We were on a Northland "loop" tour, starting and finishing in Auckland over a 9 day period. We had 3 nights at Golden Sands and just did short day trips from there. It was easily the best place we stayed at on the whole trip. We had booked the beach Cabana, which we would have been perfectly happy with, however we were upgraded to "The Lodge", which is the owners main house (they were away on holiday themselves). The views from the huge deck area, the spa pool and the great outdoor bbq area were brilliant. I can highly recommend this place, although it sounds like getting an upgrade to The Lodge is rare and we were just lucky, as the owners normally live there on site. It wouldn't matter, it's still a brilliant spot.

Our studio apartment's view encompassed the full sweep of Cable Bay's golden sandy curve. The interior is cleverly spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Special inclusions like each unit's BBQ, convection oven and an individual welcome sign added to making this a really standout place to stay.

Absolutely beautiful settling right on the water's edge. A large very well equipped unit was all we could hope for. Unusually had no contact with the management, just a sign out on arrival to say which our apartment was.

We stayed in the deluxe bungalow. There is no better spot, right on the beach and the hosts have anticipated every need with a well equipped room of amenities. So clean and tastefully decorated. Our second stay and will be back again.
