"Ahipara is our kiwi family's regular holiday destination for over 15 years. The temperature is always warmer in the Far North, unobscured sunsets, and the outstanding surf in a SW swell - round the corner at Shipwreck Bay, has allowed us to meet many interesting tourists from all over.
This time as 3 adults we stayed in the newly owned and beautifully appointed "THE HAVEN" 13 -16 July 2017.
It had the expected upstairs unit sea vista, but add seaviews from every room (even while in bed!) the small wrap around deck accessible from many ranchsliders including from the 2 bedrooms, both with super-king beds, quality linen, each with a hotel-style ensuite with a plethora of toiletries; modern full kitchen (even a dishwasher!); access to laundry facilities, all set in tropical garden planting combined to make this place OUTSTANDING.
Fully tiled floors throughout were cold on a winter night, but ample heaters were provided. Many thoughtful extras - throws, torches, games, books ...
Thanks Ray for your warm hospitality and great communication, we loved it in mid winter, can't wait for summer. We will be back."
Beautiful getaway. Delightful experience. Wonderful time together. Tremendous.
The place is both beautiful and very comfortable. We have thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and we pray that God will continually bless this lovely home.
