We are from the UK and travelled around New Zealand for two weeks staying in 4 and 5* hotels, this was the best place we stayed and at a reasonable price. The lady who runs the place was helpfull and we had a great time. June & Bill

A lovely, comfortable stay. We wanted 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the 3 storey townhouse with its own parking space fitted the bill perfectly. Just a stone's throw from the ocean and the delights of Whitianga. We were able to walk back for lunch from our day pass at the Lost Spring, do all the messy washing and hang it out to dry after Hot Water Beach, cook a nice meal or get fish and chips from around the corner. The continental breakfast with hot croissants delivered to us each morning was scrummy. Didn't want to leave.

Took my mum here for a long weekend and had the most amazing time! Weather was great 2 out of 3 of the days but the resort really accommodates for any weather - heated swimming pool means you can still go for a dip and the tennis court was lots of fun (even though most of the balls went outside of the court due to our in-experience!!) Our room had the most amazing view of the ocean and everything inside was immaculate. Couldn't say a bad thing about the place as it was just perfect! The owners (sorry have forgotten their names!) were both super helpful and recommended lots of awesome places to go see/do. Will definitely be back again soon.

The resort is a short 2 minute walkaway from the beach as well as the main street, which has all the restaurants and bars (it is a small town so there aren't that many). The resort itself is fantastic and way above our expectations - photos do not do justice to the quality of the villas. We booked a 1 bedroom villa and we were given a 2-storey house with 1 bedroom below (not to be used else you will be charged). There is space to park your car right outside the apartment/house.

Go upstairs and you are greeted with a beautiful sight - a large living room with very comfortable sofas and lounges, luxurious area rug, large floor to ceiling windows (this is pretty high ceiling) with a little balcony outside, a large TV, boxes filled with board games, and a well-appointed kitchen containing anything and everything you need that too top class stuff (even the water kettle is premium!) - it is a pity we didn't need to use anything apart from coffee and the microwave. We got a villa which was away from the beach road so you don't get much of a view from the balcony - saw a little of the ocean through the gap between two villas on the opposite side of the resort. Since we planned to spend little time in the room, it didn't matter much but if you stay for more than 2 days you might want the view (gorgeous at night)

The bedroom and bathroom are also of equally high quality and design - spacious and very comfortable. We spent most of our day outdoors but returning to this apartment in the evening was a pleasure - no harsh lights, put on the radio (yes there is a CD system), brilliant to sit out on the balcony or on the lounge sofas with a drink. The resort has a little temperature controlled pool, which is good for a 15-minute dip after the cold water of the ocean.

Pamela - the host is very friendly and helpful with directions and a guide on things we could do in Whitianga. We had absolutely no cause for complaint - even if there was one I am sure she or Graeme would resolve it within minutes.

See the photos to get a sense of the place! Absolutely recommend it and I feel this is the best accomodation with terrific value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa which is closer to the beach road (not sure if these are for larger i.e. 2-3 bedroom...

We booked this resort by first reading reviews on trip advisor and the resort certainly lived up to the expectations of all the great reviews. We were welcomed by the lovely hosts Pamela and Graeme ,who were so helpful and accommodating.
We had a two level apartment which was beautifully furnished ,well equipped and spotlessly clean. Plenty of room for our family of five.
It's location was about 50 metres from the beach. Shops were about a block away.
There was plenty for the kids to do at the resort with a tennis court, swimming pool , as well as bikes and scooters on hand.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would absolutely recommend this resort to stay at.

Our two bed apartment here was actually a three storey house, complete with garage and first floor balcony (sea view if you are lucky). Nice open plan kitchen, dining and lounge areas. One drawback is that toilet/bathroom was on the top floor only. Less than 5 mins walk to Buffalo Beach, and only a little longer to the village centre. Would have liked to stay longer and get to use the swimming pool and tennis court.

We booked two apartments for 7 days over New Year for three couples and our adult children who stayed for a couple of nights each. The accommodation worked well, with each apartment having two good sized double bedrooms on the third floor and two single beds on each ground floor.

On the first floor the kitchens were well equipped with stove, oven, microwave and a dishwasher. Good stock of crockery and cutlery meant we had no problems having eight people sitting down for a meal either inside or on a deck.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that one of the apartments had a gas fired BBQ on the deck, which staff must have picked up on when we made our bookings many months ago and had asked what BBQ facilities were available.

Clothes washer & dryer were located on the ground floor. We were also offered to have the apartments serviced daily for $20 per day.

End units have larger kitchens and have more light due to extra windows. A bonus was lots of parking space for extra cars and a boat & trailer too - although the fishing was not as good!

We were provided with a "starter pack" of tea & coffee and detergents which was not problem as the Four Square supermarket is only two minutes walk away, as is a local cafe, the fish & chip shop and the beach.

Only draw-back was the WIFI connection which was very slow most of the time that we we there. A post and chain fence posed a challenge for one of our party when reversing a car!
