Fantastic views from the appartment we stayed in, although they do have others that don't, but great accommodation. The appartments are well maintained and clean. Beds are large and super comfy. Free tennis for the energetic. The only down side is that there is a steep uphill trek up from the beach so you would need to use a car if you are older or have small children. Great location for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Appartment with sea views

We spent 3 days in a one bedroom villa, a maisonette arrangement with the bedroom one floor up from the living room. The accommodation is of a very high standard with a fully equipped kitchen as well as washing machine and dryer. The large balcony was fully taken up by a table and bench, more comfortable seating would have been welcome in order to enjoy the good weather. Parking was directly in front of the door, the whole complex made a very good impression. The apartment was serviced daily.

Stayed: February 2017

A gorgeous modern villa with expansive views of the bay. Wall of windows let in light and fully equipped kitchen. Also able to watch the Super Bowl February 2017 and as Patriots fan that was not expected to have a room with ability to watch the game! The location is great for touring the tip of the North Island as we drove to Cape Reinga and back on one of the days and swam in the beach below our villa.

We stayed in a studio for 2 nights.17/19th.
The views are amazing. But we were a little disapointed with our room,which was quite small,with a very small "kitchen"area.
A kettle,microwave and toaster are provided,as is cutlery etc. No bread knife .?
The room was quite clean..but not spotless.! Finally for 5 star accomodation we would expect air conditioning.

Two-bed well-designed apartment with an amazing outlook. Spent much of my time relaxing with the view and photographing changes in tide and sky. Very comfortable. No quality food outlets/cafes/restaurants nearby with Mangonui the nearest place to dine.

Room Tip: Seek waterfront unit

We arrived after a long day of driving from Auckland. Check in was easy and I thought our villa was nicer than the photos. We had two levels with the bedroom on the upper level and a large living area, kitchen on the lower level. The view was beautiful. Our villa was quiet, comfortable beds, good wifi, and nice amenities. Loved having a washer and dryer. Wish we had stayed longer just so we could have soaked up the view more.

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.
