Reviewed March 2, 2007

Our party of five adults spent four days at Belle Mer at the beginning of February, then two of us spent an additional 12 days there at the end of February. Our first unit was a ground floor three bedroom /two bath unit (plus a great patio and barbeque); the second was two bedrooms and two baths (with a great 50 foot long patio that overlooked the ocean). Both units were spacious (approx. 1000 sq. ft.) modern , well furnished, and spotlessly clean. As is typical in NZ, both units had a kitchen with utensils and small appliances. There was also a dishwasher, which is not so typical. The large bathroom had a spa tub as well as a shower. There are washers and dryers in the units that do not require coins to use. There is also underground parking and a pool.

The location is superb--right across from the magnificent beach and only a few blocks from the downtown stores and the Mount itself (with its marvelous walking path). We could sit on the deck and watch the sun rise, the surfers, and the ocean. We could walk to the shops and restaurants. It was wonderful. (I should probably note that Mt. Maunganui is is the vacation "suburb" of Tauranga.)

Hosts David and Diana are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, as is the cleaning staff.

Although this is billed as a "luxury" unit, the cost was very reasonable and below that of many like accommodations on Marine Parade (the street that runs along the beach). We will definitely stay here again. (To put this review in perspective, this was our sixth trip to NZ and our fifth trip to Mount Maunganui.)
