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

We really enjoyed our stay on a wintry stormy weekend. We enjoyed late morning starts, with beautiful panorama view from the bed, warm room with a good heater, high standard furnishings, very clean, friendly host and flexible with a booking change.

We stayed two nights in a one bedroom villa, had very modern facilities, great bathroom, views were amazing very quiet and private. A lovely touch with a nice welcome card and homemade fudge. The managers were very warm and friendly.

Can only reiterate all the positive reviews. It's a gem. Hosts: Warm, caring & exceptionally kind (including cute cat hiding behind reception) Apartments: Quiet and new with high-end fit out (Scholtes etc) Views: Ah-maze-zing. Love: Waking up to the sound of the waves below (& Shany's fudge) Recommend: One bedroom apartment front row. This place never disappoints and we're nit-pickers... More
