Very spacious room, kitchen well equipped, laundry available but paid separately. wi-fi. possible to park a car in front of your entrance. Close to the ocean, a little far from the Mount Maunganui center. Supermarket nearby.

Simple and clean spacious accommodation, in a QUIET street 100 metres from the beach, and 2 min walk from a good Thai takeaway. I experienced no street noise( all units are on the same frontage, so would be the same for all). And I loved the big shower. 5 min from the airport, but tucked away from major traffic was a real plus for me. When I needed extra time on the last day Nigel was only too happy to accommodate. Very Happy!! I would recommend wholeheartedly, and intend to revist.

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay here at this clean, well run motel with very kind hosts. Its on a quiet street, just a short walk to beach, fish & chips place, convenience store and bottle shop. The suites are very large for the price and well outfitted. Wished we could have stayed longer. Very young family friendly. We had a car, but if not would be a longish walk to large grocery or central stores.

My husband and I spent 1 night in this small and friendly family-run motel during a road trip in February 2012. Our parking bay was right outside the room which was spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated,with a very well-equipped kitchen. The WIFI was easy to use and not time-limited as in some larger motels we stayed in. It was situated in a quiet location with only a short stroll to the beach. We would definitely stay in this motel again and would have no hesitation in recommending it. Many thanks to Nigel and Kanako for a lovely stay.

In Jan 2012 our family has spent 2 nights at Blue Wave Motel, which is clean and well-appointed. We are particularly impressed with the friendliness of the host couple and their personal touch. It is a very pleasant experience staying at the motel and we would like to also recommend it to our friends when they would make a holiday to Mt Maunganui in future :)
