“Awesome ocean and harbour view apartment”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Our room had a view of the ocean and of the harbour on the other side, and that was really in line of the website's promises. Almost too nice to be true for us, who came from a country with no beaches.
The owners were very friendly and relaxed, highly respected our privacy but always helpful when we approached them.
The actual site at the end of the cliff was really nicely taken care of, there were a lot of entertainment options (tennis court, playground for little ones, private beach, spa pool, outdoor pool, etc).
I went there with my wife but I'm almost sure we'll go back with the kids because it was one of the best locations we've been to in NZ so far.

Room Tip: Have a look at their website's map page which shows the exact location of all the rooms on googl...

This motel is high up on a promontory with outstanding views over Tutukaka. Motel older but really clean. Issues with comfort in lounge - seating is sofa bed and 2 cane chairs not ideal for older person. Also people should know that even though it is a motel they only do a full service after seven days. If you want one earlier it costs an extra $35

Spectacular!Great in every way for all but the 18mth old who was determined to roll down the steep banks unsupervised! A different unit with lawn outside would have solved that - so don't let it stop you from making unforgettable memories.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights over Queen's Birthday. Very lucky with the weather, which was good as this is a great base for walks (short and long) and of course sea-based activities. You'd be a bit stuck for things to do if it was raining, but Whangarei isn't far away and of course you could just blob out.
Very pleased with the unit (29). Joined with no.30 and detached from the other units it has 3 (fairly small) bedrooms and a good sized outdoor area with new courtyard furniture and a modern (again small) bathroom. The kitchen/lounge and bedrooms are a bit dated, but that's almost a plus in our book-give me solid dated furnishings over modern cheap stuff any day!
Plenty of walks to do within a few minutes drive and of course for a full day you can wander a fair way either North or South to visit beaches and bush.
As everyone has mentioned, the views are fabulous. We were looking straight up the harbour to Tutukaka marina, but plenty of options for whatever type of view you want.
The grounds were very tidy and the two beaches beside the property well worth the short walk.
Fish and Chips at Ngunguru Takeaways were really good as was the coffee at Salt Air café. Both recommended.
We will be back again to do the couple of walks we didn't have time to do this time around.

Room Tip: We were very happy with unit 29. Sheltered from the Nor'easters and sun from about 9.30 through...

Our first ever visit to tutukaka couldn't have been better! Pacific rendezvous is situated in, what we believe, the most spectacular location on that lovely stretch of coastline. We stayed in the chalet, unit 28, and it was lovely, quiet and comfortable. A large deck out the front had been built around a grand old pohutukawa, the view from the deck being magnificent. We sat out there for drinks and nibbles and also for breakfast. A great location to base yourself for the local beaches and walks, and just a short drive to some awesome restaurants - we had some great meals at schnapper rock and oceans. We have vowed that we will be back again for another stay.

Room Tip: Personally, we will most likely book the chalet again (no.28).

Loved our stay here- spectacular views, private beaches on the property, private spa pool, great local restaurants- a wonderful get away spot. Rooms are dated and the couch dusty and uncomfortable, but everything else perfect, with friendly, helpful hosts and lots of beautiful walks and beaches at your doorstep.

Thanks for your review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. We agree the couch is due for replacement and the owners of this chalet have already purchased one. We are expecting delivery in around 3 weeks.
Kind Regards

Our two level room had the most amazing ocean/bay views - the balcony provided a fantastic space to sit with wine in hand and soak up the breathtaking views. Even on a chilly My afternoon.
The room was a little dated but clean, comfortable and well equipped.
The modern pool and spa area was lovey and the large grounds very well maintained.
There is a small shop on site, tennis court, games room, BBQ's areas, a short walk down through the bush leads to a very cute little beach.
We're looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Any room with an ocean view.
