Will definately be back. Great value. Only a short stroll to the surf club, bowling club and Hoey Moey's. Relaxed spacious cottage atmosphere, with aircon, verandah, full sized kitchen and Austar. Much more than a sparce cabin. Second room would benefit from ceiling fan, but pedestal fan provided sufficed.

We stayed here with two kids for 3 nights and were wishing we'd booked a few more nights. The cabins are very clean, comfortable and have ample space. There are only 7 villas in the complex making it a quiet place to stay. The location is great - walking distance to the beach and quite a few good eating places.... More

Janette and Graham who manage this establishment couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Upon arrival Janette give us maps, tourist information with suggestions on where to go for meals and attractions to see. The cabins would have to be the most spacious and well appointed we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in many over the years) and spotlessly clean.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights after originally booking a motel on the highway. Heavy traffic and lots of noise had us looking elsewhere and we found this little gem down near Park Beach. Only 6 units and all with off street parking. Great location close to the beach, bowling club and local pub.

We just recently spent some time at Coffs Harbour and chose the Dolphin Sands as our accommodation. There were 7 of us (4 adults and 3 children) and the villa we stayed in had plenty of room for all of us. It was clean, cosy and affordable. And its proximity to the beach and places to eat was ideal. We... More

We booked for three days and have to cut short our stay due to non working wi fi internet. My kids needed very badly to submit their uni assignment. No top up of tea coffee and no replacement of wet towels despite wet weather and no drier.

This was a very pleasant surprise. A two bedroom chalet which was surprisingly spacious. It's in a small complex of seven chalets, a short walk from the beach. The chalet was equipped with everything we needed, and there was a laundry on site. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about things to do and places to see. Wished we'd had... More

Great friendly service was provided. We were greeted by the owners and they were more than happy to assist in our needs. We booked the accessible cabin and my mother who is extremely fussy could not stop saying how great the place was. As a person with limited movement she found the bathroom fantastic, it was not slippery (her greatest... More
