Amazing studio, and very close to the beach. Definitely recommended if you're looking for a night stay at Papamoa. The studio was extremely clean. Thanks for hosting. Cheers

We checked in around 12pm and Phil and Robyn was so nice and welcoming. Despite the bad weather during our 1 night stay, we managed to stay warm and comfortable in the lovely room. Generous breakfast provided with Easter bunny chocolate. Highly recommended and would love to stay here again next time.

5 stars budget stay, attached self-contain unit, (own entry access, very convenience) with 2 single beds and en-suit bathroom (good hot shower). Small but everything is there. Phil's and his wife are very friendly, easy to communicate, check in & check out no hassle at all. 4 mins walk to the beach, quiet location, parking space available. Feel like we had a holiday home, highly recommend. I will definitely return again for surf trip. Thanks again Phil & Rybon
