Fodor's Review

Accommodations range from dorm rooms (NZ$22) to studios (NZ$65) and one-bedroom apartments, which have kitchens, bathrooms, and TVs (NZ$100–$195), and two-bedroom apartments (NZ$320). Brightly colored linen is supplied in all rooms, even the dorms (some are women-only). The apartments have two bedrooms sleeping four, a full bathroom (bubble bath supplied), kitchen, lounge, and deck. A subtropical garden surrounds the pool and hot tub. The beach is a few minutes' walk

away, and the hosts will lend you a bicycle or scooter if you feel like taking a ride. Although they serve a Continental breakfast, you can also have a hot breakfast delivered to your room from a nearby restaurant.
