Great check-in experience

Enjoy the private, tranquil setting of this fully appointed apartment here on the celebrated Whitianga Waterways. Easy walking distance to Whitianga shops, trendy eateries, and the magical white sands of Buffalo Beach. Also visit iconic Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach. Your hostess, Dorothy sailed the world with husband Derek. I am now comfortably settled in our shore-side residence. Come and be at home here. As the canal-front is unfenced, I am sorry, we cannot accept children.

A great apartment with everything you could need, lots of thoughtful touches like recommendations on where to eat (Squids was amazing!) Dorothy gave us a warm welcome and was available for anything we might need during our stay. We had a fantastic time in Whitianga!

This is a wonderful apartment in a lovely location. Everything was easy and thoughtfully equipped. We enjoyed Whitianga, and managed to include Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach in one day. Dorothy was welcoming and easy to communicate with.

Lovely space, friendly hostess and a great location just very short drive into the centre of Whitianga or a 20min walk (perfect for an after dinner stroll). Thankyou Dorothy, we would very happily stay again.
