Customer Testimonials

Great place to stay and thank you for the late check out,

Thanks again Gary & Caroline

This is a beautiful large home located on a hillside with views over rolling green hills to the ocean and the other outlook the harbour. Stylish and spacious with excellent amenities. Grateful for the washing machine after days spent surfing and swimming at the local Ocean Beach. Highly recommend for large families. Your house was great for our holiday with our family from Australia. Very clean and spacious and stylish. Ocean Beach was fantastic for surfing and swimming. Thanks Paige.

Summer family holiday

A impressive entrance through a large beautiful garden. House more than met our expectations. Spacious with large lounge and kitchen area’s. Dinning table handled our group of 9 with heaps of room for several more. Lovely views in all directions and well situated for access to local attractions. Thoroughly recommended and would stay again.

Great Spot.

Awesome weekend with friends in this cool house. loved it, very easy rental with great communication. The only thingthat would of made it better would of been for the shade sail to have been up, thanks to the amazing Northland weather! Cheers Rick , we might be back.

Family Holiday  

We had a lovely eleven days appreciating the house and its wonderful location. Thank you for your warmth and help during our stay.Vic & Jane

AN exceptional place to stay – one of the best we have ever stayed at in NZ and a great host too. The place has such fantastic views over the Pacific on one side and the harbour on the other. The owner has done a fantastic job maximising the enjoyment of the views through the way that the outdoor seating is set up. The property is incredibly well presented through out and has everything you could possibly need for a family break. Highlight had to be sitting in the Spa listening to the Kiwis. Will definittely be back

Great house, magic views, very clean, all facilities very high standard, great landlord to deal with over Covid period , group of 8 adult kayakers loved the house and location plus close to great ocean beach. Would book again

Beautiful home which gave us a Bali/Hawaii/Pacific vibe. The views are amazing! Spa pool was perfect and outdoor area is such a great use of space. Rick is a great host who was easy to get hold off if we needed help. We are already wanting to book again! Rooms are nice and spacious, our kids aged 7 and 5 loved their room. Cot and high chair provided for our 1 year old as well. Definitely recommend this for a family getaway. Thanks again Rick ????

Bluey’s Family and Friends
We have stayed at many properties over the years. This one is our favourite The house is private and spacious. Loads of room for parking. We had 2 cars and 2 Vans. The house is beautiful. The open plan and indoor outdoor flow makes it easy for a big group. It’s a beautiful home Everything you need for cooking and entertainment ect. The location for us was a bonus. We were able to surf at Ocean Beach (5mins away) and visit friends in Pataua South for a Birthday dinner Spa Pool overlooking Whangarei Harbour was a favourite for my teenager’s. Helped them unwind after the big days The Property owner Rick lives on the property. But in a detached private dwelling. I like that way better than an owner who doesn’t live at the residence. Because there is always something that you’ll need help with. Rick is so easy to talk to and and will do whatever he can to make your holiday special We’ll be back ????❤️ Bluey

Stunning in every way
We stayed at Ricky’s property for 5 nights over New Years and it was absolutely perfect for a larger group of friends. Plenty of space, spa was amazing and made for a good activity when it wasn’t quite beach weather. We loved our time and look forward to coming back sometime! Thanks again ☺️

We loved our stay at “Gone Coastal!” The views were gorgeous, and the house had everything we needed. We were in town from the U.S. for a family wedding, and we wanted a place that was practical but still made us feel like we were on vacation. The house was lovely and so well furnished. We highly recommend this property!
