“Classic seaside village accomadation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

Upon arrival we were treated with the utmost quality and respect in a country that had just held the rugby world cup and could probably be forgiven if they had enough of foreigners for the time being but no, everyone involved with this property was wonderful. Handy position to beach close to town and all you could hear was the ocean.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

My partner and I travelled to Whangamata with friends without pre booking a hotel and found this gem just back from the beach. The helpful staff were happy to show us through the property and gave us an excellent deal for a two night stay.
The kitchen and barbeque facilities were excellent and there was plenty of channels on the TV so we could relax in the property.
There was also a garage for the car which contained a second bathroom, laundry facilities and an outdoor shower to get rid of the sand from the adjacent beach.
Linen in the bedrooms look a bit tired, but was comfortable and for the price was great value.

We stayed there for a week, the price was reasonable, the accommodation, the service and the position were superb. Don't even think about staying anywhere else.

This is a great place to stay. Highly recommended. So clean and equipped with everything you could possibly want. Very spacious and comfortable.

It's so close to the beach and so convenient for everything else too. The staff are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

Definitely the best place to stay in Whangamata.

My wife and I stayed at the Marine for 2 nights in February - we wish it had been longer. Our New Zealand holiday involved 13 stops but this was very clearly the best accommodation we had. Our 3-storey apartment (just one block from the beach) had on the ground floor a double garage, full laundry facilities, a shower and a toilet. On the second floor were 3 bedrooms (the master very spacious), a shower and a toilet. The top floor consisted of a huge open plan living area with dining area, full kitchen (including dishwasher) with central work area/breakfast bar, a sitting area with TV & DVD and a balcony with dining table and private barbecue. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the staff very friendly, efficient and helpful. All this for just NZ$180 a night - absolutely fabulous. Whangamata itself doesn't offer much in the way of quality eateries, the best (and nearest) was the Oceanas but on both nights we were there it was being used for private functions. We found a super butchers in town and used the apartment facilities to "eat in" on both nights. Thoroughly recommended.

My wife and 2 daughters stayed here for 3 nights in Feb 07.

The apartment we had was first class and I would have no hesitation in using them again if we ever return to Whangama.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment - 1 double room downstairs with its own shower and toilet and also a double garage on the ground floor.

In the upstairs level there were 2 bedrooms, 1 toilet, 1 shower room, open plan living room/dining room and kitchen. All the kitchen appliances were in new condition. There was also a large balcony.

The location is great too - 1 minute from the beach and the Surf Club, a few minutes walk to Oceanas, but a wee bit longer to the town.

Overall the apartment was very fresh, clean and in tip top condition. The admin. office manager and his wife are very friendly and helpful too.

Highly recomended.
