I was only "winging it" on a solo retreat & Lil luckily had the Koru apartment vacant that night at short notice. It was exactly what I needed & Lil was so accommodating, helpful & friendly. The apartment has everything you could possibly need or want & it is all spotlessly clean & comfortable. The surrounding area certainly is filled with a plethora of beautiful fun things do in nature. It is also very peaceful, which is what I needed. Thank you again.

Our spacious 2 bedroom abode including great off street parking was great all round; clean, quiet and comfortable.
The appartment is well appointed with upmarket appilances including air conditioning, a dishwasher, washing machine and clothes dryer.
Also, a fantastic awning reduced the heat significantly.

We enjoyed a large lounge and dinning area, with plenty of information on the activities in the surrounding area.

Thanks Lil and Ron - your attention to detail is first class.

Just by chance we found the Shores in Google but wow, we were lucky...
Really the best beds and therefore the best sleep we had in NZ, complete appartment with everything you need (full kitchen, washing machine, dryer, Hifi, TV,...) and very friendly Hosts!

We could have stayed much longer, but we are back on Trail...

This accommodation is a great getaway and right across from the beach. If you want a great accommodation by the ocean, this is it. It is clean, well outfitted and well heated for those cool spring NZ nights. Lil and Ron have a great place just outside of Whangarei. They also provide great hiking information.
