The room was exactly as described and the view was unbeatable. We were in a luxury studio room which still felt just as private as a villa and was not too small. The kitchenette had everything we needed for a short stay and the robes and cookies on arrival were a bonus; I would love to go back.

We arrived after a long day of driving from Auckland. Check in was easy and I thought our villa was nicer than the photos. We had two levels with the bedroom on the upper level and a large living area, kitchen on the lower level. The view was beautiful. Our villa was quiet, comfortable beds, good wifi, and nice amenities....

We had two nights here in a studio unit. More than adequate space. Modern amenities, clan and tidy with magnificent view out to Doubtless bay. The only draw back was the flights of stairs to access our unit. Not easy getting luggage into the room. There are probably units where access is not so difficult. We would definitely choose to...

Fantastic views from the appartment we stayed in, although they do have others that don't, but great accommodation. The appartments are well maintained and clean. Beds are large and super comfy. Free tennis for the energetic. The only down side is that there is a steep uphill trek up from the beach so you would need to use a car...

We spent 3 days in a one bedroom villa, a maisonette arrangement with the bedroom one floor up from the living room. The accommodation is of a very high standard with a fully equipped kitchen as well as washing machine and dryer. The large balcony was fully taken up by a table and bench, more comfortable seating would have been...

A gorgeous modern villa with expansive views of the bay. Wall of windows let in light and fully equipped kitchen. Also able to watch the Super Bowl February 2017 and as Patriots fan that was not expected to have a room with ability to watch the game! The location is great for touring the tip of the North Island as...

We stayed in a studio for 2 nights.17/19th. The views are amazing. But we were a little disapointed with our room,which was quite small,with a very small "kitchen"area. A kettle,microwave and toaster are provided,as is cutlery etc. No bread knife .? The room was quite clean..but not spotless.! Finally for 5 star accomodation we would expect air conditioning.

Two-bed well-designed apartment with an amazing outlook. Spent much of my time relaxing with the view and photographing changes in tide and sky. Very comfortable. No quality food outlets/cafes/restaurants nearby with Mangonui the nearest place to dine.

We stayed here for five nights early in December, using the studio as a base to explore Northland, after four nights near Russell. Our stay in Cable Bay was very peaceful as we were a few weeks before the Christmas break, and we were very impressed with the studio. Although quite small, it provided us with everything we required, and...

The properties are large luxury well-designed apartments with great views, well appointed and very comfortable. They are run by a very helpful husband and wife couple who went out of their way to help when one of us left her phone behind. It's a short walk downhill to the beach but a somewhat harder one back up the hill. The...
