Quality Family Holidays

 Good location and ideal for a family, would be good to have a table for both inside and out. 

Sybil's Place. Downtown Whitianga, LOCATION

 Always clean and tidy, nice new kitchen and carpet. Great outdoor space and plenty of garage space for all our dive gear. 

Great beach house, quiet location

 Everything we needed was there

Mayfair at Whitianga

 It was a perfect size for a large family group, plenty of room, close to beach and town. Very comfortable with everything we needed, couldn't have asked for a better place. 

Hop, skip and jump from town and beach

 Great location, it was so close to town. It suited our family holiday just perfectly. Thank you!

Mayfair at Whitianga

 Great place. We stayed here with friends from overseas, it had everything we needed and a lovely outside space. Walking distance to town. Would stay again! Great owners too, very prompt in meeting us for a key and to check property over.
