We had the family apartment upstairs - it was very nice. Awesome for us - just our teenagers were a little large for the kiddie bunks that were meant for the kids. They survived but when the one on top wiggles the one on the bottom protested it was very distrubtive. we had our own room and were very happy.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful. Room was spotless and bed and pillows extremely comfortable. Mini bar was well stocked with everything you would want. Breakfast was included the first night and very much appreciated. Beach a mere short walk across the road. North Kirra Surf Club a 10 minute walk...

We were so pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. We were just after somewhere to lay our head for the night, as we were attending a birthday party at Kirra. The friendly check in staff, cleanliness and facilities including all modern amenities plus extra touches all make this an incredible place to stay on the Coast. We will definitely be back....

Quick overnight getaway for a romantic dinner date at local restaurant at Burleigh. Perfect room with wonderful hospitality from our hosts - comfy beds, super quiet air conditioning, well stocked kitchenette area and couple of mins walk to pristine beaches. We loved the retro quirkiness of La Costa - from the colourful outdoor table & chairs to the lushest carpet...

This is a lovely spot to stay very clean and modern. Short walk to the beach. I am not sure it is a motel. There are no real meal options including breakfast although single serve packages of cereal are available. Reception hours are a bit limited but the staff are friendly and obliging.

I stayed here in early November with my husband who booked this motel last minute. To be 100% honest I would never return. The rooms are noisy and extremely small. We could hear conversations in the next room and general traffic noise. It wasn't 'relaxing' by any means and not what he expected based on other reviews and photos. It's...

Stayed at La Costa over the Christmas period and really enjoyed the feel of this period correct circa 1950-1970's establishment. John and Diane and family are excellent hosts and offer the public a taste of ' days gone by ' in this Motel with all the modern internal facilities for relaxation and leisure. It parlayed beautifully with our Tweed River...
