"If these rooms were any closer to the water you'd need a snorkel. Wonderful Kiwiana motel with plenty of room and a nice generous kitchen and good bed. We were happily pleased."

"This place is awesome and takes me back to the 60's and 70's when we used to holiday in the Coromandel with my parents - awesome location and loved the 60's vibe - we will be back."

"Beautiful views. The hosts are very accommodating & friendly. The room has everything you need to be self sufficient. ..... and the location is simply gorgeous at sunset and sunrise."

"Such a relaxing environment, with beautiful sea view. Great bush walk to a near by Kauri foot path. Hospitality by Katherine and John second to none."

"1960's unit in a beautiful seaside location that is very handy to cafes and tourist activities. The hosts are terrific - full of helpful tips for exploring the area and they are super friendly."

"Waves soothing you to sleep, sunsets over the ocean from your deck, spacious, clean, comfortable accommodation, knowledgeable and friendly hosts who make you laugh - this motel is a treasure from a more relaxed age. Highly recommended."

"Loved the retro vibe of this charming motel. Waterfront location is unbeatable. Would highly recommend for anyone with fond memories of sixties motels or just looking for something a little different."


"Perfect location - Mussels off the beach for dinner, family friendly, animal friendly - brilliant hosts."

"Incredible views and very comfy, with everything you need to cook at home. I strongly recommend it!"

"Just like a good ole kiwi bach from yester-year, the smell of sea air, sea gulls chirping and the ocean lapping at your door. Happy dayz."


"Right by the sea - wonderful. Nice, clean no fuss accommodation. Simple - just what we wanted with everything we needed. Great host, very friendly and knowledgeable of local area and fishing tips. Thank you we will be back

"Awesome,welcoming hosts...unit has everything you need, clean,tidy,very comfortable bed. We had a home made breakfast..a breakfast wrap which was delicious from the extensive menu...the view, the sound of the sea right's paradise.."

"What a great place to relax and unwind. Sitting on the deck is only a few meters from the waters edge or while lying in bed you can hear the little waves on the beach, very relaxing. Also for us with 2 mini schnauzers this motel is pet friendly. Highly recommended."
