Changing Tides Studio Estuary Views

 Great location, very clean, nicely decorated and owners really pleasant. 


 Good location to beaches, shopping and tourist attractions, Glenda and Jack were very welcoming. 

Self-contained garden studio

 Friendly, lovely and very welcoming. The Bach was everything we needed, big, bright and clean and close to everything in Whitianga. The pictures don't do it justice 

Changing Tides Studio Estuary Views

 awesome accommodation! walked in and was blown away by how well decorated and clean the place was, very similar to a hotel room! One recommendation would be an electric fry-pan, we would definitely come for a longer stay in the future should there be one :) aside from that, would definitely recommend - great distance to shops and beach but not too close and lovely people to deal with! 


 The property was very clean and new, built near waterways which is handy if you have a boat or kayak, location is good near the town and easy to leave town for looking around, 

Self-contained garden studio

 Wonderful garden; clean, modern room; excellent bathroom facilities and located centrally in Whitianga: a brilliant place to stay.
