Situated within very easy walking distance of the town centre and with a fabulous view over the nearby beach and Mercury bay, there are few motels in Whitianga that can beat the position of this one. On the minus side furnishings in our apartment were a touch dated, something clearly factored into what was a competitive nightly rate for accommodation that could sleep 3 people with ease, and something we were happy to accept. The USP here however is the wonderful, friendly service by lovely Thelma for whom nothing was too much trouble. Free use of towels and spades for our visit to Hot Water Beach, free use of the washing machine (complete with free powder) and airers, no shortage of advice as to where to go, eat etc. If you want luxurious furnishings, air conditioning and a daily chambermaid service you may wish to go elsewhere and pay 30% more, but you certainly won't find a friendlier welcome!…
I enjoyed a relaxing week in my Apt. directly across the road from the sandy beach. The Apt was spotlessly clean with everything you could need for a great stay. Hostess Thelma was very welcoming & nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Thelma & friend Marie for all your hard work.
Had a very happy stay here. Our host was sweet and made us feel welcome! We loved being right on the beach- nice spot. We chose this place because we were going to a concert at Coroglen Tavern and it's a short walk to the shuttle pick up spot from here- so would recommend Sandy Shores for that. Hope to come back one day!!
Thelma our host was the most amazing lady who went out of her way to make sure we were looked after. Even having towels and shovels to go to the hot water beach (no cost). the unit had every thing that anyone wants. Also the morning that we were leaving I had to go to the drs as I had hurt my knee and we had left our phone charger. We called her to see if it was there and she said 'I biked downed to the drs to catch you before you left - she 85). Not many host would do that. Thank Thelma for making our visit truly a happy one
Great spot looking right at the ocean. Nice large basic apartment with all the amenities needed and walking distance to the restaurants. Small block so not busy with other people. Host very helpful with lots of tips for tourists.
