Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Te mahia Bay resort for just the one night and it was fantastic. We stayed in one of the motel units which was absolutely HUGE and had a double bed, 2 singles, 2 sofas, an en-suite bathroom, a TV and a kitchen (hob not oven). The kitchen is a definate bonus as there is no restaurant on-site, although it is possible to order a pizza from them or a frozen gourmet meal. On top of this, the view from our room was fantastic looking directly and unobstructed out into the bay.
Even though there is a road nearby you never hear any cars and the area is just stunningly peaceful.
We arrived by foot along the Queen Charlotte Track and once you leave the track it is only around 20minutes along the road to get to the resort.
If you have time and a bit of energy you can walk the steep, but not overly difficult walk upto the Onahua Lookout point which gives you a 360 view of the surrouding sounds which is great for photos.
Another highlight of the place is how nice the owners are. We had heard a lot about them before we arrived and only got to meet Jann but she was lovely and well up for a chat.
