A very nice, clean, and comfortable apartment hotel, located across the road from the Buffalo beach and a couple of minutes' walk away from Whitianga's restaurants. Even if the Buffalo road can be relatively busy in daytime, it is absolutely quiet and peaceful at night. A small kitchen was very helpful as I was able to make my own breakfast. I was given a ground floor apartment, yet it felt very safe and private. The best beach in the neighbourhood (the Flaxmill beach) can be easily reached within 15 to 20 minutes via a short ferry ride, and it is worth the effort. Larry and Deb were kind enough to extend my check-out time by a couple of hours upon my request, at no extra cost. The only shortcoming I can think of is limited internet access (with only 2 free hours provided upon arrival). But if I ever come to visit Whitianga again, I'll happily stay in the same place.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled solo

2 bedroom apartment - fantastic balcony views over Flaxmill Bay. Maybe the bathroom could do with a bit of updating, but everything about the aspect, the views, the access to other attractions and the willing friendliness of the management and staff were absolutely faultless. We would go back again in a heartbeat. We won't tell you the apartment number that we were in, because it will never be vacant again when we want it.

We were in Whitianga for a weekend on a GrabOne Voucher and this location was absolutely worth it ... spot on ... supernice people, extremely helpful, would always recommend it ... we definitely will be back again ... the street is a little bit close, but that is just how it is when you are so closed to the beach ... ;-) ... did not mind it at all at night ... ;-)

Room Tip: upstairs is of course nicer than on the ground, but it is still great and great view too.

Staying at the Waterfront Apartments in Whitianga earlier this week was one of those 'Wow' times in life. From the spacious penthouse apartment with views to die for - (at first we did not even want to go anywhere, we just wanted to sit and enjoy) - to the comfort, the cleanliness and the helpful, friendly and professional staff, this has been such an incredible experience that we are already looking at future dates to stay there. Within walking distance there are an array of places for those 'must have a coffee now' times and mouth watering meals. It is all there just waiting for you to enjoy. Thank you Larry, Raven en staff for making this extra special for all of us. Our visiting son is taking with him unforgettable memories of Whitianga thanks to you..

Room Tip: We stayed in the penthouse which was a special treat. All the other apartments would be worth stayi...

We stayed there for 2 nights. It was lovely big apartment so we had plenty of room, plus we had a lovely little sunroom which overlooked the beach.
It was walking distance to 2 great restaurants that we went to, plus nice and handy to all shops.
Very pleasant stay and a great spot.
