Great location with the best possible ocean views. Lovely couple running the place. Modern clean, apartment with good facilities. We used it as a location to jump on the tour bus up to Cape Reinga and down 90 mile beach. Wish we got a chance to explore the area more but the beaches look amazing.

The villas are lovely, views terrific... it was almost a great holiday, sadly marred by the theft, on our first day, of a personal item from our villa. It can only have been taken by the person who cleaned our room, yet management seemed unable or unwilling to do anything about it. Given the cleaning staff cannot be trusted, we did not let them back into our villa. This theft left a very bad taste in the mouth; we won't return.

We questioned the staff member who cleaned that apartment, but she denied ever seeing the expensive watch which the guest claims was left beside the bed. Given current labour laws, that was as far as we were able to pursue the issue, although we did encourage the guests to report the matter to the police. The police did not pursue the matter. As it happens, that staff member left our employ about a month later. In our 18 months at the villas this is the only complaint we have ever had about staff.

Have just stayed here for two nights in a 3 bedroom villa. In fact we tried to stay on for another night but sadly they were full. We had a front row view of Cable Bay and surrounding Doubtless Bay. The views were insane. I have 3 teenage children so it was really nice to be able to find a 3 bedroom villa, usually my son ends up on a rollaway. Not this time, he had his own studio with tv, kitchenette and bathroom. Bliss! The hosts are lovely and offered tips for dining out and things to see on our drive to Cape Reinga. Amenities in the villa were brilliant, gosh 3 bathrooms plus a powder room on the living floor. Laundry and full kitchen. Designated carpark for each villa. Highly recommend!

We stayed at Doubtless Bay Villas for 8 weeks (while working in the area) in a variety of villas around the complex - all had amazing outlooks. The wonderful managers, Sue & John were a pleasure to deal with and gave us exceptional service throughout our stay. All the other staff members were also friendly and helpful. The villas are large, beds very comfortable and clean with nice linen, the kitchen and laundry facilities well equipped and bathrooms spacious. The location of Doubtless Bay Villas is excellent and just a short walk to the closest beach, with outstanding views looking out over the golden sands of the bay and water - so you can hear the ocean, a fabulous place to relax and unwind! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for great value and superb accommodation while exploring Northland.
