Amazing place to stay! Excellent service! From both owners and cleaning staff! Beautiful view of the beach! Best place I have ever stayed at! Would highly recommend this place to everyone who is going to Whitianga! I will be going back here for sure! :)

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

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...
