We only stayed here for one night but it was the highlight of our NZ tour. Lyall and trusty labrador co-host Bryn welcomed us at the door and made every effort to ensure we were comfortable. This lodge has recently changed hands and the new owner is not just an excellent and friendly host but is also committed to maintaining... More

Was a very nice place to stay, the room was very relaxing and the beach was at our doorstep. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Lyall was very accommodating to my family and I. Also knowing he allows dog is so comforting to know. Will definitely be staying here again and letting our family and friends know about this wonderful place.

i was lucky enough to stay here with friends. My apartment (beach break) was spotlessly clean with the most amazing views. I had organised with the host to allow my small dog to come too. We were met by Lyall and his lovely choc labrador on arrival. Both of them so welcoming. We were right on the beach and each... More

Thanks for your review. 90 Mile Beach certainly is a perfect setting, summer or winter, for walking the family dog and enjoying the fresh air. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and I hope I get the opportunity to greet you and your friends here again in the future. More

Beach Abode is a very elegant lodge at the edge of the end of 90 mile beach. Nice hosts, a well equipped kitchen and room, and the sound of rolling waves just in front of you. You step down your deck, walk through a delicate garden, pass a small river and you stand on a broad, vast beach. Highly recommended... More

We stayed at Sandy Cove apartment last weekend. What a lovely mini break and many thanks to the wonderful, and very interesting, Susan and Ned who made our stay memorable. Sandy Cove has everything that a couple would need, was spotlessly clean and located right on 90 mile beach. We had a great steak at the Bushmans Hut in Kaitaia... More

We stayed at this lovely beach abode this past February. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to New Zealand. Susan and Ned have done a wonderful job of making the apartments very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Our only disappointment was that we did not book for longer!

My family enjoyed our stay in this lovely 2-bedroom apartment at 90 Mile Beach. Susan and Ned are gracious hosts with a lovely location on the beach.

Sorry to be repetitive but we also really wished we could have stayed longer (only stayed one night whilst doing ninety mile beach). Location is great, thoroughly recommend as a base for Cape Reinga etc. High quality accommodation.

We thought we were out of luck finding anywhere to stay in Ahipara after a long drive up and down to Cape Reinga, we phoned Susan and Ned who waived their usual minimum 2 night stay for us and as a result found ourselves in one of the best places we've found in New Zealand.
