There are not enough superlatives to describe Peninsula Waterfront Retreat!

We booked this gorgeous place for just 3 days together with family from Australia and travelled there from Rotarua. It was everything we hoped it would be, and more besides! We had the suite upstairs and our Son and family were in the 2 bedroom apartment downstairs.

Our suite was fabulous with a large extremely comfortable bed, a great en-suite, two balconies with lovely views and a comfy sofa. Downstairs the family apartment was also luxurious and very spacious with French doors opening out onto an extensive lawn which led right down to the water’s edge. The kitchen area was well equipped and there was also an excellent barbecue for our use. Breakfast supplies were provided and topped up when necessary. We were all more than comfortable, so much so, that unusually we decided not go out to eat for two of the nights but instead had a barbecue and also a take-away from nearby Whangamata.

The internal configuration was perfect for us as a family but would also be equally good for individual bookings as neither infringe on the privacy of the other. They share the same very large entrance hall (the owners use a different entrance) but from there on are completely separate.

Externally no plush hotel could better the facilities at Peninsula and our teenage grandsons revelled in the mountain bikes, the kayaks, the tennis courts, the pool etc etc. The grounds of Peninsula are gorgeous with beautiful views at every turn; Chris and Trish are wonderful hosts, helpful and friendly without being intrusive, in fact the place is just perfect. Don’t think about it just book and try to allocate more than the three days we had!
