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 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...

We're a family with 4 kids aged 4,7,11,13. We spent two nights at Ahu Ahu. First of all I must say the place is awesome! The chalets are very special and the view is just relaxing. We were planning to surf, but the weather was very bad and the surfing guide we booked the lesson with cancelled the lesson due... More

I don't normally sleep well when away from home, but at Ahu Ahu I slept like a rock. Comfy and peaceful. The units are well presented and interesting. Love the recycled nearly everything. I can't believe someone moaning about them being "dated" - they're supposed to be like that! Yes, not the cheapest place to stay, but worth the price... More
