Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

This was one of the best places we stayed in New Zealand; a fabulous one bedroom apartment right on the beach front in Whitianga. The accommodation was super clean and the bed super comfortable. But the view! Right over Mercury Bay and out into the Pacific. Sure there is a road between but it’s largely used by locals to take...

We stayed here for 3 nights, but the rooms are run down and the bed. The rooms are also a strange layout. Also with no aircon. We paid $825 for 3 nights so was expecting something rather nice, but would def not pick this place to stay in again. However lovely view

I chose this place for its view--- and that, it did have. But although it was right across from the ocean, the main road was right in front of it. Our room was also difficult to enjoy because it was right on ground level--- couldn't leave the slider open at night, and if you did sit on the patio in...
