Absolutely loved this property. Gorgeous location, lovely clean accommodations. Very much enjoyed meeting and talking with owners David and Nuala Marshall. Highly recommend this location. Loved it so much I think I may move to Taranaki when I retire!

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

Go no further, as I always stay here when visiting New Plymouth. I have paid the same amount for something right in New Plymouth and got claustrophobia in one minute walking into accomodation. At Ahu Ahu Villas, I am inclined to spend more time with my children as it is right next to the beauty of the beach, rock pools,... More

We stayed here on a recent trip to New Zealand and Taranaki for business and I was delighted with the villas, their location and of course the charasmatic Dave who owns the place. The 4 villas are located on a rise overlooking the Tasman, and of course the famous surf. They are eclectic in their design but so comfortable and... More

The view out to sea from the Lodge patio was gorgeous as was the look of surprise on the face of my birthday boy! Especially when Precision Helicopters flew in and whisked him and the boys away for a scenic flight up the coast and over the summit of Mt Taranaki. Topped off with a stunning sunset dinner with guests... More

Thanks for arranging the 60th celebration here ... great to hear the birthday boy had a fabulous time. We enjoyed our part in the surprise too!! Yes, I agree, the weather couldn't have been better and so glad the Villas and Lodge worked for your special occasion. More
