  • Unit under house was very good

    Unit under house was very good. Very well stocked. Comfortable and a great view by the water. Short 10 minute drive to CBD. Easy access to Whangarei Heads also. Ideal location for our break as we were able to use it as a base to drive to the Bay of Islands.

    We stayed 2 nights and it was great! Couldnt have picked a better spot. They were very accomodating. We didnt arrive until 3:40am and they left the outside light on and keys out for us. They even turned the heater on for us. The room was ammuculate and was great. Its these little things that made our stay great. Would stay here again! Thank you!

    This was our second stay and won't be our last! It is a lovely site, windows looking directly out to the water. The studio unit had everything - freshly ground coffee (and chocolate!), robes, heaps of towels, quality hotel provisions with a book-a-bach price. A very relaxed and enjoyable winter weekend. Thank you.
