We stayed two nights in (July 2014) in the penhouse apartment where the Baffalo Beach is just across the road in front of us. The sea view is stunning, the apartment is clean and decorations are modern. Larry has been very helpful at all time. We will definitely recommend this apartments to our friends and relative when they visit Coromandal and/or Whitianga.

Not only was the accommodation all we could ask for-great location with the beach across the road and town a short stroll away, warm and very comfortable-the owners were extremely helpful. We would encourage anyone to stay here.

We stayed for 2 nights and found it be one of the best, it was lovely and clean, warm and had a very comfortable bed. The location is in a prime spot so handy to the township but well within walking distance, and with the beach just across the road ideal for early morning walks The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to accomodate us. The only fault we could think of was our stay was not long enough !! Will certainly stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights in 2 bedroom apartment level 1. Views was great, apartment is very clean, comfortable, shower is great! plus the spa bath which was a hit to the children. Great value! Loved the covered deck as we can sit there enjoying the view without the cold. Wifi is excellent! They prepared shovel and beach towel for our trip to hot water beach. It is a great place to stay while you are exploring stunning Coromandel!

We stayed at the Waterfront for 6 nights. Had an upstairs apartment (number 7 from memory) with superb views of the Bay. No noise issues which was very pleasant after some previous experiences in other places so we were able to sleep well. Great to be so close to the water and quiet beach which we walked along most days. The unit was well equipped, clean and very handy to shops and restaurants. The managers were exceptionally helpful, friendly and provided useful information when asked for it. The parking was secure and everything felt very comfortable to be able to relax at night.

Room Tip: Try for an upstairs (Level 1) room facing the Bay if you enjoy being able to sit and watch the water...

We stayed for 2 nights in the penthouse suite, which was immaculate, spacious, super comfortable, with incredible views and lovely luxuries such as telescope, plunger coffee, big spa, huge main bed overlooking the ocean, ceiling to floor windows.... We arrived very late at night and were so relieved after a stressful journey to find our room open, well lit, and very cozily warm! The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, just lovely.
My only suggestion is that the bathroom could be better appointed (larger and better quality shampoo & conditioner, maybe an amenities set of toothbrush, toothpaste, etc). It would be a nice touch to have NZ made higher end products in there. Just to kick the luxe level up a notch!
The children loved it and we can't wait to return. We will definitely recommend the Waterfront and will stay there again, hopefully for longer next time!
