A peaceful niche (when the neighbours are not mowing lawns) with some mature trees and plants. Not too far from the beach and the township services. Not very modern, but the amenities were there and kept clean and in good order. A newspaper at the door and a range of beverages and some biscuits. Friendly and obliging service ... no... More

There is a lot to like about this place. The location is excellent just half a k or so from the magnificent beach, with the small shopping centre nearby (although avoid the Oakura Fish Shop - poor quality and exorbitant pricing). It is also only 15 minutes to New Plymouth. The grounds are very nice and there is a bbq... More

Comfortable motel unit, set a lovely garden setting. Unit had everything you needed, space , comfortable bed and was very clean. If you like modern , then this place will disappoint. The owner was very friendly , however the cats are really friendly and quite happy to make themselves at home in your unit. Short walk to beach . Nice... More

Well equipped, clean, comfortable accommodation in a quiet area. Great nearby facilities - shops, restaurants etc. plus beach. Close to New Plymouth where most of the motels seem to be on main streets in town. This is the more peaceful alternative. Very helpful hosts. Have stayed before and would stay again.

On pulling into the driveway, I noticed 4 or so scruffy looking cats lying casually on the driveway and in front of some of the units. Get to my room and start to settle in and almost trip over one. Unit is nice and tidy, spacious with all kitchen facilities, nice queen sized bed. TV is a bit on the... More

Hi There Sorry the cats bothered you, We don’t have Four cats but next doors cats visit the property from time to time as well so that may have been the reason there were so many cats? With regards to the shower temperature we will look at the shower temperature setting as it was only last month the temperature was... More

This property met our needs perfectly. Well located, easy walking distance to the black beach. Property is well maintained and clean. We really like being able to park right next to your door. Kitchen was fine and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Recommended

A very clean and friendly motel to stay in. The manager/owner (?) was lovely and offered help whenever we asked. The room was tidy and well equipped for our needs. A lovely play area for the kids, with a good sized BBQ area for our use, which my kids loved playing cafés in. The friendly pets were an added bonus... More

Stayed here on a last minute change of plans and was pleasantly surprised! Clean, cozy & a 5 minute walk to the beach! A perfect place to relax! Everything about this place was perfect! There was even a mandarin tree bursting with deliciousness!

Stayed here over Queens birthday weekend - found this place by just driving by. Stayed in a studio room, very clean and comfortable with a full kitchen. Nice new bedspreads. Shower (no bath). Quiet and a 2 minute walk to Oakura surf beach. Walking distance to a Four Square, Fish n Chip shop, restaurant, sports bar, chemist. 10 min drive... More
