My wife and I have just spent five nights at this lovely, spacious motel just three hundred metres from Buffalo Beach. It has been three years since we were last here and the standards have not dropped. The hosts always do a little bit extra, very helpful! Although the weather was unpleasant it was great to get back to our... More

We are travelling through New Zealand for two months and this has been one of the best finds of our trip so far. The apartment is in a great location and is very spacious. The kitchen had everything you could need (something that can't be said for a lot of motel rooms). There is a washing machine in the apartment... More

Run by the owners, our room at this motel iwa spacious and had a 'well-tried-and-tested' feel about it. It was not the latest in modern designs, but was well equipped and even had a washing machine (although we didn't use it). Whitianga is an expensive place to stay, and some other establishments wanting a minimum of more than one night.... More

We had one-bedroom holiday accommodation. The bedroom was a full-size bedroom with queen bed, our two grandkids shared a double bed in the lounge/kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is full-sized, fully set up with not only stove/oven and microwave, but electric frypan and even a large slow cooker and rice cooker. Shower, seperate full size bath and separate laundry made this... More

We cant wait to come back two famlies of four fitted nicely into the three bedroom unit and we had all the mod cons and a complete kitchen. Laundry and sky were a nice surprise. Very nice host they were willing and able to help with everthing.

Travelled around the Coromandel in a group of 4 friends, with this property selected on the basis of sleeping arrangements, and price. The total cost was approx $160 between 4 of us, which was fantastic compared to what we were looking at spending for backpackers etc. The property is on a very quiet back street, a few blocks back from...
