About
Description
The Oceanside is a boutique motel, offering a unique blend of superior beachfront accommodation, traditional hospitality and stunning sea views in Whitianga, the heart of the magical Coromandel More Peninsula. With 180 degree panoramic views over Buffalo Beach and Mercury Bay from all units you are only metres away from safe swimming and fantastic boating in the beautiful waters of Mercury Bay. Make the most of this opportunity to relax and unwind in one of New Zealand's most acclaimed scenic regions. The Oceanside is just a 10 minute stroll along the beach to Whitianga's renowned cafes and restaurants, the wharf and marina complex plus the Village shopping centre. With just a 2 minute drive we are one of the closest motels to the international acclaimed The Lost Spring Thermal Pools & Spa complex. Less

HI Natalie, Yes the rooms do have Air Con but as Kim said above - you can open the sliding doors out the front of your room and have the ocean breeze flow thru. Thanks Jill & Les
