Clean, quiet and spacious apartment with all the amenities. Outstanding views of the beach. Very welcoming host. Enjoyed the spa pool. We stayed for two days which really seemed short. Hope to stay longer next time. We had a wonderful time, highly recommend it.

We loved our stay at By the Bay, it was fantastic to be right on the beach, waking up to the beautiful view and enjoying going for walks on the sand. The apartment was spacious, well appointed and comfortable with everything we needed. Fiona was an excellent host, friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Right on the Beach. The 3 bedroom apartment has all facilities one needs. Infinity Spa pool was well used. Coopers Beach is handy to all excursions in the far North and handy to the Bay of Islands. Excellent value for money with a discount promotion. Will use it again if another promotion comes available in the future. Thanks Fiona for being a good host.

Room Tip: All apartments have a good view.

Four of us came to By the Bay for the weekend. It was a fair drive from Auckland but definitely worth it just for the oceanside spa pool! The apartment was charming and the service excellent and friendly. The markets nearby also helped to make it a great relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: We stayed in a three-bedroom apartment and it was very big - could easily have had 5 without it feeling a squeeze.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 3 bedroom apartment (Spurway) and this place was ideal, Fiona greeted us and was an great host, very friendly and helpful with a lot of local knowledge. The apartment had every conceivable thing you would need and more, it was like home from home. The beach is a stones throw away down the steps and the views from the 2 balconies out over the bay delightful. Would highly recommend these apartments, the only complaint I have is that we didn't book to stay longer, would love to go back in the summer.
Thank you Fiona for making our stay memorable.
