Chevron Residence

From the airport we were heading straight to accommodation at Chevron Residence. It is located at Surfer Paradise area. The journey from airport was about 20 minutes by transfer coach.


Photo taken in front Chevron Residence check-in counter

We arrive quite late. It was past nine o'clock at night and with nobody manning the check-in counter. But they have a systematic arrangement whereby the room key was available from the mail box located near the check-in counter.
