Loved the Manaia apartment and the views to Mt Manaia. It got great morning and afternoon sun. Clean, comfortable and modern. And so quiet. We didnt hear any noise at night (except for the moreporks when we sat out on the balcony). Lil was very helpful with things to do. We paddled, swam, walked. Loved being able to just cross the road and swim. Will definitely return to this piece of paradise in a great location.

I stayed for 2 nights in the smaller Koru apartment while helping out at a school camp nearby. The apartment was the perfect place to come back to after a busy noisy day! It was beautifully decorated and very cosy with everything you could need. I had my young son with me and he loved the bunk beds and the games. The owner was really lovely as well and gave me a tour of the other apartment. I would be very keen to return with the rest of my family to stay and enjoy the accommodation and all the local attractions. Thank you :)

My daughter and I loved our 4 night stay in the Manaia apartment - the photos on Lil’s website don’t do it justice. It was very private, self contained, incredibly well equipped, much bigger than it looks on the photos and to sit on the balcony on a warm summer evening was heavenly.

2 nite stay, should have been longer - the shores is that good! Mesmerizing View out the slider and lanai of Mt. Manaia. Really close to Bream Head tramps. Lil is fabulous and the unit was so well equipped with anything & everything you could need. Much Mahalo to the Shores!

I was only "winging it" on a solo retreat & Lil luckily had the Koru apartment vacant that night at short notice. It was exactly what I needed & Lil was so accommodating, helpful & friendly. The apartment has everything you could possibly need or want & it is all spotlessly clean & comfortable. The surrounding area certainly is filled with a plethora of beautiful fun things do in nature. It is also very peaceful, which is what I needed. Thank you again.
