Sea Horse Delight😎
Totally enjoyed our 3 day stay here despite Cyclone Dovi’s rumble on the 1st night. All you need ... beaut’ location with sea estuary & Farm valley views. Huge outdoor deck space, very comfortable king size bed, privacy plus space. ... no shelf or cabinet space in bathroom but shower had excellent pressure. Ngunguru Sports Club, while no 5 star Silver service, it’s a sport club bistro’, provides excellent meals, at reasonable prices in a clean,friendly setting. The Hot Chilli’ Pizza place also makes great pizzas. Next time we’ll take our own groceries as both the general store & dairy at Ngunguru & Tutakaka are grubby & dirty, but that’s no fault of the Sea Horse Studio. We loved our stay and highly recommend & WILL visit again.

Waitangi Weekend
It was a great location, Leslie was very friendly. We spilt a smoothie over bed linen and she was very kind about it. The beds were made up for us when we arrived. It had everything we needed in the kitchen. She made us feel quite welcomed.
