            Location Location ”

            Ideal beach front location right on Korora beach which is unpartroled making it private and most times to yourself. Smugglers has everything you can thing of and managers have put all product in your unit for your use. Units need a little updating but the location speaks for itself. The sound of waves at night puts you to sleep and you will not want to leave, 5 nights is not enough. Local Coffs area has a wide range of activities from Big Banana fun park, dolphin park, SUP and Surf lessons, and Camel rides along the beach. Restaurants are 5 star and cheap feeds everywhere at local pubs. Local markets every Saturday and Sunday with fresh local produce and bargains. Smuggles and Coffs well worth a visit.😆😎🙃

            Beautiful apartment, very comfortable and attractively furnished. Magnificent location, right on the beach.

            i had a wonderful stay at smugglers. i walked on the beach morning and afternoon and took leisurely walks along the scenic track over to the next bay. coffs harbour is only minutes away by car so it was easy to access supermarket, coffee shops, restaurants and all kinds of specialty stores. smugglers is in a very quiet location which suited me perfectly. i will certainly stay there again.

            We were only at Smugglers for 2 wonderful days. Spotlessly clean, very highly maintained with super staff. 5K from Coffs Harbour and a 3 min stroll to the beach. Comfy bed and every thing you wanted for an idillic stay. Our Sofa was a 'sofabed' and not nice to sit on, so we swam in the heart shaped pool instead!

            A surprise venue.”

            Great place. Only a small minus. There isn’t any restaurants, hotel or shops close by. Need to go back into Coffs for this; however as I said only a small minus. If you plan, prepare and do some shopping before you go there you will really enjoy this venue. Very impressive bbq pool area; first class. Two minute walk to beach. Under cover parking and close to unit was also a plus. We were on ground level. Good if you have a few years against you. You would only find this place on line due to location. Not on any main road or highway.

            Great motel with huge apartments. Huge bedrooms and bathroom. Has a dishwasher to clean plates at the end of the day. Right on the beach though the beach is not patrolled. There is a grassed area next to the beach to go for a walk. There is access to a central washer and clothes line to wash clothes though each day I was there the clothes line was nearly full. Would have been nice to have a washing machine in each room.

            Great size rooms. Loved the short walk to beach. Felt far away from everything, but close enough to main part of Coffs

            It was a quick stay, but we were comfortable (though the foldout bed was a doozy, so we put the mattress on the floor). Great access to pool and beach. Friendly happy staff, which is always an asset!

Cons: Terrible water pressure and the worst couch we have ever sat on. Curtains need replacing. Overall: A great place for a small family!

            Great Place to Stay in Coffs Harbor”

            Location, accessiblity (by car), spacious room

            Arrived late and left early. There was no fuss for check in and check out (just simply picking up and dropping the keys in the key box). Great location and we could just wake up 10 minutes earlier and walk to the beach to catch sunrise. Too bad we only stayed for a day. Will definitely come by when we have the chance.

            Very impressed”

            We had a quick one night stay on our way down the coast. I was very impressed with our apartment & will look at going back one day for a longer stay!

            It was a pleasant stay”

            All good however had no WIFI reception from anywhere in the the apartment. Optus reception was no good either. So three nights without Internet on a business stay. Not good!
