we are home now from our trip to Gisborne. Having stayed at the Wainui Beach Motel twice in a period of three and a half weeks. Tanya the manager will go out of her way to accommodate you. We stayed in unit two and three. Both of these units are spacious and have a lovely private front garden where we we able to have our dog outside when it was hot. The motels are clean comfortable and well equipped. Because they are a bit on the older side they also have loads of storage space so that if you want to you can unpack for a longer stay and not live out of your suitcase. Great I loved that. The pool is set in a secluded part of the complex and so you do not feel the rest of the world is watching you as you play in the pool and cavort around like a child. Just a short walk along the road is the local Wainui Dairy. Although I wouldn't advise you shop here for your food needs its a bit on the expensive side, I would recommend their burgers and takeaway food. The best I have eaten for a very long time. Absolutely delicious. But best of all is the beach over the road. Great swimming and body surfing. Lovely for long walks. Friendly people and your dog is welcome. We will return time and time again. Thanks again Tanya for returning our requests so promptly when we made our bookings and again when you accommodated us when we changed our bookings on our second stay.
