“Excellent Accommodation & Great Location”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

The accommodation was modern, clean and the service excellent. Perched on top of a hill overlooking Doubtless Bay the views were stunning.If in this area this accommodation should be high on the list. The only downside was ther lack of a pool

We spent two wonderful nights in a single unit room at the Villas. Easy to make a reservation by phone or Internet. We used the phone. Check-in was quick and easy. We were warmly welcomed and escorted to our unit. The place sparkled - clean and freshly appointed. King bed and bed covers - top rate. Bath was exceptional - powerful shower and plenty of hot/warm water to wash off the dust from our daily treks. Plenty of amenities - coffee/milk. Small fridge and sink. One evening we dined outside our room on take-away food from an Indian Restaurant near by. Internet was easy to connect to and was reliable. Moon over the Cable Bay - breathless. Quality, value and service .. this place has it all. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: No advice - these folks will give you the best they have open. We doubt there is much difference in...

My fiance and I had an amazing 2 night break at Doubtless Bay Villas. The location itself is fantastic, and the villas are perched on a hill looking over the Northland ocean. Having booked a studio and being shown it by the excellent hosts, they offered us a discounted upgrade to a one bedroom apartment. We would DEFINITELY recommend this upgrade as the apartment is so much more spacious with SUCH a fantastic view (and balcony). The rooms are so modern and clean that it simply pains you to leave the place. If I could buy one of these apartments I would!

If you are heading to Northland, don't forget Mangonui and DEFINITELY don't forget to stay here.

Room Tip: Opt for one of the apartments over a studio - even if there is only 2 of you. Ask for one of the vil...

We stayed here for two nights in the middle of winter, the place was really clean and nice and quiet. The view from our apartment was awesome. Not much open at this time of year and what is open is pretty busy. I would advise taking some provisions if you are visiting at this time of year and make use of the gourmet kitchen facilities at the apartment which are the best I have ever seen anywhere. Would be nicer if they had a bigger and more comfortable bed the reason I gave 4 stars.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view apartment the views are unbelieveable.

My Husband and I have just had a well deserved weekend away, staying at the Doubtless Bay Villas. What you see on the web site is exactly what you get. The Villas are beautiful, we had Villa 22 which had all day sun and amazing views of the ocean. The Villas are very spacious with very large bedrooms. The furnishings are of a high standard and the bed and pillows all very comfortable. Opening the blinds in the morning and watching the sun rise was so spectacular, it was 11am before we decided to get up because you just don't tire of that view. The open plan living area is great, sitting on the couch and all you see is water. So relaxing. The grounds around the Villas are very neat and tidy and we also noticed that there is very little noise, just what we were looking for.
I thoroughly recommend the Villas, and we will definitely be going back on a regular basis.

Room Tip: Villa 22 is on the end of a building which allowed us to have two great big windows on an end wall...

Our family of 4 has just enjoyed 5 nights staying at Doubtless Bay villas. They are well furnished, and exactly as the website presents them. Our boys enjoyed the full size tennis court and free wifi access.The views out to sea are pretty special. We were glad we had a car, as the best eating out options seemed to be in Manganui, which is about 6 kms away.
