Easy to stay, very helpful couple, lovely breakfast on the balcony. There is a lot to do around the area - Karikari Peninsula, Mangonui, Cable Bay. Go driving or just chill out on the beach. Plenty of eating options nearby...

Thanks Linda and Tony for the great review! We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and you struck such fantastic weather which I think, makes a huge difference. The sunny weather also helps when you're having breakfast on the deck, even though it is covered, it's just not the same if it's raining! Thanks again. Regards Nikki & Gavin.

We stayed 2 nights and everything was perfect - room, cleanliness, breakfasts and hosts. Plenty to do in the area and we would recommend a visit to the very interesting Butlers Whale Museum close by at Hihi. Many thanks.

Thank you for such a wonderful review!It's great that you went to the Whaling Museum and enjoyed it, because many visitors to this area don't bother. It is a wonderful source of historical information on the Doubtless Bay area generally and Mangonui/Coopers Beach specifically. In my opinion, anybody interested in the early history of the Far North of NZ, should...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us and giving us such high praise. Yes, the deck is fantastic for breakfast due to our elevated location and it is especially nice on a beautiful, sunny, Far North morning. It's a great way to start your day. Regards Nikki & Gavin.

Doubtless Bay Lodge @ Coopers Beach is a lovely B&B. Quaint and clean with a beautiful view of the water. The beach is a short walk away. The owners are wonderful people who are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are delicious and the accommodations are great. Could not ask for anything more. Would recommend highly.

Hi guys. Thanks so much for the glowing report! We look forward to hopefully having many more wonderful reviews like this on TripAdvisor! We are disappointed though, that we have not been able to swing you to 'the dark side' and the delicious scrambled eggs. We will have to try harder!
