Always have a lovely time when staying here. Just a short stroll down to the beach or over the road for takeaways. We always enjoy going for a drive back to Warkworth to the shops or to the Matakana market on Saturday morning. Beautiful area of NZ to holiday in. This time the owners were away but had a more than capable person looking after us. Thanks again for a great stay.

We stayed just one night on our way south but I wished we could have stayed longer. The host was very friendly and is happy to give insight about the surroundings. The room (standard) was spacious and clean. Shops on the opposite provide everything you need. Snell's beach itself is very nice and in 10 minutes you can reach Scotts landing or Matakana.

We stayed here one night on our way back from Australia because we wanted to see Kawau Island the following morning and then head up to Mangawhai to stay with friends. Not to far a drive from the airport, just over an hour.
Our upstairs unit on the north side very clean and tidy but not sure I like the wooden polished floors. No road noise, good bed, great shower.
Shops and the Warehouse just across the road.
I wish motels would offer green milk.
I would recommend to accommodation no stress on book in lady very helpful.

I totally agree about the green milk ! If we could get it in the same 300ml, we would definitely offer it.

We chose this place for my cousin who loves to shop. The Warehouse was across the road as was a few other shops and plenty of eateries so we didn't need to drive anywhere for meals. A small four square supermarket also. We based ourselves here and travelled 10 minutes to Warkworth, 10 minutes to Matakana, a few minutes to Algies Beach and Sandspit to do the boat trip to Kawerau Island. About 20 minutes to Leigh and Goat Island.
The rooms were spacious and well decorated and the deck out the back with views of the sea were used frequently! Highly recommend and will stay again when we are up in that area again.
Our cousins had their own unit and we had ours next door upstairs
