“What a fantastic place! Wish we could have stayed longer.”
Reviewed 23 March 2010

This was a fanbulous place to stay; sadly we had only booked two nights. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Would definitely recommend to anyone heading that way, and we will certainly stay there again when back up that way.

The location is great, right on the beach with fantastic views and lovely walks in the surf. Susan and Ned were extremely helpful, immediately replacing the gas for the bbq when it ran out.

There are only three apartments, ours had two separate bedrooms plus a kitchen/dining area and lounge with sofa looking out over the deck to a wonderful beach view. The apartment was finished to an extremely high standard. The rooms were very clean, the bedding comfy and the towels fluffy. The bathroom was a delight! Huge & very good shower.

The kitchen was well equipped with all that we needed, high quality crockery and cutlery. High speed internet (free) was welcome.

Just remember to bring your own groceries or book dinner ahead as there is nothing open in 'town' after 6pm!

Using motels as a base when travelling around New Zealand is a good way to do it, but after a week or two they all begin to look very much the same. Beach Abode is the place that breaks that mould. Only 3 units, all different and virtually on ninety mile beach. The decor and fittings have been chosen to suit the rooms by the friendly and helpful owners rather than fit a corporate plan. A very relaxing place to stay, we should have booked for longer. A bonus is that, by arrangement, Susan will cook you a fabulous meal of local produce.
Our reason for staying in the area was to visit ninety mile beach. Sand Safaris, who pick up from the door, provided a trip that could not be bettered.

We stayed here three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The unit was beautifully furnished, spotless and very well equipped. The bed had beautiful linen on and was really comfortable. The bathroom was gorgeous and had lovely fluffy white towels and toiletries. We loved the location of this property especiallly being able to walk on the beach from the bottom of the garden. The owners couldn't do enough to help us and were very friendly and welcoming.
