Just spent 3 nights in a unit in The Sands Resort. Wow what a spot! We had a 3rd floor apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We had views that were wonderful looking out over the ocean of Pippi Beach and all the whales with their calves heading back south. Our apartment was spotless! It had everything we needed...

The Sands is across from a beautiful, quiet surf beach. The lagoon style pool is a lovely spot, with a massive barbeque area adjacent, and a huge spa that could fit 16. Caretakers were friendly and happy to share their local knowledge

We had the most wonderful time - meeting up with family members from all over Australia. The two apartments we had were excellent, and we couldn't have asked for better :) Beautiful surroundings too ..

Yamba because of my connections with it from the 1940s as a school holiday destination and my childrens' experiences of it when I was working in Grafton in the early 1960s....

Seb and Rae couldn't have been more helpful, we had some stairs from our unit to garage and he saw me struggling one day, so suggested we could park elsewhere, which was very thoughtful. The units though not new are very well appointed, everything you need, 2 bathrooms, laundry, I had a little adventure getting into a high side spa...

Seb and Rae do an amazing job at making you feel welcome, keeping the grounds in great condition, and see to it that everything you may need is taken care of. The place is beautiful. Great location, great choice of accommodation to suit...
