What the residents say -

As a resident at the Island Quays Apartment complex for over 3 years I can honestly say that it's really a friendly community atmosphere living here. It's well managed. The Kawana island facilities are great and yet close to everything you need within 10 minutes drive away. I recommend Island Quays to any potential residents.

The complex grounds always look immaculate. The managers run a very tight ship, but remain friendly and personable, and are always happy to help.

Steve Hunt

Island Quays has been my home for over 18 months now and I could live here forever. The property is the right size to have privacy and yet has fantastic facilities, eg, manicured lawns and gardens, pool, lap pool and spa which are always clean and extremely well maintained. The management are very friendly and run the complex so efficiently, nothing is too much trouble.

The Tennis Court is a big bonus for me. I thoroughly enjoy playing tennis with friends and other residents, both during the day and at night-time under lights (when it is a bit cooler). It's wonderful!!

Island Quays is a luxury relaxing complex, friendly occupants and it’s management obviously have worked hard to make our occupancy…like living in paradise!
