Perfectly acceptable for a weekend stay. Close to the beach and the HoeyMoey which puts on a great meal. Two lovely little cafes around the corner to choose from for breakfast. Clean apartments and welcoming management.

We were after a small unit to stop over in Coffs Harbour for a few days and saw these units online. Impressed with onsite laundrette, games room, WiFi, swimming pool, BBQ, free car parking, plus the Units are reasonably priced, clean and equipped for self catering. Very impressed.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. It was a home away from home. Deb was very welcoming and friendly. There are 7 of us and there was lots of room to spread out and relax. The pool was clean and refreshing. The kitchen was clean and equipped if we chose to cook ourselves, which we did. Although we didn't...
