We stayed at La Costa Motel for a family gathering to celebrate my mother-in-law’s 90th birthday. It was the perfect base station for us and Di welcomed our four generations warmly. The rooms are low set which meant easy access. The family rooms allowed us to be close together but people had privacy. La Costa is super close to the beach, surf club, shops and airport.

Thankyou VBsabroad, What a delight to host your family for the big 9.0. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The motel is small enough for a big gathering and comfortable enough so you can have all your seperate rooms. Take care and we look forward to welcoming you again soon. Regards Di

The light green, pink and cream exterior of this modernised classic motel perfectly reflects its calm, clean and friendly accommodation. Diane and John have listened to past visitors and added amenities to meet their needs. We benefited from a well stocked mini fridge, microwave, breakfast basket and beach towels. The location is within walking distance from the airport (though we happily accepted a lift back to the airport) and only one block from the beach. Diane was friendly and fun, providing us with things we’d forgotten, sun cream and adaptors, and offering local information and a bookmark. We were surprised to discover the delights of the area from the local coffee shop to Sunday afternoon music at the local surf club. Hope we’ll be able to return one day....good luck Diane and John.

The location was great near to the airport, beaches and places to dine in. The manager is friendly, sweet person and helpful. Since our room is ready she let us check in early. Spacious room, comfy bed and well equipped bathroom. Beautiful environment in a quiet area. Definitely will recommend to my friends and family.
