Amazing sea view from the second floor, beautiful sunrises, such a relaxing atmosphere. Room clean tidy and spacious. Met by friendly owner when we checked in. Gave an excellent rundown of everything to do with the rooms and where the eateries in the town are. Definitely stay again

I arrived Whitianga without booking any accomadtion and after driving around the area for a moment decided to stop in here and find out if they had any rooms avaliable. I was greeted by a friendly gentleman at reception and given an upstairs apartment for the evening. The room was very clean and the view was awesome. Waterfront Apartments will definately be my place to stay for business trips for sure, thank you for the hassle free and lovely place to stay and see you next month

Great place to stay, had everything we needed. Apartment did lack pantry storage though. The pool at the complex closed at 7pm which is way too early. Great location, across the road from the beach. Whitianga is a fantastic destination with so much to do in the area.

We loved our stay.! The apartment was exceptionally clean, very large and comfortable. The views were spectacular and the photos don’t do it justice. Excellent location and only a short walk to town and to restaurants. The hosts were very friendly. They even gave us some Christmas gifts and snacks as we arrived on Christmas day. Excellent stay. We hope to stay again!

Nice clean and quiet rooms , comfortable and large bed. Apartment had everything we needed. Location right across from the beach was the main point we loved . Most things are just a walk away , only thing I wish I’d taken was an eye mask as the blinds don’t black out . Will stay again !

Great views, awesome room and amenities and close to CBD. Hosts were friendly and helpful. The room has a great feature with a porch that has windows that can be opened for greasy beach air. And the beach is directly across the road with no obstructions to the view, which also takes in the Harbour entrance!
