“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

We met up with an old school fried and the three of us spent 2 nights, in a 2 bedroom appartment. Good beds, bubble bath and a shower, kitchen and a glass balcony for morning sun, and a wonderful close view over the beach. Close to everything in town, walking distance to what we wanted, lunch, dinner, Glass Bottom boat which was ordered from the reseption. We are all above 65 - 70, so it suited us brilliant. The welcome was excellent, and we felt very good. We recommend this!

Room Tip: Higher floors for better view over the beach.

We are a family of four with two little daughters, one is 2 and half, one is 18 months, we got offered a two bedroom suite with a bath, which is so important for us, and the sea view is just stunning, the ocean is just across the road right opposite our big sliding window on a large furnished Balcony. The kitchen is well equipped with all the cutleries, cooking ware, you can just cook a meal anytime you wish, beyond all these, this place is just incredibly clean. and the location is so convenient too, only short walking distance to the town centre, where you can find all the eateries, and shops, the wharf, everything:))
there is one other good thing about them is that they offer beach towels for the clients to use.
overall, a 5 star stay we just had.
Definitely going to come back.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 8, the number is so nice for Chinese people, and I suppose our room are the only o...

Wonderful location with awesome views from our first floor apartment. Very close to town centre and restaurants. Located just across the road from the beach. Helpful receptionist who advised on local attractions and restaurants. The cleanliness left a bit to be desired (especially the spiderwebs around the insides of the windows). With a bit more 'attention to detail' and an update to its kitchen décor and appliances this would be a topnotch facility. Bed was very comfortable.

This apartments location and the view was fantastic! (it was like literally right across the beach) and the staffs at the front office was friendly and helpful all the way through our staying(better than the people at the information centre for sure), the bathroom and the shower was excellent , however the cleaness and the wellness of the room was very poor.

Spider-wave is inside and cleaning service is not perfect...
But location and scenery is awesome.
I wish the service will be better...

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.
