We stayed here for 3 nights last weekend. We agree with the many positive reviews. We would happily have stayed much longer. If you are touring by car and are in the Whitianga area for just a short time the location is particularly good - the same side of the harbour as Shakespeare Cliff, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach, with the passenger ferry 2 or so kms away to take you straight into Whitianga itself. Cook's Bay itself is a beautiful beach.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chris & Paul welcome you to the "Mussel Bed" - nestled amidst native bush, tropical gardens & streams & yet, so close to beautiful Cooks Beach. A perfect base to explore Cathedral Cove & Hot Water Beach which is only a 10 mins drive. Our self-contained cottage has 2 bedrooms and sleeps up to 5 people. Our guest wing has 3 luxurious suites, tiled en suites & french doors opening onto private decks with all those special touches our guests love! We bring breakfast to you on a tray to enjoy in our lovely garden. Kayak the stream from our jetty and enjoy the natural bird habitat, exploring caves and walking on gorgeous Lonely Bay! We look forward to making your stay a special one. ... more less
