We really enjoyed our stay for 4 nights in a 3 bedroom apartment on the ocean side. Our huge windows in the lounge opened right up to take in the beach view right across the road. The apartment was well laid out, everything we needed was in place so we could cook for ourselves. Plenty of room, very comfortable beds, our own laundry and the secure parking was fantastic. We never really heard any one else in the complex either but I had the front ocean side bedroom, and found quite a bit of street noise during the night. Traffic, people walking by, bikes .... It got annoying though when children downstairs started playing outside and shouting right under our balcony. But to be fair, they had just arrived for Easter so expect they needed to let off steam. I never heard them again like that.

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach front are sought after but be aware that this is the main road pretty much to and...

We stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor overlooking the pool. I would definitely recommend the 2nd floor if you have young children. Our 15 month old could run around and we didn't need to worry about him escaping into the pool area. We were 4 adults and the one baby and it didn't feel cramped at all.
We had no problem with service, everyone was friendly. We had requested a cot which was in the room when we got there. We hadn't thought of a high chair until it was meal time. We called reception however they didn't have one but half an hour later we had a call back advising that they now had one available and would bring it up to us.
We had family come visit from other hotels in the area who were amazed by our apartment and said they would be staying here next time they were in Tauranga. And we will be too!
Our only regret was that it wasn't for longer!! This place is definitely a home away from home.

Enjoyed our stay. Ground floor apartments are best with children. Private location & beach was perfect for us. Clean and helpful hosts. Would definitely stay again.
Note: Not sure if hosts have changed but have now found reception very unhelpful. The person who has answered the reservation line could not tell me if there was a vacancy? Messages left to enquire about dates have been returned days later. Seems like they can't be bothered, which is a shame because we loved weekends away there.

We five adults stayed in a three bedroom, two bathroom, ground floor apartment for one night. The lounge and main bedroom were on the street side, with a peak of the sea. All rooms were spacious, and would easily be comfortable for a family for a few weeks. The kitchen was well-equipped, including tea, coffee, and sugar, but no milk was supplied, which is unusual in NZ accommodation. A very large balcony lead from the lounge and main bedroom towards the street, with out-door dining and a barbecue. We thought road noise could be an issue, but after about 10pm we didn't hear traffic. CuttersCove is far enough from the main shopping and dining area of Mt Maunganui to be quiet, but close enough to walk to. For a wider view of the ocean, ask for an apartment above ground level. There is underground, secure parking, and we had two parks with our apartment. Staff were efficient and helpful, and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: For a good sea view, ask for an apartment above ground level.

no privacy on decks and while having a quiet drink with my husband the apartment owner above thought it appropriate to lean over and and tell us what a lovely evening it was. Well, it was ok until then! Are not allowed to turn down the floor heating so room was very hot and stuffy. Cannot open windows at night as right next to road. Booked 2 nights but stayed one. Would not recommend.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment at Cutters Cove in Oct 2012 for one night. The first thing that struck us was how big the place was! Very spacious, with a large living / diing area (two living spaces - one lounge and one study 'nook'), and fully kitted-out kitchen. Very clean and well-organised in terms of layout. We were there with our 2 1/2 year old, and he loved having his own large room. The furniture in the apartment was a little mismatched and not overly contemporary, but it's a beachside apartment, so wasn't expecting Kartell! :)

So close to cafes, the beach (obviously!) and a short stroll to the Mount itself. The only real downside to this apartment block was the parking: might be tricky to get in and out of if you had a large SUV, and be prepared to do a couple of three point turns along the way! The two bedroom apartment came with two carparks though, which was great.
