This is the most underated place of my 12 days in New Zealand. Was not expecting much as the price was too reasonable and in fact lower than most of the places I stayed in New Zealand. Total surprise when I arrived. The place is spotlessly cleaned, and it was blatently obvious that the owners put much love into this place. Kate was very friendly and helpful in anything that was needed. This is one of the few places that is in fact RIGHT on the beach. Very comfortable bed, large TV and fully equiped kitchen, all new and spotlessly cleaned! Great balcony overlooking the ocean, the waves are very soothing to the ear and enhances the peace and tranquillity in this awesome place. Almost forgot the Bar-B-Que on the beach with the beautiful wooden bar and table. What a way to relax and enjoy!
Definitly a place to reccomend to family and friends and would go out of my way to come back.

Room Tip: there is no swimming pool or fitness center , but if you take the ocean as your pool, and as close a...

Great place to stay. Pricey but worth it. A bit out of the actual town. There isn't much to the town though so not missing out on anything. Very small (6 rooms) so you get to know your neighbors.
Kitchen and bathroom very modern and clean.
I would send people here.

We spent a wonderful 4 day break with our young grandson at the beginning of November. Beachfront Resort is welcoming, very clean and very well equipped.
We had a ground floor unit that had been refurbished to a high standard and with fabulous views. With a short stroll across the manicured lawn to the beach the little one was eager and ready in the morning to go for his paddle.
Plenty of supplies in the bathroom of good quality.
We would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to other travellers.

We only stayed two nights here during our tour of New Zealand but wish it could have been longer. The view of the ocean on entering our room was beautiful and the apartment lived up to our expectations. The facilities, including the bathroom looked new and we were given complimentary internet access for our stay which was a nice touch.
We were lucky to have good weather so made use of the sunbeds and spa although we weren't brave enough to try the kayaks as the sea was quite cold!
The location is about a 30 minute walk from the town but be warned, you can't walk down the beach into town as you have to cross a river so keep to the road where there are pavements and good paths all the way.
We would love to come back and stay longer as we thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay at the Beachfront Resort.

We absolutely loved the location. (Host) Kate and Paul were awesome. Clean Rooms. BBQ facilities. And when we asked for late check out was not a problem at all which was great as little ones hopped back in spa. Could not have asked for more.
Kids just loved it right on the beach and free kayaking was a bonus.

Room Tip: I would go for luxury room if you travelling with kids.

Spotless, spacious, gracious host, fabulous view, great spa. We loved our 4 days and nights here and would definitely return. Being right on the beach was the magic for us, no getting in the car or crossing the road etc. Just walk out the door. A great location and very close to the town for meals and coffees and shopping. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting a little bit of luxure at a reasonable cost.

Room Tip: Room 8 is large, has magnificent kitchen facilities and a wonderful view. The only drawback is that...

Just less than 3 hours from Auckland and you can be relaxing at this beautiful spot on the Coromandel Coast . The views from 7 out of 8 rooms to choose from are to live for . Clean and comfortable. We dont do much there as for us its just a getaway from work. I love the short walk over the lawn passed lounge chairs and bbq area and on to the safe beach just for a stroll . Even better is the new spa pool under the stars at night . But whitianga has heaps to offer.

Room Tip: all great. Downstairs easier access .
