We stayed at Golden Sand for two weeks in a very nicely fitted out two bedroom apartment right on the beach. It is an excellent location to use as a base for exploring Northland, perfect for day trips. We highly recommend Golden Sand. Thank you, Rosemary.

Had the most fantastic stay. Accommodation fabulous, Location perfect, only a couple of metres to Cable Bay beach. The beach is good for swimming all tides. Playground also only metres away. Friendly hosts. We were in one of the retro batches that had been refurbished. Will definitely be back again

We stayed in the Sunshine suite which is a studio apartment and all that is needed for a couple. It was all I expected and more. Nicely appointed, spacious and lovely decor. Only a ten minute drive to Maunganui village or the nearest supermarket. The best part was being right on the beachfront and the views were beautiful.

Absolute masters of hospitality. Upon arrival, I greeted as if I was a long lost friend, and looked after as if I was family. Definitely the epitome of a luxury NZ getaway. I will be recommending to all my friends and returning myself.

Perfect get away. Right on the beach, where you hear the gentle breaking of the waves to help you fall asleep at night. Wake up and walk down the beach. What a superb way to start the day. Apartment was great for the 3 of us.
