The view is glorious, the service exceptional, and the room was perfect. We stayed in the Luxury Beachfront unit and were blown away by the room, the bathroom (amazing shower!) and huge kitchen facilities. The beds are super comfy with glorious crisp sheets, electric blankets, the works. It is literally beachfront, unlike anywhere else in Whitianga. Kate made us feel... More

What a great boutique Motel! Superb sea view of the whole of the bay. Could not fault a thing. Extremely clean & tidy & superb decor, comfy bed and great hospitality and service - nothing was any trouble. Very quite no road noise! So lovely to walk out onto the beach for a stroll. It was early July & it... More

Most people think of a beach resort as a summer holiday but we had a great time there in the middle of July. True we were very lucky with the weather but when it did get rough the sound of the sea so close was really amazing. A short walk across the lawn and you were on the beach. The... More

'Lovely and clean, including the outside spa. Fantastic views from upstairs but the downside is going down the rear stairs to access beach or spa. I guess you can't have it both ways so choose what is most important. The owners are really helpful and I would stay here again.

We stayed here because it was a ground floor level unit fitted out for wheelchair accessibility and it has a good walk in shower practical for a wheelchair user. This was a spotlessly clean, compact, space, which could have been so much better, if the second sleeping area had been incorporated into the main unit, for use by two people... More

I stayed at the Beachfront Resort for two days and had a fabulous stay! They really thought of everything - the kitchen and bathroom were both fully stocked and modern, the windows had blackout blinds, the main bedroom could be fully partitioned off, there was a "sand dunk" pan outside the door for sandy feet, etc. The owners were lovely...

The Beachfront Resort has a great location right on the beautiful Buffalo Beach. From the room there is always the sea to watch and the people who enjoy it. There is a barbecue area and a spa to share with the other guests. The details that marred our vist were all inside our unit. The bed was soft and any... More

Even though I was down here for one night it was by far the best place I have stayed at so far. The view in the morning is just fantastic and being beach front eliminates some if not all traffic noise. I would love to have stayed longer however due to work commitments I could not....maybe next time.

Our two night stay here was very enjoyable! Although there is just enough parking in the front, so unloading may be a tight squeeze if they are full, all is forgiven the minute you walk in and: a) see the view; b) note the rooms and bath are spotlessly clean, and c) every amenity has been thoughtfully made available for...

Stayed here for two nights with family. The location is superb with spectacular views across the bay directly from the balcony. The property is located right on the beach with direct access from the lawn where there is a communal BBQ facility. There is also a spa pool for use. Kate the owner was very friendly and helpful.
