We stayed here for five nights early in December, using the studio as a base to explore Northland, after four nights near Russell. Our stay in Cable Bay was very peaceful as we were a few weeks before the Christmas break, and we were very impressed with the studio. Although quite small, it provided us with everything we required, and the views from the room were stunning. The studio was well laid out and in very good order. The very wide ranch slider windows were a bonus leading out onto the patio area with unobstructed views of Doubtless Bay and the Karikari peninsular.

We made trips to Cape Reinga, Ninety Mile Beach, and Maitai Bay and loved the township of Mangonui, just about 6 kilometers away, where excellent fish and chips awaited!

The hosts, David and Margaret were very helpful, particularly when advising us where to visit when almost the whole of Northland had lost electricity owing to the acts of vandals.

Altogether a very enjoyable stay.

The properties are large luxury well-designed apartments with great views, well appointed and very comfortable. They are run by a very helpful husband and wife couple who went out of their way to help when one of us left her phone behind.

It's a short walk downhill to the beach but a somewhat harder one back up the hill. The nearest shops are a short drive away in Coopers Beach.

The one thing that could really make the Villas top-notch would be a swimming pool.

We had two fantastic das days in the studio Appartement! It were our first two nights in New Zealand and there is no better place to have a relaxing start into your holiday

The view is fabulous and the room clean and nice! The shower is great and all bath supplies make the stay even more comfortable! The owners are really nice and welcomed us in the nicest and warmest way possible! Don't forget to bring sport shoes because the tennis court allows you a march with a breath taking view!

It's not cheap but worth every penny!!!!

Booked here for 1 night, stayed 2 nights in a 2 bed apartment, great view, very helpful management team. Bit cold though at night as open plan and no central heating, just an electric heater, didnt effect our enjoyment though of the truly great view - open sea, listening to the waves crashing, very peaceful, although our neighbours in the studio below were noisy in the morning and took all the hot water !!

Room Tip: All good. 2 beds are 2 levels, hence bigger.

After spotting the villas as we were driving along the coast, we managed to negotiate a good price with David. The villa was very well equipped, super comfortable bed and a view to die for. We decided to cook supper and from the kitchen it looks as though you are at sea on a boat. We loved it so much we extended our stay. On the 2nd night there was a noisy group in the studio below, who appear to have used all the hot water before I had a shower the following morning, a slight niggle, but it would not stop me from returning. Highly recommended, Margaret was very friendly and helpful. Ask for villa 22 for the most amazing view.
