We had two nights here. This really is beautiful spot overlooking the beach. The units were immaculate, beautifully furnished and homely, and Lyall (and Bryn the dog) were wonderful hosts. Quite aside from the accommodation the property is well set up, with an outdoor table, barbecue, heater and even a pizza oven! Loaded with wood and ready to go.,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and you got to enjoy the outdoor terrace for dinner. The Far North does allow al fresco dining a good length of time through the year. Bryn and I hope to see you up this way again. Regards, Lyall.

Great to see you here again and am very glad you enjoyed your stay. Just for clarity, I have Freeview TV, not Sky. I have found that the Freeview channels, DVD players in the room plus the Wifi tends to cover all needs. (bar live sports games) I hope I get to see you up this way again. Regards, Lyall.

All of these little cottages (a studio, a 1BR and a 2BR) are superb places to rest up and enjoy beach living. Walk across a small stream directly onto 90 mile beach, quite close to a the beach break known as "peaks."

Lyall was already waiting for us after our rainy and windy drive from Paihia and made sure we were comfortably settled in our room. As there are no real facilities in Ahipara we were advised to get supplies in Kaitaia so we make our own breakfast and dinner in the well equipped kitchen. The second evening we were able to...

Lyall and his canine companion Bryn are fabulous hosts. Beach Abode is right on Ninety Mile Beach and the sounds of the Tasman Sea lull you into a happy sleep. The units are very nice, the shared deck and barbecue area add to the friendly feeling. We will be back!
