We had a fantastic relaxing 3 days. Amazing out look to the rugged west coast. Easy access to the beach and coastal walks Villas were well thought out for privacy, views and spaciousness. The units are built from demolition timber of a wharf which give its individual personality. We look forward to returning in more clement weather and use the... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed in the lodge, and were not disappointed at all! The decor and styling is great, the most comfortable beds ever, a huge pull down screen to watch movies on, a great fire pit outside, and the most incredible views. Wonderful hosts - thank you Nuala and Dave.

On an impulse we decided on a weekend away at Ahu Ahu, 12 or so years after our last visit. It's still everything we'd remembered and hoped it would. Very comfortable, spectacular in its location, everything so well thought out in its construction and presentation. Excellent, low key service.

Fantastic location, beautifully appointed studio, gorgeous views and lovely hostess. Only stayed one night but would have loved more. Close enough to New Plymouth but you need a car. Would definitely recommend.

A beautiful, peaceful place. Secluded and yet close to the city. Walks on the wild beach, mountain views, sweeping lawns. Spacious villas that are unique, unlike any hotel/motel room. And the most hospitable, charming, helpful hosts. I've stayed 3 times. love it!!!

An amazing little spot overlooking the beach. The hosts were very friendly and we only saw them when we needed to. Very quiet and a great little set up. Would definitely return to stay there next time I'm staying in the area.

fantastic venue and great hosts dave and nuala. They worked with us to help create a wonderful family event. offering as much or as little support as you need. The facilities are perfect for medium to large gatherings with semi commercial kitchen in the lodge, making it easy. Not to mention spectacular views

It was a night full of west coast weather drama. These villas are so sturdily built that we felt absolutely safe, despite the raging 100km winds outside. Wonderful vistas outside, and loved the recycled timber used for the interior. For those after a romantic escape its the perfect spot, but get the last villa on the right facing the sea... More
