The welcome from reception and all staff was so good, we will not look anywhere else in this area. The unit was clean and very - very well fitted out with genreous supplies of utensils for self catering. Barbque area by swimming pool is well supplied and clean. All this and only 70 metes walk to the beach.

We were astounded by the size of the 3 bedroom apartment. It was huge, spacious and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to eat in house when we chose to. It's in a nice spot on the beach and it's a nice quiet area, so we were really happy there. It's a couple of kms from Coffs... More

We stayed here in June, the weather was beautiful for Winter. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, fully furnished with cooking facilities. This unit (no. 12) could accommodate 6 people and had lovely views of swaying palm trees and the pool area which looked very inviting. Very clean and spacious. My only small complaint was the lights from the... More

Smuggler's is better than it looks in the photos. Spacious unit with spa bath and well appointed kitchen. Quiet location and best of all you can hear the ocean from the unit. Just a 2 minute walk through the gardens to a small secluded beach. The manager is friendly and helpful so overall this is a top place to stay...wish... More

Fantastic central location less tha 1K from the Big Banana. Amazing views, beach access, fantastic facilities. Our unit was tastefully decorated, spacious and comfortable with a lovely, covered al fresco area with bbq and outdoor furniture. Everything was fresh and very clean. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, I will certainly be back.

Coffs Harbour is ideally located for a stop over when travelling from Sydney to Brisbane, but it's hard to find outstanding accommodation. After a couple of disappointing experiences with some of the mega resorts(including one which required a mountain goat's resilience to mount the staircase from the carpark to the apartment ...no lift!) I found Smugglers on the Web (no,... More

We stayed 2 nights and loved the place. Far enough out of Coffs to be quiet and relaxed but close enough that driving in took about 7minutes. As close to the beach as you can get, friendly staff, large rooms that are clean and nicely fitted out. Good facilities like a full laundry, clothes line, beautiful pool + spa. amazing... More
