“Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2011

On arriving at the Waterfront Apartments, we found it was fully booked apart from a 2 bedroom house they also owned. Amazingly, we were offered 3 nights at $160 NZ dollars per night. It was amazing - fully equipped. clean, quiet and spacious, with a garden and communal pool. The staff were so polite and friendly, really pleasant and professional (Please take note Tuscany Villas in Rotorua). It was excellent value for money, and a good base for exploring the Coromandel peninsula.

Room Tip: Good location/great staff

All I can say is "Wow" or "What a view!" or "What a great balcony!" The Waterfront Apartments are not what I would call elegant but they are very comfortable and clean and feel very homey.Everything you need for a long or short stay is right there.The apartments are situated just a few steps from town and they are right on the beach. The building is faced away from Whitianga , looking out into the amazing island studded Mercury Bay with an unobstructed view. A well stock convenience store is right around the corner and several restaurants and amazing bakeries are just a stroll away. Most of downtown Whitianga and the harbor facilities are an easy and picturesque walk way.But when it's all said and done, the Waterfront's amazing view of Mercury Bay is a show stopper. It's teak and rattan furnished,all-seasons balcony just begs you to sip New Zealand wine and lazily watch the fishing boats come and go.
It's comfortable and convenient,the service is friendly and first rate,the view is marvelous. If you see Bill tell him I'm coming back!

  • Liked — View and the quiet
  • Disliked — you have to check in down the street at a different motel and then drive over to the Apartment
