Our first address was the Old Oak Boutique Hotel in Mangonui, but unfortunately the rooms we were looking for were fully booked, and the last available suite upstairs simply has too low ceilings for my little claustrophobia. Hence we spent our time in Cable Bay at the Doubtless Bay Villas. And I have to say, I increasingly like two-floor apartments. It’s fun to have space and especially if you are travelling a long time you get to the point where you can’t see your suitcase anymore, seriously. So lucky us, we got a two bed apartment with a splendid view over the beautiful Cable Bay. We hidded our suitcases in one bedroom – what a relief – and slept in the one towards the bay, so as to enjoy the view.
Talking about views, don’t miss to buy a nice bottle of wine to enjoy on your balcony, listening to the ocean, whilst gazing in amazment at the absolutely bright, star-spattered sky. It’s incredible wonderful!
