“Perfect beachfront location”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Superb 5 days at Coopers Beachfront Suites. Perfect location with a stunning beach on the doorstep. 5km run each morning along pohutukawa-fringed beach followed by a relaxing swim in the sea. Interesting Maori pa sites immediately adjacent, and just a couple of minutes' drive to beautiful and historic Mangonui fishing village. Great location for cycling, walking and exploring the Far North. Janet and George were welcoming and knowledgable hosts, and their delightful 'westie' dog and burmese cats were an added bonus.

We had a wonderful stay at Coopers Beachfront Suites. George and Janet were terrific. Even with a bit of rain, there is tons to do outside: the beaches (of course), nature walks, photography, climbing over rocks and more. We wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, George and Janet, for sharing your wonderful place with us. We had a magnificent time.

We stayed two nights here while touring northland, I swam in the sea, it was great, the beach is lovely. George and Janet were extremely hospitable hosts, and provided more in the way of breakfast items than we expected, OJ, bread, jams, milk & basket of fruit, thank you! Plus toiletries in the bathroom.
There is a vacant section between the property and beach but your own walkway down steps to a creek which runs into the sea, great photo opportunities with the huge flowering pohutukawas lining the beach frontage. For elderly or disabled persons, these steps are unsuitable but there is another paved beach access one house away.
I took my deckchair out onto the vacant section with my camera and Janet kindly surprised me with a glass of wine to complement the setting.
Suggestions were offered on eateries in the area which was appreciated.
The reason I have rated VG rather than excellent is due to the word 'luxury' on the web page, therefore my expectations were a little higher. The building is showing signs of age now but is immaculately clean and well presented. We were in the lower suite and you can hear the guests above walking (someone was up at 3am), but I am a very light sleeper.
Also, I chose this property partly because it reads on web page "not suitable for children". When we stayed there was a family of four above us, but the young children were well-behaved so no problem.
I left my bikini draped on the fan when we left and Janet phoned me (but we were out of coverage) and then kindly posted it to me. Thanks again.

Room Tip: Choose the upstairs suite for a better view, if you are able to do a flight of stairs ok.

Our second stay at Coopers Beachfront Suites, and we are reluctant to leave. The apt is equipped with every amenity possible. Sunny rooms with a view to pahutakawas and the beach- so close we can hear the waves all day & night. Hosts George & Janet are lovely, & proud to share their bit of heaven. Thank you for pure peace & relaxation!

We have just returned home to the UK having stayed at 28 different places in our 2 months exploration of New Zealand and I am pleased to report that Janet & George's Beachfront Suite is top of our list. It was so good we extended our stay to 5 nights. We were in the upstairs suite which had great views and was furnished to a very high standard. A superb location to relax in luxury with direct access to the beach and to explore the Far North. Our hosts were unobtrusive yet available to help and assist on request.
