I am very sorry about the terrible behaviour of the guests next door. You never know what people will do when they drink to excess. The police were called twice but did not respond.

Loved the location of this property - right on Buffalo Beach at Whitianga, but our unit was set back on the property, so it was nice and quiet. Great base for exploring the Coromandel Peninsula (Cathedral Cove, Hahei and Hot Water Beach, Coromandel Town, Lonely Bay etc). Complimentary spades provided for digging a hot pool at Hot Water Beach. Five minute walk to a corner store or a short drive to bigger supermarkets for self-catering. My only criticism of the property was the glass ceilinged kitchen. While this would be wonderful at cooler times of the year, the sun came straight through during the day and created a glasshouse effect, warming up the entire unit.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. The kitchen windows definitely need some attention and it is on my upgrade list. At least you are able to open the doors and windows to get a through draft to help with the cooling at this time of year.
