Lovely beach to walk along nearby. Apartment was super clean and modern, included the basics but also some lovely extras such as a coffee plunger, toiletries, heated towel rail... More

We had the pleasure of staying in a lovely apartment in this prime location in Whitianga . The apartment had every possible facility and was in a great waterfront location. We happily had dinner next door at No 8 and this too was a very enjoyable experience. We hope to be back very soon.

Good location and nice views on to the Wharf. Close to the ferry or for doing the boat trips. The apartment was clean and spacious. The front bedroom my Mum stayed in was a bit noisy, but I found it quiet in the back room. Nice to have a fan in the hot weather. Good sized kitchen, although we were... More

Close to all bars and restaurants. 2 minute walk to the ferry. Children's park across the road. We hadn't booked but that was not a problem, we had a choice of 2... More

Stayed in the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Penthouse which had plenty of space for our family of 5. The deck was huge and included an outdoor table for 10, which was plenty for us while alfresco dining and enjoying the beautiful views of mercury bay and the estuary. The pool was a good size and depth which kept our 8... More

Felt completely at home while staying at the Esplanade. Found the managers extremely helpful and down to earth Kiwi's. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with fabulous views over the harbour, ferry landing and playground across the road. The room was extremely big, and was ideally suited to our needs of family which included teenagers. We had an additional... More
