Perfect location and friendly hosts. We only stayed a short while, but this place is wonderful. Saying "just like home" is a cliche, but the attention to detail shown by Janet & George is second-to-none and makes this place as comfortable as can be from the moment you arrive. We've stayed at some famous and remarkable hotels around the world, but combine this location, view, hosts and amenities and you have somewhere truly world-class.

Beautiful setting for a weekend away. Picturesque beach views from the hill top near by. Recommend a sunset picnic from up at the pa. Luxury where it counts most and lovely hosts.

We stayed shere for 3 nights and wished we had booked to stay longer. We are in NZ for a month and this was the most relaxing spot yet. Perfect deck looked out across to the each and a perfect setting for a glass of wine each day at golden hour. 5 km walks on beach (back and forth) were a daily highlight. Lots to do nearby with great shops and restaurants either a short walk or a short drive away. The apartment is all you could ask for - has no cooktop or oven - but the microwave and the deep frypan do the job (we used frypan to boil new potatoes and it worked fine!) hosts were wonderful, attentive and respectful. Couldn't ask for better.

Room Tip: Oceanfront suite has a deck and is only steps to the beach

I was immediately taken by the charming tree-framed view towards the beach whose rolling waves lulled us to sleep. Very friendly welcome and it seemed our every possible need had been provided for from a welcoming fruit basket to beachchairs. We spent a wonderful evening sitting on the beach with a bottle of wine and takeout food and couldn't have been happier!!!

Superb 5 days at Coopers Beachfront Suites. Perfect location with a stunning beach on the doorstep. 5km run each morning along pohutukawa-fringed beach followed by a relaxing swim in the sea. Interesting Maori pa sites immediately adjacent, and just a couple of minutes' drive to beautiful and historic Mangonui fishing village. Great location for cycling, walking and exploring the Far North. Janet and George were welcoming and knowledgable hosts, and their delightful 'westie' dog and burmese cats were an added bonus.

We had a wonderful stay at Coopers Beachfront Suites. George and Janet were terrific. Even with a bit of rain, there is tons to do outside: the beaches (of course), nature walks, photography, climbing over rocks and more. We wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, George and Janet, for sharing your wonderful place with us. We had a magnificent time.

We stayed two nights here while touring northland, I swam in the sea, it was great, the beach is lovely. George and Janet were extremely hospitable hosts, and provided more in the way of breakfast items than we expected, OJ, bread, jams, milk & basket of fruit, thank you! Plus toiletries in the bathroom.
There is a vacant section between the property and beach but your own walkway down steps to a creek which runs into the sea, great photo opportunities with the huge flowering pohutukawas lining the beach frontage. For elderly or disabled persons, these steps are unsuitable but there is another paved beach access one house away.
I took my deckchair out onto the vacant section with my camera and Janet kindly surprised me with a glass of wine to complement the setting.
Suggestions were offered on eateries in the area which was appreciated.
The reason I have rated VG rather than excellent is due to the word 'luxury' on the web page, therefore my expectations were a little higher. The building is showing signs of age now but is immaculately clean and well presented. We were in the lower suite and you can hear the guests above walking (someone was up at 3am), but I am a very light sleeper.
Also, I chose this property partly because it reads on web page "not suitable for children". When we stayed there was a family of four above us, but the young children were well-behaved so no problem.
I left my bikini draped on the fan when we left and Janet phoned me (but we were out of coverage) and then kindly posted it to me. Thanks again.

Room Tip: Choose the upstairs suite for a better view, if you are able to do a flight of stairs ok.
