We had a very comfortable stay the location was amazing. The host was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely stay again. It’s the perfect place to stop for a night or two when driving the Coromandel Peninsula.

About
Description
The Oceanside is a boutique motel, offering a unique blend of superior beachfront accommodation, traditional hospitality and stunning sea views in Whitianga, the heart of the magical Coromandel More Peninsula. With 180 degree panoramic views over Buffalo Beach and Mercury Bay from all units you are only metres away from safe swimming and fantastic boating in the beautiful waters of Mercury Bay. Make the most of this opportunity to relax and unwind in one of New Zealand's most acclaimed scenic regions. The Oceanside is just a 10 minute stroll along the beach to Whitianga's renowned cafes and restaurants, the wharf and marina complex plus the Village shopping centre. With just a 2 minute drive we are one of the closest motels to the international acclaimed The Lost Spring Thermal Pools & Spa complex. Less
