coolangatta shopping/restaurant precinct. No problems with late/early check in/out times. Pool lovely and clean… would definitely stay there again!”

“A view to die for….relaxing and very family friendly.”

“Having stayed at numerous hotels in Rainbow Bay/Coolangatta over the years, we were very surprised by how wonderful our stay was at Columbia. Given the age of the building, we assumed it would be run down, however our room was wonderful. We paid extra to have a superior room and it was certainly worth it. Not only was it clean and modern, the appliances, utensils and furniture were all excellent.

The view was out of this world! Watching whales whilst doing the dishes was a first for me… and it made the chore quite enjoyable!

The location of this property is perfect. Across the road from the beach, park and Surf Life Saving Club…and only minutes away from the shops at both Coolangatta and Tweed Heads. We hired a car, but won’t bother for out next stay because everything we needed is so close.

The pool is a great size and temperature is spot on. There is a toddlers pool as well, which is great for the young ones.

The management are very friendly and accommodating and have done a wonderful job at keeping the hotel clean and functional.

Our only issue was the lack of a BBQ area on-site which we were told was a body corporate rule. (no gas allowed). We ended up buying a cheap electric BBQ which was just as good and there are also public BBQs located across the road, along the beach.

We are already arranging our next stay at Columbia and can’t wait to return.”
