We booked a studio but upgraded to a larger villa, a great decision. Our two night booking turned into 4 nights and the only reason we left is we were due in Auckland for our flight home. This is not an budget lodging but the value is well worth it. The morning and evening views from the deck, dining, lounging... More

We stayed at Doubtless Villa's for just one night en-route from Cape Rienga to Auckland and loved the place. Incredible value for such high quality accommodation in a stunning place. We booked a 2 bedroom, 2 floor villa, which has large balconies off the living room and bedrooms and incredible en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom. Everything was immaculate and high... More

We were booked into a Studio apartment but they are quite small and we upgraded to a larger villa which we loved. A $100 per night more but so comfortable and spacious and fully equipped kitchen etc. The only negative was that there are no fly screens so at night time, when we wanted to have the fresh air from...

We stayed for two nights in a studio. What great views!! The room was well presented and we slept very comfortably both nights. The hosts were very helpful and even booked a trip to Cape Reinga for us well in advance. There is a great beach a few minutes walk down the hill, which a number of families with small... More

We only had two days in this quiet part of Doubtless Bay but it looks like No.22 is an excellent villa to have. Spotless, super kit and magical views especially with a full moon. Nice to have WiFi that is actually free ISO the normal NZ hotel mess.

We stayed in number 22 with open views across Cable bay- Spectacular! Villa was really well appointed, comfortable beds and excellent support from Shanni and Steve the managers. Four of us in the upper flat all agreed that it was a really great experience

Upgraded on check in to larger room which we appreciated Room was comfortable well appointed and laid out Few stains on carpet but otherwise very clean Only complaint was TV channels and selection as they use a local satellite service. Would have expected full sky service, but hey you don't go to cable bay to watch TV No local restaurants... More

Just had a great stay in a studio at Doubtless Bay Villas - great views, comfortable room and lovely and quiet. Also a great location for travelling to all beaches around the area. It would be handy to have a BBQ available for those staying the studio to use. Otherwise, a wonderful stay in a beautifully maintained place.

Coming round the corner of Cable bay you cant miss this place, positioned centre front of Cable bay these Villas have the best encompassing, panoramic views of Doubtless Bay. We spent 5 nights here in a Studio Unit and it was excellent. The owners are friendly and polite and we enjoyed making use of their tennis court. If you don't... More
