'Lovely and clean, including the outside spa. Fantastic views from upstairs but the downside is going down the rear stairs to access beach or spa. I guess you can't have it both ways so choose what is most important. The owners are really helpful and I would stay here again.

We stayed here because it was a ground floor level unit fitted out for wheelchair accessibility and it has a good walk in shower practical for a wheelchair user. This was a spotlessly clean, compact, space, which could have been so much better, if the second sleeping area had been incorporated into the main unit, for use by two people...

I stayed at the Beachfront Resort for two days and had a fabulous stay! They really thought of everything - the kitchen and bathroom were both fully stocked and modern, the windows had blackout blinds, the main bedroom could be fully partitioned off, there was a "sand dunk" pan outside the door for sandy feet, etc. The owners were lovely...

The Beachfront Resort has a great location right on the beautiful Buffalo Beach. From the room there is always the sea to watch and the people who enjoy it. There is a barbecue area and a spa to share with the other guests. The details that marred our vist were all inside our unit. The bed was soft and any...

Even though I was down here for one night it was by far the best place I have stayed at so far. The view in the morning is just fantastic and being beach front eliminates some if not all traffic noise. I would love to have stayed longer however due to work commitments I could not....maybe next time.

Our two night stay here was very enjoyable! Although there is just enough parking in the front, so unloading may be a tight squeeze if they are full, all is forgiven the minute you walk in and: a) see the view; b) note the rooms and bath are spotlessly clean, and c) every amenity has been thoughtfully made available for...

Stayed here for two nights with family. The location is superb with spectacular views across the bay directly from the balcony. The property is located right on the beach with direct access from the lawn where there is a communal BBQ facility. There is also a spa pool for use. Kate the owner was very friendly and helpful.

We loved our room, and our stay here. The rooms are modern, nice, and comfortable on the inside. The staff are especially nice people, and quite helpful. And the beachfront location is really tough to beat. It's a little too far from the center of town (where most of the restaurants and shops are) to walk, but it's only a...

I had two nights here while I travelled alone around the North Island. The first floor unit was finished to a high standard and clean with a balcony and spectacular views. The kitchen area was well equipped with a fridge and microwave. The garden area is where you will find sun loungers, a trampoline, hot tub, and decked BBQ area...

We spent two nights at the Beachfront Resort this past week. We arrived a bit before check in time and our room was ready for us. This place was a dream location for our son - with beachfront access, a trampoline and a hot tub available for guest use, he was a happy camper :-). The views from the rooms...
