If you are going to hot water beach then this is the place to stay. We only stay one night at the Villa but we all wish we could have stay more! The Villa felt like our own little beach cottage with it own private parking which was a plus since we had a big van. The front yard which was was surrounded but tall hedge was private and a dream to wake up too. The inside was clean and gorgeous. The living room was spacious and perfect to chill out after visiting hot water beach at night! The hotel is just a step away from several restaurant. This was perfect for us after driving hours from Rotorua.
Pros: How pretty and private it is.
Location: Hot water beach is just 10 min away. The little restaurants and ice cream place is just a walk away
