Well appointed apartments on a beautiful beachfront. There are steps straight down to the golden sandy beach and gorgeous views from the rooms. The apartment was very clean with good facilities including high pressure shower and comfortable deck furniture. The owner is lovely and very interesting. Beach towels, boogie boards and laundry services are all provided free of charge. Wonderful spot, really worth spending a few relaxing days at!

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with family

We needed a break away from the busy Auckland scene both having been travelling and needing time together and chill out - well this fitted the bill to perfection - we have the very gorgeous recently refurbished Sunset Cottage which was simply divine - balcony sitting out amongst the pohutakawas enjoying the sound of the waves on the beach, watching people below walking by on the beach and just relaxing with each other - Margaret has done a wonderful job and a great property for everyone to enjoy - we shall definitely be back and will book a winter weekend as can only just imagine how special it will be to watch a storm pass across the bay and you are tucked up in the trees watching the world go by.

Room Tip: Definitely request Sunset Cottage/Apartment - perfect for 2 people - very private and superb fit out

Margaret is a fabulous host - really friendly and helpful.
Really comfortable accommodation, right on the beach. Wake to the view through mature Pohutakawa trees and the sound of waves right off your private balcony.

Kindest, warmest, most heartfelt reception ever! The property is perfectly appointed, has the best TV and Wi-Fi in New Zealand (if you care - which you shouldn't when you're here), and is absolutely immaculate. I had 5 blissful days here, and I can't thank Margaret enough.

Stayed three nights at Beach Lodge recently. We found it extremely difficult to leave. Who would want to leave this brilliant beach front position overlooking a safe 2 km white sandy beach lined with shady Pohutakawa trees, which at rush hour, may have 20 people on it? The room was spacious, very well appointed, with two seperate bedrooms, a wonderful large deck with extremely comfortable outdoor furniture, free wi fi, two televisions and excellent cable TV coverage. We enjoyed the famous Mangonui fish and chips (which lived up to their reputation)and Thai food from the local restaurants and there was a choice of good cafes in the area. There are so many different beach options to visit in the vicinity, but my favourite is definitely Coopers Beach as it has more shelter. Plus there's lots to see and do while you're there (boating, fishing etc), but we just wanted to relax for a few days. Local amenities (supermarket etc), are close to the accommodation but once you are on the beach you feel you are miles from anywhere. Going to sleep with the sound of the sea so close was so relaxing. Margaret is a wonderful host, extremely welcoming and friendly. Some of the other beachfront motels looked tired and dated. This is definitely a very special representation of what New Zealand has to offer independent travellers without any pretention - just a very personal authentic experience.

We booked the Beach Lodge as an ideal starting point for our Northland exploration. We then found out, that the place alone is already worth a great holiday. The lodge is directly at the fantastic beach and the lodge is perfect in every aspect.

On arrival at Beach Lodge we were greeted in a friendly, welcoming manner by Margaret who showed us where to park and took us to our unit. When we stepped through the entry door of our accommodation at Beach lodge our reaction was WOW! The decor was fresh with blue, white and timber. The kitchen, main bedroom and bathroom are on the entry level with stairs going up to a lovely attic room with 2 single beds.We stepped out on to the balcony complete with comfortable outdoor furniture to take in the view which was just lovely.Absolute beachfront, the sand and the waves were so close and it was just a short walk down to the beach. It was so nice to just sit and relax on the balcony with the calming sound of the waves on the shore.
We had unit 4 which was down the end. We were very happy with the very well equipped kitchen, the comfortable beds and pillows that were just the right height and the cleanliness of everything.
Coopers Beach is a great beach to walk on and you can use kayaks provided by Beach Lodge to paddle around on the water. There are only a few shops in Coopers Beach including a Four Square supermarket and a fish shop. Coopers Beach and Beach Lodge is definitely a great place to stay to explore the Doubtless Bay area of Northland, New Zealand.

Room Tip: Unit 4 is down the end and only has one unit on the other side of it.
