“Relaxing stopover, don't bother looking anywhere else in this $$$ range”
Reviewed December 18, 2010

Stopped here for a night each way, 8 days apart as we travelled between Sydney and the Gold Coast. We last stayed here for about a week 13 years ago.

Each time we have stayed in the 2 level 2 bedroom townhouses. Kitchen/living/laundry/WC downstairs and then 2 bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC upstairs. All 2 level townhouses look onto a lovely pool and BBQ area. Relxing ambience and very clean. Off the main road, so pretty quiet. Large shopping centre across the road, so we decided to BBQ whilst the kids enjoyed to pool. Great way to work off some pent up energy after to the long car trip.

Hosts very welcoming, great rate for a single night, units very clean and kitchen very well appointed. No air conditioning, which may be an issue for some over summer in Coffs, but we were fine with the ceiling fans.

The complex also has some older style 1 and 2 b/room units which I have not stayed in, but which appeared to have been very recently painted, and apparently have new beds.

For the money, I would not look anywhere else. There is plenty of options in Coffs, but many of them look quite tired from the outside.

We are taking a road trip up the East coast from Sydney to Rockhampton.and booked ahead to ensure we had accommodation during the school holidays.
We arrived at Aqua Villa after a long drive and were met and welcomed by the managers Doug and Sandra. What absolute legends!
Doug and Sandra were so kind, helpful and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble!
We booked Garden 16 and were very very impressed. It was very clean stylish and comfortable with every creature comfort you could wish for. Being a Pommie it was good to go 'upstairs' to sleep!! The bed was so comfortable (unlike the other review???)
The gated pool was beautiful and i couldn't keep my kids out of it!!
There is a massive Mall complex approximately 5 minutes walk away which was very handy. There are also smaller 'local' shops, butcher, baker etc a short walk along the road. The sausages were very good and much better than Woolworths!
The beach front is about 10 minutes easy level walk away with BBQ's and parks.
Pet Porpoise Pool is also worth a visit and is about 5-8 minutes drive from Aqua Villa.
This is the first review i have ever bothered to write on this site. i have often intended to but never actually got around to it...... I had to review Aqua Villa as it is such a gem. We discovered it by trawling thru the internet and i am so glad we booked.
Top quality accomodation, professional and friendly managers, cracking location...perfect!

We were passing through Coffs Harbour and needed overnight accommodation. We selected Aqua Villa on the basis of their web site after looking at five others, and booked directly with the property, which offered us a better rate than anything available on-line; the managers were very helpful and welcoming over the phone. The welcome continued when we checked in, with useful information on local shopping and dining options.
However, when we moved in to the allocated unit, we were very disappointed - the unit was very tired and worn, and nothing like the units overlooking the pool with modern furniture which were shown on the web site. The unit had adequate basic self-catering requirements, but the furniture was very worn, the bed was old and hard - we could feel individual springs; we had a very uncomfortable night, and were glad to check out. We won't be staying there on the trip home.

I think if the managers had mentioned that they had older style units at discount rates, we would have had lower expectations, or would have looked elsewhere. Our lesson from this experience is to ask more questions when the offered rate seems 'too good to be true' - we just assumed that the market was competitive and times were tough.

My family can not say how much we love to stay at Aqua Villas. This is our third stay. We travell 18 hours from North Queensland to Coffs Harbour to meet up with our children and grand children and each time here we have a ball.
The kids love the pool and the games room granny can stroll to the shops and eateries are close by.
Great location and great people who make us feel at home.
