The setting, character and layout of the villas is all top class. There are several villas dotted along the hilltop overlooking the west coast. Dave the owner welcomed us and told us some of the history of the villas and showed us the way to an amazing bench on the hillside overlooking Ahu Ahu Beach. Inside is a spacious studio... More

Perched on the west coastline just below New Plymouth the villas or the lodge is the perfect place to retreat to. The accom is rustic but v clean and well considered. The fire pit lit nightly is the perfect way to watch the stars. The air is so pure. The hosts are simply wonderful.

We’ve enjoyed staying in a villa at Ahu Ahu in the past but this time we chose the lodge to stage a celebration for my partner’s 70th birthday. The lodge is spacious, has two bedrooms, a gorgeous view, floor to ceiling windows with doors opening to access the beautiful outdoor space with lovely landscaping as well as great kitchen facilities...

Love the friendliness and peace and tranquility both inside and outside Ahuahu Villas. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen contained everything we needed to make a simple meal.The perfect spot to unwind and reconnect as a family. Would recommend the nearby deli for a morning coffee.

Our expectations were high before arrival and they were well exceeded. Our welcome by the owners was friendly and informative. We learned how they had built the villas and how much care and attention they had given to their private location and construction from largely recycled materials. The view overlooking the sea and nearby beach is beautiful and highly memorable.... More

The nicest accommodation I have stayed in for a long time. I love everything about it. The view, the privacy, the beautiful materials used in construction, made the villas a special place to stay. The owner went out of her way to make us welcome and accommodated us at short notice. We were fortunate to secure a night in the... More

If you really want to "get away from it all" then this is a wonderful choice. We mixed relaxation with adventure. We sat outside enjoying our coffee (provided) first thing, listening to the ocean, walked on the beach, hiked up to the trig station at the end of the road (a couple of hours return through native bush), walked the...

Last September I flew to New Zealand North Island for a month to experience what the island had to offer. Of all the establishments I stayed at, Ahu Ahu Beach Villas was the best.
