See what our guests have to say about their wonderful experience here at Waihi Paradise Beach Resort
We put a 10 rating, but we would put 11 or 12 if it was possible! The apartment is perfect, spacious, with a pool and spa, close to the beach. And what about the reception, at the top of the best. No hesitation possible when booking this accommodation
Amazing hosts and a beautiful spacious apartment. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
Everything you need for a wonderful stay ... and more. The best hosts I have come across. The apartment was great, plenty of room, all the home comforts and more. We felt spoilt - and with the spa, pool , BBQ and alfresco courtyard eating, the offer of bikes and more - going back in warmer months is a must. Karen and Peter stand out as hosts, it was lovely experience for us as guests.

"We will be back" The property was well presented and the hosts were exceptional, very helpful and were able to provide great insights to the local places to visit and where to go for meals etc The property had everything we needed and more to have a relaxing 3 days.
Bevan, New Zealand
Our hosts were extremely helpful and went beyond the normal service one receives at similar properties for instance offering to take us to and pick us up after dinner at a local restaurant so we could enjoy a drink.

It was a great 2-night stop at the end of our trip to just rest and be happy Peter and Karen have created an oasis for guests in Waihi. We were a group of 4 couples and stayed in both cottages. The place is gorgeous with a beautiful pool and hot tub and just across the street from the beach. The kitchen and living spaces are perfect. We arranged breakfast one morning with Karen's famous muesli and we loved it so much we asked for the recipe. They are fabulous hosts. We walked the beach in the morning and ate twice at Flat White which was delicious. The best dinner of our entire trip was 20 minutes away at Bistro at Falls Retreat - just go there.
The standard of the accommodation was top notch, with the best possible location. The property stood out as one of the nicest in the area. Peter and Karen made us feel so welcome and our stay so special, especially as it was Emma’s (my girlfriend’s) 30th birthday surprise. They really did go the extra mile. We wish we could have stayed longer but know for sure that we will be back!

The greatest air BnB experience we have had, hands down. The hosts were amazing to deal with - went out of their way to make our stay awesome! The location was perfect (just over the road from the beach). Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice two bedroom place to spend their weekend.
Tom, New Zealand
One of our most caring if not best hosts. We were in for a short stay but that didn’t make our small trip to Waihi any less enjoyable. Peter and Karen were kind enough to point us in the right direction to make the most out of Waihi in the time we had, and we did. The stay was great and hosts were more than helpful. Would definitely come back to relax and fully enjoy everything the area has to offer.
David, New Zealand
Peter and Karen were the most amazing Hosts, going above and beyond, leaving great little touches around the place too. The cottage was sparkling clean, and a great set up for even when the weather wasn’t the greatest. We only stayed for one night but wish we had stayed for two at least - we definitely will be back at some point!
Abby, New Zealand
An outstanding location to stay and hospitality from the hosts that really is second to none. Peter and Karen make you feel at home and offer the best suggestions on what to do in Waihi. We thoroughly enjoyed and stay and will be sure to return to their amazing resort!
Blair, New Zealand
Peter and Karen's apartment is outstanding. It's in a great spot and it's very stylish with top quality furnishings and linens. They go out of their way to make your stay special. The spa pool was a great addition to an already perfect night. The rain didn't matter, in fact it was lovely sitting in the spa when the squall came through. Thanks for having us.
What a great location and property with outstanding Hosts, you could ask for nothing more as a guest at this wonderful property. The attention to detail and willingness of Peter and Karen to ensure our stay (and extended family's stay) was top notch. We would certainly recommend the Property, location and Hosts to any potential travelers looking to stay in the Waihi area.

If I could give Peter and Karen 10 stars I would! Amazing hospitality, amazing location and amazing home. Thank you so much for sharing and being such lovely hosts, we will definitely be back!
Vincitte, New Zealand
A slice of heaven! Couldn't have asked for a better way to finish our holiday. The accommodations were absolutely perfect. The home was clean, modern, full of little touches, and super comfy beds. To top it off there is private beach access, a hot tub, a pool and the absolute loveliest hosts you can imagine. If you are planning on staying in Waihi Beach, look NO further and BOOK THIS accommodation.
Jackson, New Zealand
Absolutely amazed when we walked through, superbly styled with that touch of luxury and all the comforts of home plus more. Peter and Karen, top notch hosts. We thank you for the lovely stay and we tried to stay longer but it was booked out. I can certainly understand why.
Christina, New Zealand
Some say “life is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you are going to get” - well all I can say is that this is definitely one to pick out of the box! Fabulous hosts, location and a relaxing place to stay! You can be as busy or as relaxed as you wish with so many options on your doorstep! Great local cafes and restaurants for eating out or you can cook at the accommodation and dine in! Clean and comfortable. Bicycles are available for use to have a look around this wonderful location, as well as pool and spa facilities on site for a soak at the end of the day!
Angeleinne, New Zealand
We stayed with Peter & Karen at Waihi Beach Paradise Resort for 7 days. The property was spotless, the attention to detail was a great surprise and the beach...absolutely pristine. Peter & Karen had a treasure full of advice on the area and attractions. More than enough towels & coffee were supplied. It is lovely, beautiful and quiet. The perfect formula for a relaxing romantic getaway. Oh...did I mention the heated pool and spa. It was supercalifragilisticexpealidocious!

We loved the privacy of the cottage, and we had lots of fun and giggles while staying here. The spa pool just out the door was perfect for a dip and beautifully clean. It had everything we needed including extra towels for the pool. As the beach was so close we watched the sunset and rise again. Peter & Karen were great just checking we had everything and tips on where to dine ( even offering to drop us off and collect us). We had a great weekend and created lots of memories.

We had the pleasure of renting both apartment and cottage for a 3 day weekend. The accommodation is absolutely lovely. Beach just across the road and easy walk down to the park. It was so awesome to get away from the city! Great mini break for my daughter, Dad and I. Can't wait to come back! Read more

We stayed in the cottage for 6 nights in January. Our stay was great with the accommodation extremely clean and in great condition with thoughtful extras such as chocolate and coffee capsules. The outside areas were much enjoyed including the covered area at the front which really extended the inside living area, as well as the sunny area at the back which included a great private spa pool. The pool area was magnificent, very well maintained and heated, along with great lounging area. Much enjoyed both with our young child and on our own. The accommodation was exemplified by Peter and Karen who are superb hosts. Very friendly and attentive to ensure that everything was in good order. When the microwave decided to go, we had a replacement ready to go in no time at all which wasn’t expected. Great location as well, across from the beach, around the corner from the fish and chip shop and dairy, and a few km’s from town. Highly recommend staying here and we will be sure to return next time we are in the area.

We had a fantastic surprise 60th for a friends birthday staying at Waihi Beach Paradise. Such a beautiful space to relax and enjoy each others company. Wonderful hosts who genuinely care. Thanks so much for the attention to detail, gorgeous location, special extra touches and a wonderful weekend.

We were in Waihi Beach for a birthday celebration and stayed at this beautiful accommodation. Peter & Karen are the ultimate hosts with nothing too much trouble. Very neat & tidy and only metres from the beach and walking distance to the township. Highly recommended!
Ken G, Toowoomba, Australia
I was fortunate to spend a whole week in Waihi Beach and I loved staying in the apartment by Peter and Karen's house. Their attention to detail is impeccable with lots of little extras - including fresh fruit and quality linen! They are working hard to ensure they operate with a light footprint, without compromising on their quality of service. The free use of bikes was an added bonus - there is some lovely easy riding right from the front door, along the coastline. Being located right by the beach made me feel instantly relaxed and I'd love to come again!
