We spent 5 nights at Smugglers in a 2br apartment with our 3 young kids and simply cannot fault a thing. Extremely well thought out apartments, clean, comfortable with everything we needed to self cater and enjoy our stay. A real standout was the gorgeous pool and bbq area, our kids just loved swimming there, pretty much all day every... More

This is kind of place you wish you could keep secret. The location is awesome for a relaxing stay in Coffs Harbour. It’s a short drive out of town but is perfect for those wanting to stay in a self-contained villa by the ocean. The apartment was well equipped, clean and spacious and overlooked the pool / bbq area. Being... More

As ex Coffs residents we return every few years to catch up with friends. We have stayed in other resorts north of Coffs, but give Smuggles a go a few years back, knowing that the beach was next door, you are away from Pacific Highway noice and you have the benefit of a full apartment. We stayed 3 nights and... More

After 8 nights here it will still be hard to leave. Very comfortable apartment, amazing value, if being 'picky' would suggest an update of kitchen equipment, but everything worked! The apartment overlooks beautiful well maintained tropical gardens, and a pool with sun beds, umbrellas and bbq facilities, second to none. Can sit on balcony overlooking gardens and hear the waves... More

We absolutely loved our holiday at Smugglers on the beach, the location was perfect (2 min walk to Korora Beach, 10min drive to the heart of Coffs) and the 2 bedroom apartment was large, spacious and clean. In particular we loved using the poolside BBQ for dinners, it was extremely well equipt and was lovely to cook and eat by... More

This place offers everything for a family. We stayed in a 2 bed spa apartment. The room was spacious and clean with private balcony. The property offers pool and outdoor BBQ facilities that include all equipment such as utensils, BBQ utensils, crockery and items for cleanup. The property backs directly onto Korora beach - a quiet, unpatrolled pebble beach. A... More

Excellent accommodation for a family. Lots of room that is also clean and tidy. Absolute privacy. Wonderful gardens. Very relaxing (yes even with kids). Only thing that can be improved is the wifi, we couldn't get connection at all. Rave about this place, reluctant to put in a review of fear that it will be discovered and we can't book... More

12 people 4 rooms and an extremely wonderful experience, plenty of space, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff from the initial enquiry to the time we booked out, rooms plenty big enough, close to everything, beach just a stones throw away amenities clean and the gardens/pool area were beautiful, highly recommended. Thanks Smugglers we will be back :)

Our first time here and what a super place. Large rooms, very clean, lovely gardens and pool area and right on the beach with a very quiet street. The bbq pool area was excellent and not too many rooms at the complex. Thanks to Sandy and staff also. Suzi & Tony

Simple and nice. And good value for $. The place, when first entering was like your run of the mill motel look. There was a "home-like" feel to it ... in a positive way. But when it got dark and you turned on the lights -- thats where the room took on an entirely new classy look. They really did... More
