We had a first floor, beach side room and could not have been happier with the accommodations. The room was clean,with nicely equipped kitchen. It opened onto a private patio with a lawn/garden with loungers, barbecue, trampoline, kayaks- all right on a beautiful beach. We saw the most beautiful sunrises. Easy drive or nice walk into town. Very nice host....

Stayed 3 nights here. The rooms are really good and well functioning. The location right on the beach and with only 30 min easy walk to the small town is perfect.

Super location with only 6 units that face the beach. All that is between you and the beach is the garden. Good range of beach stuff and we used the kyacks and life jackets. Very nicely stocked, complete with cafetier and coffee sachets to go with it. Beautiful kitchen with everything that you need. This is a really thoughtfully provided...

Street front, you might not be impressed but continue on in for a compact, comfortable and welcoming beachfront oasis. Everything you need except the food and wine. My kids loved the location and the included access to kayaks, cricket sets and shovels (for Hot Water Beach). I highly recommend Beachfront Resort, Whitianga.
