We booked a Studio Apartment & found it to be a little too small to call comfortable. We received a warm welcome from Vivienne on arrival & found the apartment to be clean & tidy. The bathroom was small with only just enough room to use the toilet. The location is very good, beach across the road, supermarket, cafe &... More

Thanks to Vivienne for her generous hospitality,which was second to none.Our one bedroom apartment was spacious,light and clean,as well as being only 50 metres from the beautiful beach. Also thanks for recommending our cruise, which was fantastic. Again thanks Vivienne for your hospitality and generosity.The snapper caught the morning we arrived was delicious by the way.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review after your stay with us. Our weather has been lovely this summer and being able to share our snapper catch with our overseas visitors gives us a buzz. Somehting special from the Coromandel. Best wishes and we would love to see you again. More

Excellent accommodation - what a shame we couldn't stay longer than three nights ! Met on arrival by Vivienne, superb host giving us a very warm welcome. Our upstairs apartment was really spacious, immaculately clean, really comfortable and well appointed. We had a reasonable view of the beach only fifty metres away, despite being set back behind the front building.... More

Four of us stayed one night in a 1 bedroom apartment and a connected 1 bedroom unit. Both were on the upper floor of a building at the back of the lot, which is across the road from the beach. There is an interesting view across the bay, but it is partially blocked by houses that are closer to the... More

A big thankyou to our host Viv. We arrived on our roadbike (long overdue weekend away without the kiddies) & we were able to park our bike in her garage which was very much appreciated. Our studio apartment was perfect for the night & Viv was very accomodating. Clean, warm & relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Water... More

My wife and I stayed on March 15. We were very impressed with our friendly host and beautifully appointed suite. We were wonderfully cool for sleeping with a nice breeze from the ocean. We were thoroughly satisfied and would recommend blue water apartments to anyone. No suggestions for improvement. We enjoyed a nice stroll along the beach and a morning... More

Thank you for your review, I am so pleased I was able to make your stay at Whitianga a memorable one. We are only a small motel but we endeavour to give our guests the best service we possibly can. Maybe we will see you again visiting the lovely Coromandel Peninsula. All the best. More

We found Blue Water by chance and could not believe our luck. It was about 10 meters from the sea, close to restaurants and supermarket and owned by a lovely lady, Vivienne. The welcome was warm, and we were encouraged to use the decking area in the front garden where we sat and watched the sun go down. The accommodation... More

We were looking for a base to discover the wonderful coromandel and couldn't have found a better place. It was only a short hop to Cathedral cove and hot water beach or the wonderful beaches to the north. The owner was warm, friendly and helpful. The rooms were large, comfortable and had everything we needed, the facilities were modern and... More

Highly recommend this motel to everyone! Best location-water front, walk distance to town center and wharf. Best facility-Huge screen TV, moden shower room. Best service-friendly host. Best duvet and comfortable beds! Best price- a 2 bedroom unit is only $240 per night for 4 adults and 1 child! We will definitely come back!

We arrived before the check-in and the host greeted us and let us in our room (2nd floor studio). The location was perfect - right near the beach and the central business street. We were able to walk to the Lost Spring. It had a great beach house feel. We were there during winter and it was chilly. The room... More
