Our stay at Sandy Shores was very comfortable and pleasant. The rooms are well equipped and the beds were excellent. It is next to the beach and centrally located. The host was very friendly and helpful.

These apartments are in a small group literally across the road from the beach and a couple of blocks from town and restaurants, so an excellent location. We stayed overnight in the downstairs 1 bedroom apartment which was very clean and comfortable. We had booked last minute and hotels were full but got this apartment for a reasonable price. It...

Very comfortable, well equipped apartment. Entire family love the location. The beach is wonderful and so close. Everything we needed to cook a meal and chill out enjoying the view. Free wifi kept the kids happy when the sun went down and they had to stop swimming. Wish we could stay longer.

We stayed in the first floor apartment, which has two double bedrooms and one small single bedroom. It is a beautiful apartment, tastefully decorated, with a huge living area and a view to die for out across the bay. We were only staying for three nights, but could easily have stayed there for longer, it was so nice. It was...

We had booked appartment no. 1 during Christmas. Thelma, the owner, welcomed us very warmly when we arrived. She offered us a discount if we pay cash. Moreover she gave us some fresh strawberries for free. The appartment was very clean and cosy. The kitchen was well equipped. The sea view was breathtaking and the beach was just beyond the...

Absolutely loved staying Thelma at Sandy Shores. The apartment was huge and very comfortable with everything you would need to be as happy and comfortable as in your own home. The view of Buffalo Beach was incredible and town was an easy walk away. Would absolutely go back!

We stayed upstairs in the three-bedroom apartment and it was wonderful. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The unit was very clean and the kitchen was fully supplied. The view is beautiful. This is a perfect unit for a family. One bedroom is quite small but the others are lovely. It is across the street from the beach and...

We stayed in the top apartment and if the view isn't "the best view in Whitianga" then it comes a very close second. Spacious accommodation with everything we needed, wonderful welcome and a place to stay within easy walking distance of the town centre with its cafes, restaurants and bars ... while still being quiet enough to hear the waves...
