Lovely apartment split over 3 levels. First level was the garage, laundry, and a separate toilet and shower. Second level was the lounge, kitchen, dining and balcony. Third level was the master bedroom, toilet and bathroom. Two other rooms were closed off. Beautifully equipped with a full range of kitchen appliances and little touches like paper towels and a salt and pepper set. Clean and comfortable; we would certainly stay again.
So I was not so keen to write a great review because I will definitely be going back and wanted to be sure the place is not fully booked when I do :) The location was great, the service was great and I adore Whangamata. Thank you for a lovely stay.
We had a long standing booking (of twelve months) that was cancelled on us ten days prior to our arrival. The Manager phoned to inform us that the owner of the unit (as all the units are individually owned), required the unit we had booked so they were cancelling our booking. As the period we were staying was a busy long weekend, he could not offer us any alternative as they were fully booked. There was no offer to assist us to find alternative accommodation, no compensation offer, just "I'm sorry there's nothing I can do". So be aware when booking at this establishment that your booking may not be guaranteed. You will have to decide if you are willing to take the chance your holiday plans might be disrupted significantly at the last minute.
The 2-bedroom apartment was clean and comfortable. We had to open the windows to cool down, the private garage parking is nice, we are able to do laundry in the garage. We walked across the street for breakfast and the beach. Quiet.
Awesome place. Top location. We loved being able to walk a few steps and be right at the surf club. Exceptionally clean. Comfy beds. White fluffy towels. Good set up in 3 bedroom units. Double Garage (lengthwise) on ground floor with shower toilet and laundry. First floor 3 bedrooms and another bathroom. 3rd bedroom opens onto 2nd bedroom for natural light but also has its own door from hallway. Top 3rd floor - living, dining, kitchen and lovely deck. We’ll set up with outdoor shower to clean off after the beach. We just had the most lovely stay. Friendly hosts doing a great job of running a clean and quiet apartment block. Tip: eat at the rsa- cheap and delicious Thai and European food.
