Overlooking a fine beach we went along for an overnight stay in July. Off season there was no evening meal but the two sumptuous apartments had all the facilities for self catering but we were on a very short haul. The meal we had some kilometers way at the Waihau Lodge was atrocious. The lady owner had travelled with her... More

We stayed for two nights in the self-contained single bedroom unit at the back to the main house. It was spacious, clean, tidy and quite. Jane is a great host and gave us numerous tips of local surrounding and even gifted us a fresh catch of the sea after we arrived!! (I cannot recall the name of the fish, maybe... More

I stated for one night on a drive around the cape. I had previously planned to stay at Te Kaha where meals were available but was enjoying the drive so much I kept driving and was prepared to take pot luck with accommodation. I am glad I did!! The apartments were full so Jan was able to offer me the... More

My wife and I are retired and we decided to take a long road trip from Leigh to Gisborne to visit family. We found the Oceanside Apartments on the internet and checked various reviews etc before deciding to book for one night. The property consists of two separate buildings. The apartment at the rear has absolutely no view of the... More

We stopped here for one night on our trip round the East Cape. We had the ground floor apartment from which we looked straight down the drive to the sea and beach 25 yards away. The apartment was clean and well equipped for our overnight needs. We had requested dinner and this was great. Brought to our room we had... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a 5 day Roadtrip. The great thing about the place is that there are only two units so it feels like you're pretty much on your own. The unit was large and well maintained. Its about 25m from the beach and you're treated to some spectacular sunsets. I'd disagree that it... More

Oceanside has had some lovely reviews and I think in it's heyday it was very good. The owner was easy to deal with and the lady that she has managing the place was lovely as well. Unfortunately the owner is not there much anymore, and the downstairs unit is starting to look a bit tired. It was also very cold... More

Stayed here for 1 night during a 4 week road trip. The Accommodation is in a peaceful and stunning location with a quiet beach just the other side of the road. The rooms were nicely decorated and well equipped & our host served us an excellent evening meal and superb breakfast. This is a perfect location if you want to... More

We stayed in the back unit (separate from the owner's house) and had a large and bright apartment to enjoy. The beach is just across the road so could enjoy both evening and morning strolls easily. We requested the hot breakfast (not included in the rate) and it was delivered to our room piping hot and was substantial. Would be... More
