“Luxury and Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2011

Fall asleep with the gentle sounds of the sea and awaken to beautiful views of the bay and beach from every window and the balcony. Be walking, swimming or sitting on the beach in moments. Perhaps the best beachcombing and shell collecting anywhere. Gorgeous, quiet, and private. The suite is well decorated, furnished, and stocked. Friendly hosts Janet and George are a wealth of information. We booked four nights and decided to stay five and wished we had stayed longer. This is a wonderful place to stay but additionally makes a perfect location for visiting all the Northland treasures conveniently.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2011

For a four day break in August we booked three nights at Janet and George's beachfront suites, based on reviews written on TripAdvisor. We did quite an extensive search before booking and the ratings clearly favoured this accommodation - and for a reason!

This accommodation is absolutely perfect in every way. There's a ground floor unit and a second on top of that. Although the ground floor unit was vacant, Janet and George prepared the upper suite for us so that we could enjoy the view. It has an open plan kitchen and living room, separate bedroom with king-size bed and bathroom that is accessible from both the bedroom and living hallway. It is equipped with everything you need and much more. For example: forgot your reading glasses? No problem, as there's one provided in the suite. As advertised, it is not an actual bed and breakfast accommodation, but you're provided with some bread, spreads, milk, coffee etc. to prepare your own private meal in the morning.

Janet and George kindly offered to make some phone calls to see whether local touristic attractions would be open at this time of the year, and also gave us some good advise on other places of interest, like Cape Reinga (2hr drive), the sand dunes at Paihia etc. Cooper's beach itself is also worth a walk if you don't mind climbing some tree branches every now and then. The beach and the neighbouring peninsula look like great places to swim in the summer. Mangonui should also be a cosy place to go for a drink and bite to eat, but unfortunately quite some of the restaurants are closed several days of the week during winter time, or renovating in preparation of the high season.

Admittedly, the nightly rate was slightly above our budget, but we were offered a sweet winter deal to get the third night for free. It's absolutely great value for your money though, even if you have to pay the full sum.

Big kudos to Janet for giving us a ring about five minutes after we left! My partner forgot to take her jacket, but since we were only a few kilometres out, we quickly made a U-turn to come pick it up. We definitely recommend this to anything looking for an awesome place to explore the northern region of New Zealand.

Room Tip: The upper suite offers a great view on the beach.

We spent three nights at Coopers Beachfront Suites and we enjoyed the luxurious suite and lovely beach view. The suite was fully equipped and even included a pair of reading glasses! Our hosts, Janet and George, were very knowledgable about the area.
We enjoyed staying so close to the beach and found the swimming to be the best we experienced in New Zealand.

Janet and George are the perfect hosts, providing every service and amenity while respecting your privacy in this beautiful beachfront location. While the setting is secluded, there is easy access to restaurants and services both in Coopers Beach and in nearby Mangonui. Janet and George will advise and help you with arranging activities and tours. Although this is not a B&B, our frig was well stocked so that we could breakfast at leisure on our deck -even better for our schedules! Just can't find anything negative to say!

Loved our stay here even if only for a single night. Stayed in Garden (downstairs suite). Very nicely laid out with great view of lawn and beach just meters away. Suite is very well equipped, comfortable and clean. Our host were warm and accommodating. We could not have asked for more

Going to the Far North? Look no further than this for perfect accomodation. Everything you could ever need is provided. Spotless accomodation, charming and discrete owners, direct beach access and ocean views. Very peaceful. I can't wait to return.
