Planning my next trip to NZ reminded me that I never did reviews for my last one. Waimana wasn’t on my original itinerary, we ended up there after a problem at another location, but it ended up being a terrific solution for a place to stay a couple of nights. Beautiful views from the property over the water, especially at...

We recently stayed at Waimana Point for the weekend and highly recommend it. It is located so close to Auckland and yet feels like a world away - very private, relaxing and quiet. The accommodation itself was very comfortable and well appointed, and the views are gorgeous. Hosts Gloria and Geoff are fantastic - they were unobtrusive but also very...

For a simple weekend get away you cannot beat this property. Amazing hosts, amazing location. Spectacular views. So quiet yet not so far. We were fortunate to have great July weather but did not want to leave. Spoil yourself and get up there and relax. You will be as impressed. Beats the Bay of Islands, hands down. Many thanks
