Awesome stay, perfect spot close to town and the beach. Great Queens birthday weekend in winter. Kids enjoyed it most fantastic shower, BBQ for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Will most definitely be back with the family.

Great location for visiting Whangamata - fantastic beach and surfing waves. Family room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Only stayed for one night, but time permitting, would have stayed longer. Lovely hosts, great value. The O'Sullivan family (Ireland)

Units were lovely, very clean and comfortable, walking distance to great restaurants (we liked Argo). Awesome people to deal with, very accomodating, let us borrow the hose to wash out our Jetski after a day out on it & park it securely. Thanks for everything. We will be back next time we are passing through

Very peaceful motel in quiet street. Short walk to town and the beach. Lovely and clean and very warm welcoming owners. Will definitely be back. A great location for a short break - summer or winter!!!.

My husband stayed here when he had to go to Whangamata in February for family matters. ON his return, he couldn't praise it highly enough. I made the reservation for him, and had to change it because his plans changed. The lady that took both calls was accommodating and helpful. Many thanks, we've decided this is THE place to stay...

Well appointed motel unit, super peaceful very near to beach and town and possibly the best shower in New Zealand. La Dolce Vita "bellisimo". Hosts were extremely pleasant and helpful. A brilliant place to chill out after touring before heading for the city. Would recommend if you want peace and quiet and a most wonderful sandy beach.

Got a special off Grab One. Nice little motel, comfortable bed, quiet could do with a better TV and when the person in the next unit had a shower it was very noisy. However it was value for money. My only criticism was that we weren't serviced...maybe I didn't read the fine print.
