It is handy to town and the small grocery store. Just across the beach so you can have lots of walking. Our room was good, it can be better but of course it's on the par on what you paid. She's a friendly host too, well versed with the touristy places.

Blue Marlin offers unobstructwd views across Mercury Bay whilst being within minutes of town bars and restaurants on foot. Units are modern, spacious, and beautifully decorated with quality furniture and decor items. Our bed afforded the most comfortable sleep I have ever had anywhere, including home .... True. Everything is squeaky clean and our hostess, Vivian, was extremely helpful in every regard. I would recommend Blue Marlin to only the most discerning of travellers.

Nice little unit for a couple. Very clean. Nice view with the beach right there. Parking space is tiny so dont take a boat like we did however the owner sorted our boat parking out straight away. Perfect getaway
