Highly recommend the Beachfront Resort in Whitianga! It was bliss, from the moment we walked through the door of our unit and saw the view to the beach just in front it was WOW. So wonderful to be right on the beach, and have the spa, BBQ area, loungers ... so well set out. Our upstairs unit was lovely -... More

I'd just like to say thank you for a wonderful stay! Absolutely amazing views and the most welcoming hosts, the room was immaculate, you clearly pay great attention to detail and have the most beautifully presented rooms, there wasnt even a single cob web on the balcony! Now that is clean! Thank you very much we will definitely be back... More

Stayed for Labour weekend in a lovely bright clean newly refurbished unit right on Buffalo beach. The garden has direct beach access and the barbecue and bar area is ideal for breakfast or sundowners. Very friendly owner who gave us ideas for walks, boat trips and restaurants.

Exactly what you want when you're in The Coromandel! Beachfront. Spacious apartment with everything you could possibly need. HIGHLY recommend. We went as a couple, but would be fantastic for families with young ones.

Despite the intermittent weather, we had an awesome vacation; this was largely due to Kate and Paul's hospitality and the Beachfront Resort's facilities. Days were spent exploring Coromandel's gems, like Cathedral Cove and the Hot Water Beach, where evenings were spent barbecuing food purchased from the local butcher, then relaxing in the spa. It's hard going back to an existence... More

We spent three nights in the two bedroomed penthouse at a rate which was unbeatable. The location and view were fantastic and the apartment itself was spacious and comfortable 50 Channel Sky helped keep the children amused. The beach was just across the road too! The internet was operated on a two hour voucher system which was not the most... More

Lovely direct water views, sunrise from bed! Immaculately clean suite; comfortable bed and warm hosts. Short drive to great restaurants, cafes and the Lost Spring (a must-visit). Would love to return in warmer months.

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
