The villas have the most amazing view, the rooms are generous, we had a 2 bedroom villa, each bedroom has it's own bathroom. Really loved it, will recommend it to couples, families, friends travelling together.

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago and it was wonderful, really relaxing, quiet spot with views to die for! Very well appointed clean rooms with comfortable beds and all the amenities, good wifi connection and lots of nice little touches. We even got time to have a quick knock about on the tennis court. Hosts were very pleasant and...

We spent three nights in a studio unit on a winter package deal. The unit was clean but bijou. Although it boasts a five star rating, it lacks the comfort one could expect. The view was terrific, but there was only room for one easy chair to admire it from. The miniscule dining table was so rickety that one could...

Sorry that you didn't have the stay you were expecting. We generally only supply milk for the first day as we like to provide fresh milk and not the UHT type. We would always provide more if asked. The toiletries should have been replenished and we apologise that they were missed. We have taken your other comments on board and...

We stayed in a studio apartment over a long weekend. Being the front unit we had spectacular uninterrupted views across Cable Bay. The unit was equipped with a microwave and basic crockery and cutlery. Enough to make coffee and toast and porridge for breakfast. Plunger and ground coffee supplied for plunger coffee too was a nice touch. Very quiet -...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in one of their modern, two bed roomed apartments. Large rooms with stunning views over the beach, which is only 2 minutes walk away. A quiet, relaxing stay and good location from which to explore northern areas of Northland. We highly recommend it.

The villas and the views from Doubtless Bay villas are stunning. The villas are very modern and roomy and take advantage of the most amazing views. You get many of those views in New Zealand but rarely from your bedroom and even more rarely at such good value. We stayed in the two bedroom apartments and really enjoyed our stay....

Beautiful apartments with stunning views over the beach. Well finished with large airy rooms. The two bed roomed apartments are gorgeous with master room upstairs having its own balcony overlooking the sea & the huge second room having a good sized bathroom too. Fully fitted kitchen and laundry with downstairs toilet. The only downside is that smoking is allowed on...

We had four nights in a villa. Spotlessly clean, beautiful furnishings and bedding. Nothing is too much trouble for David and Margaret, even when fire alarm goes off at midnight and we had to evacuate!!! Some appliances are tricky to use. Stunning views. A pool and spa would be a nice addition. Best value for money in Doubtless Bay

Fabulous views from this great base for touring. Good local walks, sandy beach close by and a lovely welcome from the hosts. Villas are well-equipped, there's a nice tennis court and it's a quiet and tranquil spot.
