Loved it all. Lovely resort, well maintained & great hosts. Pool was lovely as was the spacious accommodation and just a heavenly spot to throw a snapper on the BBQ in the setting sun. Great location to bike everywhere, pop into town & access all the beaches.

We really enjoyed the unit and the pool. The garage was a plus! The unit had all the comforts of home and was clean and modern. We sat out on the deck for dinner and watched the beautiful boats going in and out of the canal. My husband enjoyed the pier.

We booked 4 months earlier before our stay and we're not sure what it meant on a "waterway". So, we can now tell you it is a deep canal connected to the ocean complete with tides and jumping fish. This is a beautiful condominium complex, with individual owners and we feel privileged to have stayed here. All in all we...

Back to SPOTW after an earlier visit a year or two ago. Great quality resort style apartment with comfortable contemporary furnishings and an excellent king size bed. Large balcony with good views of the waterway and surrounding hills. Very private with gated access and own keyed garage. Five minute drive to Whitianga town centre and all facilities.
