Overview Reviews
Located in Matarangi, Harbour Drive B&B is on a lake, within a 15-minute drive of Matarangi Beach and Kuaotunu Beach. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous location on a lake with beautiful birds on the doorstep, really lovely comfortable and spacious accommodation, friendly and helpful hosts, very knowledgeable about the area. Gorgeous sunsets, harbour and beach to enjoy and explore. We walked around to Rings Beach which was also lovely. The bridge at Kuaotunu was closed due to storm damage which unfortunately meant a long drive to access the Hot Water beach and the Cathedral cove area. We opted to take the 'short cut' road which was pretty grim, mainly rough gravel with some very precarious parts, the locals do drive pretty fast and furious!! Apart from that, fantastic area, we loved it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: As a New Zealander living abroad I’ve spent time in Whitianga as a child for holidays. As I moved away I hadn’t been for a while and then decided to have a beach holiday up there a couple of years ago when I was home now I return every year. Whitianga is such a lovely beach town and Beachfront Resort really makes you feel at home in their apartments. The view is amazing the garden you can sit in is beautiful and the apartments have nice furniture and extra blankets and pillows the bed is comfortable and the bathroom is very clean. It’s just a perfect spot. Also the owners are really lovely and will take time to care about their guests.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting and views were exceptional. There was plenty of space to move around and dump all of our bags. The bed was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. I loved waking up to the sound of the waves.
Cons: There was no tray! The eating areas were both quite a way from the kitchen but there was no means of transporting our food or crockery from one to the other. As it was self catering we had to go and buy our breakfast. The other places that we have stayed at were much cheaper AND included breakfast. I felt that we were paying just for the location.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great management/owner who gave us a very friendly welcome. Rooms had a lot of space, shower was excellent, and a visit by Charlie the motel cat was a nice bonus.
Cons: As the manager had been away for the day and was trying to catch up when we arrived, our room was inadvertently left set for two people instead of three. This meant we were down a towel and a pillow and also ran out of bathroom supplies. It was a small annoyance and I’m sure would have been fixed if we’d said something. It was also a warm night and I had trouble sleeping as a result given the room felt hot and stuffy. However, there was a fan in the room which I could have used

Cons: Nothing
7.0 Good
Pros: The views and location of this unit are excellent.
Cons: The housekeeping was less than stellar and the supplies left were minimal. We had to ask for more toilet paper, for example. There was a general sense of the property needing maintenance, such as our shower head leaked and the shower door did not close properly to stop water from running onto the floor. The only heat is plug in radiant heaters and there is no air conditioning. The windows do not have screens, so we received several bug bites. The Internet was incredibly slow and unreliable.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Well run, clean and quiet. Friendly and helpful managers. Huge separate lounge area and small outside seating area. Easy reach of beach, shops and eateries, ferry giving access to further beaches. Felt a safe area.
Cons: Slightly disappointed as the name - Beachside - implied, to me, that the location was just that but it was in fact down a side street and behind other motels. So saying, it was only steps from the beach. The outside seating area was adjacent to the car park and people walking past so not private.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent staff, location and size of the apartment. We had great sea views as well. Loved the pool.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wally & Maire are fantastic hosts. No, they're not hosts, they're more like family. Wonderful experience! They really couldn't have done enough for us. My partner and I had a fabulous time and are looking forward to another trip to the Coromandel. Wally loves to talk, so make sure you ask him about what to do in the area and whose who. There's a lot of playful banter between Wally & Maire. So lovely to see a couple so in tune with each other. We got to use the kayak which was a lot of fun. I love chickens so I got a cuddle from one happy hen. Not to forget friendly, affectionate Fern (Labrador)! There is delicious homemade bread, homegrown honey, eggs, rhubarb and more at breakfast. Yum!Yum! Lisa & Hugh
Cons: That we couldn't stay longer :-) That we didn't have time to walk over the hill the see the sunrise... the bed was too comfortable. That we didn't have at least one dinner with Wally & Maire.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Peace and quite, nice beaches and especially Maire, Wally and Fern for company

Wonderful breakfast and waking up to the smell of fresh bread was superb. Sharing our breakfast together with the other guests as well as Wally and Maire was such a pleasure.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The views from our room and the breakfast are were spectacular! The beach is just down the road from this property, an easy walk or a two second drive. It offers great swimming or fishing. The host went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of, even in the periods of time when we were to be more self-sufficient. He offered us the use of his kayak and barbecue when we wanted to bbq our own meal. He taught us how to shuck the scallops we caught and cook them. He was great company! His wife was very friendly as well and I hear she usually makes the best meals ever, however she was recovering from some recent medical treatments so we did not see her as often on this trip.
Cons: The only thing wrong was that we didn’t stay longer!

Cons: We just found the location to be pricey. The owner appeared impersonal, like business-as-usual.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Access to The beach front
Cons: Bit cramped even for two, had two very soft beds for couches even tho the room was for two. Bathroom was far too compact, Toilet was jammed into the smallest space like a microtel.. hard to move to access toiletpaper (even for a small person) and our hand towel would fall onto the fall under the toilet (gross) the fall in the shower floor is too steep, felt like it could have been dangerous for some. Comforter blankets in room were stained/marked, sheets and pillows felt/smelled clean. Nice soaps and body wash, liked that there were enough clean towels for two showers each Probably wont stay again
7.9 Good
Pros: The location overlooking the beach. The rooms were spacious and we had a rather comfortable stay.

Pros: We had such a wonderful stay with Diana and Gordon! After traveling around both the north and south islands for 5 weeks, staying in a camper, various hotels, motels and B&Bs, it was such a delight to end our NZ vacation by staying with Diana and Gordon. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like we had arrived at our relative's home and felt immediately relaxed and comfortable. Our bedroom was private, bed was comfortable, breakfast was great (a choice a various cereals, fresh fruit and made-to-order eggs) but the time spent with the two of them was the best!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: As a New Zealander living abroad I’ve spent time in Whitianga as a child for holidays. As I moved away I hadn’t been for a while and then decided to have a beach holiday up there a couple of years ago when I was home now I return every year. Whitianga is such a lovely beach town and Beachfront Resort really makes you feel at home in their apartments. The view is amazing the garden you can sit in is beautiful and the apartments have nice furniture and extra blankets and pillows the bed is comfortable and the bathroom is very clean. It’s just a perfect spot. Also the owners are really lovely and will take time to care about their guests.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting and views were exceptional. There was plenty of space to move around and dump all of our bags. The bed was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. I loved waking up to the sound of the waves.
Cons: There was no tray! The eating areas were both quite a way from the kitchen but there was no means of transporting our food or crockery from one to the other. As it was self catering we had to go and buy our breakfast. The other places that we have stayed at were much cheaper AND included breakfast. I felt that we were paying just for the location.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great management/owner who gave us a very friendly welcome. Rooms had a lot of space, shower was excellent, and a visit by Charlie the motel cat was a nice bonus.
Cons: As the manager had been away for the day and was trying to catch up when we arrived, our room was inadvertently left set for two people instead of three. This meant we were down a towel and a pillow and also ran out of bathroom supplies. It was a small annoyance and I’m sure would have been fixed if we’d said something. It was also a warm night and I had trouble sleeping as a result given the room felt hot and stuffy. However, there was a fan in the room which I could have used
