Lyall and Bryn are the best hosts, fun, friendly and so helpfull. The rooms are cozy and immaculately clean and have everything you could need, watch the surf, sunrise and sunsets from your bed, or walk through the beautiful grounds to 90 mile beach. Town is still small and beachy with a store to buy some groceries, or a few... More

Loved our stay with Lyall, the best host and a really nice man, very accommodating and lovely dog (Bryn) were always on hand to help us. The area is perfect, on the beachfront with amazing sunset and sea views and easy access to the beach. We had an awesome time here, I thoroughly recommend everyone to stay here.

Beach Abode was absolutely lovely. We only stayed one night and the weather was a bit grim being mid winter. However, it really didn't matter as the place was cosy and warm, had everything we needed and the views were still beautiful with the weather clearing just in time for a lovely sunset. Lyall was fantastic and made sure we... More

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 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!
