Hubby and I have stayed here before and found it to be a great stay. This time however we were given a different room and were very disappointed. The apartment smelled of smoke and even had an ashtray on the verandah outside even though smoking is illegal. The walls badly needed repainting. the carpet was ripped and shredded. knives, glasses...

We really enjoyed our stay at this property, a resort with all the amenities required, clean and cosy. The apartment had full kitchen and dining facilities, the lounge was comfortable with a large Rv. Our room was perfect and comfortable. The surroundings beautiful and the beach right there.

Excellent, huge appartment a few steps from the beach. Nice pool and barbeque area. Quiet setting in a residential area. We liked it very much and extended our stay. There are no shops or restaurants nearby, you absolutely need a car.

5 fantastic days with my parents. First time in Coffs Harbour and the accommodation at Smugglers on the beach was just perfect 👍🏻 Beautiful beaches relaxing and very quiet for a nice break under the sunshine.

Absolutely impressed with every aspect of our recent 8 night stay at Smuggler's! We were in Coffs Harbour for work and had selected this accommodation based on previous reviews, proximity to beach and the quiet location - we were NOT disappointed. Our apartment was spotless when we arrived and the kitchen included all the apparatus required - including dishwasher powder,...

We visited in 2010 & this was a lovely place to holiday. The appartments are stunning, very clean, modern, comfortable & private. The prices for our 4 day stay back then in a 2 bedroom apartment were great & quite reasonably affordable for a family of 4.

This is a great place to stay. Right near the beach. I think the price has gone up now, was a little cheaper when we went last time but we might come again early next year. Was clean, staff were nice. Probably one of the best self contained units I've stayed at. Hope to see you again soon!

We had a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 night at Smugglers on the Beach. It was well appointed with absolutely every thing you need, just when you are thinking wouldn't it be good to have... there it is. We chose Smugglers over the large resorts because we could have a two bedroom apparent rather then booking two rooms in a...
