My family and I stayed 2 nights to attend a friends wedding. All the guests stayed at the hotel and the ceremony was held outdoors / on site with magnificent ocean views. We liked everything about the place - clean, fully equipped self contained units; swimming pool and private spas, direct private access to the beach - good fishing - a great place that we will go back to.

Room Tip: A great, slightly off the beaten track place to enjoy the winter-less north.

My husband and I were lucky enough to come across this place on our way up north. We had planned on staying in town for just one night until we saw the spectacular view! It was our first trip to New Zealand and we had so much to see and do but both my husband and I could not get enough of this place. We did end up staying for two nights. It was just a perfect place. We loved the little cottage we stayed in. It had everything you would need. The couple running the place were so polite and fun to talk to. They made us feel right at home.
There are many things to do at this location. Pool, hot tub, playground for the kids, tennis courts, game room and private beaches to explore. The town had a little grocery store and eating places. Everyone was so nice!
We are definitely coming back soon. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary so this trip was just for us, but now we can't wait to bring our kids back to this lovely place!

Room Tip: I imagine all the rooms were great! They certainly had a great view!

We stayed two nights at Pacific Rendezvous in a comfortable, well equipped and clean apartment. The large grounds are well kept, and the private peninsula location overlooks Tutukaka harbour and out to the Poor Knights Islands. The views are spectacular. Managers, Glenys and Paul, are helpful and obliging, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. A private sandy beach, perfect for swimming in summer, is accessed via a walkway on the property. Launch trips to the Poor Knights are available from Tutukaka harbour and there are numerous lovely beachs nearby. We will be returning.

We stayed here for 6 nights in October 2011. The fully equipped units are very spacious with huge picture windows of the spectacular views. From Whangarei, It's a pleasant 1/2 hour picturesque drive resembling the English country side, with orchards, hedges, horses and forest and then the amazing ocean views.

The spa was lovely and warm and the pool area was well kept and modern looking. There is also a great children's playground where you can relax also enjoy the spectacular almost 360 degree views!

We stayed one night at the Pacific Rendevous on our way north. Our unit was clean, comfortable and well equipped with views over the Tutakaka Harbour entrance. The spa pool was great. The service was friendly and welcoming. Our stay wasn't really long enough to explore the area. We are hoping to go back again sometime and stay at least two or three days.

We spend about 40 days traveling thru New Zealand and this was our starting point. This is an amazing Motel Resort. Cottages are cozy and very comfortable. From there you can take a trip to the village and put yourself on a boat directly to dive at Poor Knights Island. This is a great view you have from the gardens of Pacific Rendezvous. Now it is just memories of a perfect time we spent in New Zealand. Nice and friendly staff. Beautiful gardens, amazing views. The cottage is fully equipped and you have a balcony (we have chosen one with balcony) to rest your eyes and body. We could cook and taste a good NZ wine. Would like to be there right now...

Dated, clean, wonderful woman who seemed to be running the place when we were there. Great views that are beyond amazing. Nice kitchen, so cooking and dining outside your own unit with cliff top views of the bay and the Pacific are possible. Allow plenty of time to get there from Auckland as most of the route consists of picturesque winding roads through forest and mountains.
