Perfect getaway

Posted Mar 4, 2017
Pros: Calm, beautiful view, great amenities. A great retreat.
Cons: Air conditioning in the chalets.
Location: Head straight for the wharf and enjoy succulent meals in the local restaurants.
Calm and relaxing, the chalets are located outside of the (small) city of Mapua, on a hill overlooking the ocean. We really enjoyed our stay and wished we had stayed longer. We'll definitely come back there.

Could be amazing

In desperate need of a renovation. Rooms not clean at all, could be lovely but all feels a bit indifferent and uncared for. Cleanliness doesn't cost much, and a basic renovation / refresh would do wonders. Never saw any staff there.

This is the second time we stayed at Mapua Chalets. It is in a peaceful setting and gives you great view. The people there are friendly.

Relaxing hideaway.

Awesome view from our chalet and from the hot tub. Great place to relax and have a bbq. Only 5 min drive to Mapua Wharf, good for a Sunday arvo session.

Room(s) with a view..

Posted Mar 13, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Everything.
It was just a quick overnight stay for a wedding nearby. I added an extra guest the night before (no problem they said) and when I turned up there was a personalised message at the (unmanned) office directing us to the chalet. We had a spectacular view and my last minute guest was very pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. Two other wedding guests were also staying there and were similarly impressed. The only disappointing thing from my perspective was that I wasn't there for long enough to really take full advantage of the beautiful setting and accommodation.
