Stunning ocean view from the living area. The room is warm and cosy. Interesting decoration in the bathroom, very stylish and cute. Outdoor breakfast in a sunny winter morning, nothing is better than this except having outdoor breakfast in a sunny summer morning.

Lovely place with amazing view, will definitely return when we stay in Taranaki next. We loved the fact the villas were made out of recycled building material. Service was top notch, owners very friendly making you feel welcome.

I stayed two nights here at the end of July -- winter time in New Zealand. Stunning ocean view, and really lovely, quirky accommodation. Upstairs is a loft space with two twin beds, below is an open-plan living space with "master bedroom" underneath the loft. Galley-style kitchen is basic, but has everything you need. Same can be said for the... More

The villas are built with a lot of recycled materials, & so much thought they look great & space wise are very well designed with plenty of windows to capture the view of the ocean & sunsets with the beach just a stroll away!

We stayed at the Ahu Ahu Oraukawa Lodge from the 6th - 8th March and were not disappointed. The location is absolutely stunning with panoramic views of the ocean. Nuala was a very welcoming and attentive host. She made sure we had everything we needed and ensured everything was in order for a fantastic stay. The Lodge is luxurious with... More

Thanks to David and Nuala who were very welcoming and attentive hosts. The cottages have lots of character with interesting architectural details. Ours was well appointed and had everything we needed. Gorgeous views. Very cozy and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Ahu Ahu Villas to other travelers

We stayed at the Ahu Ahu Beach Villas during the WOMAD Festival of 2015 and enjoyed every moment of it. So much so that we made a special trip back from New Plymouth (where the festival was held) every afternoon to spend a few hours relaxing and soaking up the beauty of the surroundings and the vistas of the sea....

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.
