Recently stayed at the studio villa and couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Included with our stay were beautiful, sweeping vistas of the sea from a perch a couple hundred feet above the beach, a spacious French-inspired villa with its own table, wooden slat-style windows that open on all sides of the villa to let the breeze and views in,...

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful lodge for 3 days. Every attention to detail was perfect. The views are outstanding and the owners go out of their way to welcome guests. Would highly recomend a visit to the gardens and zoo in New Plymouth. Thanks for creating and sharing such a beautiful place.

I recently facilitated a workshop on behalf of a local company at Ahu Ahu and it was fabulous. Catering was wonderful and service couldn't be faulted. Not only were all the facilities there you would imagine but the location is superb. Great views, peaceful and inspiring, perfect as an informal, relaxed workshop venue.

I had a really amazing stay here. It was honestly one of the best experiences of New Zealand hospitality I've ever had and I am from this country. I've already recommended it to anyone who would listen. Not only was the hospitality amazing, the villas themselves were incredibly designed and the vistas were to put it simply: breathtaking. The sound... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Ahu Ahu Beach Villas. The villas were situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean with views across the beach to New Plymouth. Stunning location and not too far from activities like Mount Taranaki and New Plymouth. The villas were very clean and set up for all you need. Hosts David and... More

A more worthwhile stay you cannot have. These quaint and endearing villas have the most magnificent of magnificent views. Upon arrival we were so surprised by the feel of the place and the location that we were unsure if we were knocking on the right door. But lo and behold we were in fact at our destination. What more is... More

What an amazing place, feels like a mix of french country chique with NZ sea and vistas. We had a lovely stay at the cottage every little detail was prepared so we made a big fire in the firebrazier and talkes with other guests. Good stay Good people!

Our family of four stayed for four nights - we had booked for three but just had to stay another night. The villas were all booked so we stayed in the Lodge which was just perfect, when the weather was nice we opened up the doors and looked out over Oakura Beach; and when the weather turned a bit stormy...
