Probably one of the the nicest parts of 17 mile drive with the endless beach and very nice, small and very expensive shops. Houses are all architectural masterpieces especially the ones with the great ocean view.

I recently stayed at Carmel By the Sea when on holiday for my 30th birthday. The pros - the pool, the tennis court and the size of the apartments are fantastic. Location is wonderful, a 10 minute walk to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, a few minutes to the beach, and less than an hour to Surfers Paradise. Staff also let...

Bryce thank you for your review of Carmel by the Sea. I'm sorry to hear you felt the decor of the apartment you stayed in was dated. As each apartment is individually owned, there is variation in styling. Usually this means that there will be a style to suit everyone. Next time you visit, let our reservations team know what...

Long weekend here and found the place fantastic. Super friendly staff and well appointed room. Uninterrupted views of the sea from the balcony to watch the migrating whales and general beach life. Park across the road but best of all a pool area that is bathed in afternoon sun. Highly recommended.
