“Outstanding views”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We stayed in double bed studio overlooking the bay between Easter and ANZAC day. The views were amazing from our room and patio.
The room itself was very modern with full tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge. There were also plenty of cutlery and crockery for 2 people and bathrobes were in the large wardrobe. The bathroom was very modern with a large walk in shower and very nice smelling toiletries.
Our studio was serviced daily and the manager was v helpful. The mini Easter eggs were a nice touch. Watching the sunrise from the bed in the mornings is something that we will always remember.
We had a wonderful stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Doubtless Bay Villa's-next time we would love to be able to afford a villa! Everyone we saw looked to be having a good time in a luxurious surrounding.
Well done to Steve and Shanny, staying at Doubtless Bay Villas was just the break we needed.

We stayed 2 nights here with Overseas Guests who were blown away by the magnificent views and the Front row Apartment. It was spacious, fully equipped and beautifully presented. The neutral decor was stunning.
We did day trips to Karikari Peninsula, Matai Bay, Carrington Golf Club (now Karikari) and Rangiputa.
Fabulous Resort and highly recommended.

Stayed here two nights at the end of our month long honeymoon in NZ. The apartments are beautiful, lovely decor, fittings, and everything you need to make stay comfortable. Toiletries were nice in the bathroom. View is amazing!

This hotel is truly the best located of all those we saw as we drove through Northland. The views from the room we had were stunning. The room itself was beautiful and were well decorated.

The negatives were that there were dead spiders and other insects along the walls. Given that it would take 1 min to vacuum them, I thought it was disappointing that they were there even after our room had been serviced. The other was the aunts. We had to spray and wipe down the kitchenette many times on arrival and throughout our stay. We couldn't make use of their tea and coffee because there were aunts all over them! Not sure what they could do to fix that but it was the one detractor from being a 5 star hotel.

Despite that, we loved the place and would recommend it to others.

Perfect weekend away, very tidy accommodation with an amazing view and living space. All the facilities available and a quick walk to the beach. Close to some fantastic beaches in New Zealand's far North.

I'm afraid to say too much in this review as then the secret will be out! We stayed in Villa Number 22, a corner unit at the front, so the views were spectacular. The whole place is comfortable, spacious, well equipped, homely, views you can just sit and look out at all day, so if it rains it doesn't matter. Steve and Shanny were great. One of us had a (really good) birthday and we needed a tin and scales to bake a cake and they lent us theirs. Good location, near Mangonui, near Kare Kare Peninsula, and a great beach just at the bottom of the road. Highly recommend Doubtless Bay Villas, we'll definitely come again

I had a 3 night stay with friends who had a 2 level 2 bedroom villa for a week. I stayed in an immaculate, spacious studio apartment directly below, with uninterrupted views of Doubtless Bay and the hillside from the floor to ceiling side window, an extra bonus from being in the end villa. Opening two internal doors created a 3 level 3 bedroom villa with views to die for. The verandah off the living/dining area comfortably seats 6 for outdoor dining and the kitchen was very well equipped, which made cooking easy and enjoyable. There is also a toilet and separate laundry on the living room level. Picturesque Mangonui, with its great fish shop and 1904 Cafe, is a 5 minute drive away and the walk to the beach is about the same. There's a tennis court with great views and the hosts were happy to provide racquets and balls. Everything looked clean, new and well maintained. The only thing to complain about was my tennis playing.

Room Tip: No. 22, the end villa is great because of the side windows. The second bedroom upstairs had brillian...
