Although there was no-one at Reception when we arrived, there was a friendly note, key and everything that we needed to know. My home is immaculate, so I have high expectations. Smugglers on the Beach exceeded our expectations. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. The BBQ area and pool were pristine and grounds well maintained. Free laundry usage with everything that...

We were travelling with 3 older children/ teenagers for a family holiday and really wanted enough space for them to be comfortable and happy. Lots of places are not designed for three kids, and we didn't want to spend a week cramped up with kids sleeping on folding beds in our room. We chose the three bedroom apartment which was... More

Clean, spacious and well fitted out apartments. Felt really comfortable here. Good quality furniture and backing onto the beach. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Quiet location which suited us.

Our room was lovely. Spacious, clean, contempory decor, open plan with a beautiful outlook onto the well landscaped pool. The staff were very friendly, polite and welcoming. The beach was only a 2 min walk from our door. I know my family and I will return to Smugglers on the Beach in the future. Thank you to everyone at 'Smugglers'... More

I was traveling to Coffs for a family wedding and even prior to my arrival I was most impressed with the outstanding service of the staff, special mention to Nissa. I was assisted with dinner venues, hair and makeup company's, room arrangements for family. On arrival the 2 bedroom spa apartment was spacious (huge) the outlook was gorgeous, everthing was...

We had to get a taxi to Jetty Beach knowing we would have a drink. $20 each way but safer. Takes 10 minutes. The place is only a stroll to the beach. Sapphire beach is walkable from your accommodation. Would suit older couples or families as it was so quiet.

We had a lovely short family break. We come down this way every year. This was our first time staying here but we will definitely be coming back. It was beautiful close to the beach & close to Coffs Harbour

We stayed for nights/5 days but realistically could have spent a couple of days here. There isn't a great deal to do in Coffs and this place is more basic than the 4.5 rating we read on line. Honestly it's more likely a 3, a little dated tbh but their are pluses? Staff are super lovely, the pool is heated... More

A bit north of Coffs but lovely and quiet and comfortable stay! Close to the beach and the sound of waves to relax to. The owner was very friendly and helpful with local information. Is an apartment so would suit a stay for a few days to make meals in the kitchen, but a little drive or cab to local... More

A self contained apartment by the beautiful Korora Beach. Waking up to the waves splashing against the sand. Spacious living with comfortable beds especially after a weekend celebrating a wedding. And affirdable! Loved it.
