We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We do believe our rates are very competitive especially as our waterfront location also enables our guests to "get out on the water" and explore the bay at their own pace in kayaks and dingy provided for no additional cost...such an idyllic spot...Colette looks forward to welcoming you back to Whatamonga Homestay.

Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback. Our spectacular view right on the waters edge with easy road acess is why we chose to build Whatamonga Homestay. Being able to explore the area from the water at your own pace is just one of the many special activities our B & B offers. Colette looks forward to welcoming you back to Whatamonga Homestay in the very near future.

We were warmly greeted by Colette on arrival and she did everything to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Our cabin was clean and cosy, no tv but not necessary with the amazing views and we were just sad we didn't have good weather so we could sit on our decking. The only criticism

Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback. We are thrilled you enjoyed your 5 days at Whatamonga and got to see and appreciate all that the area has to offer. Thanks for your feedback on WiFi. As we are in such an idyllic location, fibre optic internet connections are simply not available. Our guests do enjoy the calmness and serenity of our picturesque location and often comment how nice it is to take a break from the fast, paced, instant cyber world...We hope to welcome you back to Whatamonga some time soon...Kia Ora.
