“Great Spot - Beautiful Location - Quiet & Peaceful”

We stayed at Sunset Palms in the Beach House with our daughter & partner in the Studio in February. Arrived early in the monring & Annie had everyting ready to greet us.
The location right on the beach is fantastic & surrounded by leafy trees keeps the whole complex cool & shady. Easy walk to nearby restaurants along the beach. Property facilities has everything you need for your stay. Large deck out the back suitable for relaxing in the evening over a cool refreshing drink. One suggestion I would have is to upgrade the fans in both house & studio. It is difficult to get a cool breeze going on a still night so a simple refresh of this would be a positive step.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We had been on holidays for 2 months and ended our travels with a one week stay at Sunset Palms. We enjoyed every moment in this beach house with ever constant views of the ocean. Annie our hostess was very pleasant and helpful. We hope to return one day and would definitely stay at Sunset Palms. You should too!

“Quiet bliss with the best options.”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I regularly stay with Annie and Terri as I love the quiet location. The amenities are well thought out and I never cease to have a relaxing enjoyable stay. It's great to book both units together for groups.

Thank you too, to No'otoa who looks after me with the bookings.

“Perfect location and great accomodation!”

Sunset Palms was a real pleasure to spend a week long holiday in. Annie and Terry were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Nootoa (who organised the booking) was equally helpful and friendly. The location is perfect. You can spend sun soaked afternoons on the private beach, garden or deck. You can walk along the beach to local bars and restaurants. There's a small shop nearby for the essentials and a bike/car hire company in walking distance. The accommodation itself is clean, well equipped and cannot be faulted. We are already look forward to staying there again very soon!

“Heaven! We will be back!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We needed this holiday so badly, after a difficult year to date, and we knew exactly what we wanted. With Sunset Palms (we stayed in the studio) we got it! A delightful, clean and comfortable studio (the bed especially comfortable - always a problem for me!) with the best view, right on the beach.

Our hosts Annie and Terry were wonderful; helpful, generous and warm, they were also unobtrusive. Any little glitch was quickly and good-humouredly sorted. Cujo the dog was great company and we had also had a few visits from Ginger the cat!

The studio was just the right size for a couple. We spent a lot of our time on the loungers on the beach, in the shade of a convenient tree, and also on the partially-covered-in deck. We really valued the latter when it rained - and it rained quite a bit whilst we were there! There was a gorgeous view right from the main room of the studio and we kept the curtains open after we went to be so that we could wake up to the lagoon view. The kitchenette was just fine for our self-catering requirements and the solar-heated showers lovely and hot (on the one day they weren't, Annie and Terry immediately put the booster on and within an hour we were able to have that nice warm shower).

Sunset Palms is handy to the bus, convenience store and a couple of takeaway places, and a short walk along the beach from restaurants and resorts. And of course the bus stops on request at the end of the drive.

After a couple of days to settle in the place felt very much like home and our eleven days there went only too quickly. We will most definitely be back, and would warmly recommend this place to anyone who wants a really relaxing holiday away from the usual resort atmosphere.
