Sadly we only had two nights at this delightful accommodation. It is right on the beach with stunning sunsets. Our lovely hosts arranged a day trip up the 90 Mile Beach to Cape Reinga and back which was terrific and great vale at only $55 including light lunch. Our apartment had a patio looking out to the beach and the facilities were excellent including a very comfortable bed and nice hot shower. Jenny and Paul hosted us for breakfast one morning and it was fresh and delicious. If you want to self cater pick supplies up in Kaitaia on your way through. We would definitely recommend Ahipara Beachfront to anyone.
