STAY RIGHT ON THE BEACH ... Our superb absolute beachfront location is the secret to the special charm of Beachfront Resort. Uniquely in Whitianga, there is no road or traffic, only garden and Pohutukawa trees between you and the seashore. Each comfortable, immaculate Beachfront Unit has full kitchen facilities, SKY TV, and a private patio or balcony with spectacular uninterrupted sea views of Mercury Bay.Wireless broadband Internet access and guest laundry also available. Kayaks, body boards, beach games, a trampoline, heated spa pool and BBQ are provided for guests so you can enjoy life on the beach right here. A private and peaceful haven only minutes away from the buzz of Whitianga’s shops and restaurants, Beachfront Resort is conveniently located for exploring the whole Peninsula with easy day trips to Coromandel town, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach. Your Hosts Kate and Paul Dimock Beachfront

Stayed here for 4 nights.... probably the best placed ‘motel’ we’ve stayed in in New Zealand and certainly one of the most welcoming.... Fabulous clean, well appointed room, great kitchen facilities, powerful shower, walked straight from room into the sea at high tide! BBQ was

I would recommend this place and we enjoyed our stay there. Friendly staff clean room, nice view. Excellent except we could not open our balcony doors since the people next to us smoke and we abhor the smell.

The view is exactly what the picture showed. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable. We used the BBQ, the spa, the kayaks, and had a wonderful time and would recommend it.

What a lovely place to spend some time out! Well appointed, with a very comfortable queen bed and two singles and a kitchenette. The location was awe inspiring being right on the waterfront. The only negative is if you are in a ground level apartment, you can hear every footstep

Hi Sandra P. RabnDazz is quite right. Most Beachfront Units have the configuration King/Queen and two singles. Some also have a sofabed, and can accommodate a 5th guest. This works well enough for families with 3 smaller children, but is very tight living for 5 adult sized people. The best option for your family would be the King Beachfront Unit which is a larger suite overall. We can add a rollaway bed for the 5th person.

Hi , Average temperatures here in December range from a low of 15C to a high of 22C. This is our early summer and the weather can be quite variable, but not usually particularly hot at night. In NZ generally A/C is common in many of the large hotels but not so much in smaller properties and private homes. When it is hot at night (Feb) we prefer to sleep with the windows open and enjoy the sea breeze and sound of the waves. :) regards Kate

Hi Melanie, Kayaks are available for guests to use throughout daylight hours each day, within the boundaries of safe weather conditions of course. Beachfront Units are quieter than the Beachside Unit which is closest to the road. Beachfront Resort is the only accommodation in Whitianga on the beach side of the road. All the Beachfront Units are well off the road and living areas open out to a balcony or patio with views across the garden to the beach and bay. So there is no traffic between your room and the view, and no road noise. You can hear the waves though! Feel free to email me directly if you have any further questions. Regards, Kate from Beachfront Resort

"All rooms face east, but we loved the ground floor for easy beach access"
"We paid more for the absolute beachfront room with balcony."
"all good units we stayed in unit 2 which is lower level"
"Top story best viewsw"
"Top floor units get great views. Package deals offered by this venue in conjunction with The Lost Spring Spa are good value."
