We stayed here for one night during a 4 week road trip. Our hosts were very friendly & welcoming & the complex looked very well maintained and peaceful. Our upstairs apartment was spacious and nicely decorated with fabulous views that we never tired of. The price was slightly high compared to other places we stayed during this holiday but overall a very pleasant experience.

Great views of the beach - but that’s about the only positive. Hardly the luxury advertised. Dated and basic furnishings and very b-a-s-i-c bed with rocks in the pillows. Way overpriced at $NZ190. There was no-one else staying, so would think around $130 max. for upstairs waterfront room. Less for the others. Id really be concerned if there was someone staying in the unit beneath as the floors were awful squeaky.
We would have stayed 2 or 3 nights if the bed was above camping ground standards.

Room Tip: Definitely choose upstairs room. Good if you like very hard bed ( with springs ) and pillows.

Was looking forward to staying across from the water. The views were spectacular. Location was great. Stayed in a ground floor family suite for 4 nights. The toilet did not flush properly and we were constantly moving the inside cistern around to shut the damm thing up. The lighting blew in the bathroom and the issue was not fixed until 2 days later. Notified owners of problems, but slow to action. Beds were comfortable but watch for bugs in the beds after a few nights. Could hear the movement and noises from people upstairs at night. Not pleasant if you are a light sleeper. Is a little dated, but can be ignored if basic maintenance of rooms were regularly monitored. Rooms are clean and tidy, but disappointed with the overall lack of value for money and maintenance issues.

Room Tip: Pick an upstairs suite or a stand alone suite as these may be quieter at night.

We pre-booked Bucklands Beach as we were at the end of our holiday and wanted somewhere quiet for the last days of our holiday and not too far from the airport. Our room(s) were in a chalet style unit, with living/kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor and bedroom on a mezzanine floor.The chalet was nicely furnished,had outside seating area on decking and a covered car-port alongside.Although the beach area is quite nice, we didn't realise that there was so much housing on the peninsula.Also, it didn't help that it rained steadily for the 3 days we were there - there were a couple of dry intervals!
If the weather had been good we may have got a better impression of the area.
There were a couple of decent restaurants close by and it was a short drive to a supermarket.
