#3 of 4 Speciality lodging in Ohope
GreenLeaders Gold level
Driftsand Boutique Accommodation is nestled along the surf beach of West End Ohope. This part of the beach is wonderfully sheltered and warm, alongside a pohutukawa-lined Ohope hill, a blaze of scarlet in the summer. The huge expanse of white sand stretching for 11km offers fantastic sea views across to the East Cape. From the units, it is less than a minute's walk to the water. Tariff: (2 persons) from $150-$220, $25 per extra person. Negotiable for longer stays over 2 days.

We spent 3 nights here in one of the beach facing single level rooms. Beach is just across a quiet dead end road , White Island on the horizon. We made full use of the view with lunch and a takeaway for a few of our meals in our room , enjoying the sun or moon over the sea. Well worth the few extra dollars for the view. Very friendly and helpful owners. Room also had Sky Sports which was a nice surprise. Enjoyed the area , very chilled out, nice people. Not sure if we will ever be back but if we do , we will certainly rebook the same motel.

Stayed for two nights in late Jan 2019. Superb. Units are finished to a high standard, good quality and comfortable bed, soundproofing is excellent, effective and quiet air con. Rooms are spacious, as are the bathrooms. Better than the photos. No complaints about any aspect of the accommodation. And the owners are nice people, its on a quiet road, the beach is a stone's throw away. Recommended, and we'd go back again without hesitation.

We stayed here for a wedding and loved it! The beach was right across the road and rain forest covered mountains right behind us - can't think of many places that give you such views! The motel is run by a couple who are friendly, helpful and clearly love what they do. Its perfect for anyone wanting to just getaway from the craziness of life. And the bathtub was the biggest I've come across! And the shops are about 5 min walk-away with an amazing Mexican restaurant and a few cafe choices.

Excellent accommodation right on the beachfront. Friendly welcome from Emma and the apartment found to be spotlessly clean and extremely tastefully decorated. The bed was superb. Lovely bathroom with a shower and a huge tub, Swimming just 50 metres across the front lawn and into the sea. Highly recommend Driftsand. We will be back.
