We had a fantastic 4 night stay at Shores in the Manaia Apartment. The apartment was comfortable, modern, clean, and spacious. The hospitality from Lil & Ron was first class. At the end of each day, having either been out walking a track, fishing, or beaching it, we relaxed out on the apartment deck and enjoyed a cold beverage and... More

Easter 2013 we made our second visit to "Shores". Our earlier visit in January 2013 was with family and the accomodation was just great for 2 adults and 3 children. Our 2nd visit was with Overseas Adults visitors and we chose the stand alone 2 Bedroom apartment. Our visitors and Us were most impressed with the quality of accomodation and... More

If you're looking for great accommodation in a peaceful location this is the place for you. Situated across the road from a quiet bay, this is a wonderful spot. You can walk the kayaks down for paddle in the bay or there were plenty of walks near by. The studio is more than a studio - the bedroom is separate... More

This was one of the best family holidays we had, thanks to Lil and Ron from Shores Accommodation. The accommodation is luxurious, comfortable, very tidy and great location. The kayaks and dinghy, available with the accommodation, was great fun and a nice way to explore the beautiful Taurikura Bay and nearby island. Whangarei Heads is a beautiful destination that offers... More

After a long haul flight the accommodation is well equipped and comfortable. The beds especially are the most comfortable ever. The owner Lil provided home made muffins in arrival. If you want to stay in this area you won't get better. Highly recommended.
