We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. It was a home away from home. Deb was very welcoming and friendly. There are 7 of us and there was lots of room to spread out and relax. The pool was clean and refreshing. The kitchen was clean and equipped if we chose to cook ourselves, which we did. Although we didn't... More

We stayed at Sunseekers Jan - Feb and had a great time. We were originally staying 7 days but extended for another 3 weeks. Really nice rooms, just what we were looking for- affordable, clean, spacious, comfy with good facilities. Pool and games room with free DVDs were a big bonus. Great location near the beach and walking distance to... More

NB- My original comments made on 12 Nov 2013 somehow disappeared from this forum? After contacting trip advisor they were kind enough to supply my original post. After my original post I received a call from the manager Deb. After her explaining that she had the place examined by a 'blue light' from pest company. I was told that my... More

Pool was the only good thing and it was big. Overall place is very old and not comfortable with old couch and old bathroom and dirty carpet in the unit. Carpark very dangerous for guests. At least the beach was close a 2 minute walk but to the back beach.

Well equipped small resort in the heart of Coffs Harbour, very close to the beach, great amenities like bbq area or swimming pool. I strongly recommend to either those who just need an overnight stay as well as for those who need something for holidays.
