Whitangia is a lovely little beach town. Good sites, beaches, restaurants and hiking in the area. Stayed two days and recommended going there taking the west coast route to get there for beautiful scenery

If you are coming to Whitianga stay here. Very clean, very nice and great hosts! Breakfast was excellent and you are just a minute from the beach. We enjoyed the walk along the beach into town, town is small but quaint and has all that you would need!

This was a first our time staying at a b&b. My hubby and I enjoyed our stay very much, really liked the setting of the calm backyard and white linen as bedding. We got to meet the hosts at breakfast..breakfast was yummy even better than some cafes to be honest. My smoothie was refreshing too! Thanks you Wayne and Lizette...
