Wanted to spend time at a fat out place and a friend in NZ suggested Whitianga. The Apartment with full huge window to the sea had a stunning view and the beach was right across the street. Loacted in small town with easy access to the tourist attractions of Coromandel Cove, Hot Water Beach etc, this was a great place... More

Stayed a Wednesday and Thursday night at the Waterfront Apartments en the Penthouse 2 bedroom apartment. Very spacious and reasonably clean. The best of this unit is the fantastic sea view. Unit is for four people with two separate bedrooms. Was only my wife and I and they did not know we would only be 2 people but 2 sets... More

We stayed in the 1st floor studio apartment, wonderful view, even when the weather was terrible!! Good comfortable bed, nice and clean, great location and having a glassed in balcony was our furry friend's favourite spot.

Very friendly staff, great location, awesome view. The whole apartment was awesome. Easy walk to the cafe and bars, the fish and chip and Four Square Stores around the corner were great. We would stay here again

Nice place to watch sunrise, walk along the beach, enjoy The Lost Spring or catch a boat trip. A little disadvantage is a road right in front, and we were surprised a little bit by the outstanding amount of ice in the fridge/freezer.

The location is fantastic for the beach and centre. I paid for 2 studio apts and was upgraded to the Penthouse by request. That was so kind but it wasn't being used and the cost was actually cheaper than the 2 studios, so a financial gain for the owner. All sounds good so far..... However the place would have benefitted... More

We had the most brilliant stay with our kids and dogs! Directly across from the beach. The managers are extremely helpful, caring, friendly and so accommodating! We will always return to the Waterfront because nothing was a hassle for them. Highly recommend 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Everything about the Waterfront Apartments was great - the service, the apartment and the magnificent view. It's just across from the beach and the apartment we had had a view right across Mercury Bay - magic! We would really recommend this place. The only negative of giving it a great review is that others will book it up

We stayed for two nights in the penthouse apartment, it was spotless, very friendly staff and helpful with local area information. Lovely views out to the beach and sleeping at night with the sound of the sea was great. If you are looking for accommodation that is clean, close to the beach and within walking distance to the town and... More
