Nestled in a quiet corner of Whitianga’s hotly desired Aqua Soleil complex, the French for Sunshine holiday villa is inviting you to turn the key, drop your bags and activate relaxation mode!

Modern, well-presented and designed for maximum comfort, French for Sunshine boasts two cosy bedrooms on the ground floor, the master featuring a sliding glass door opening out to a private deck with views over the lush front lawn. A spacious bathroom, complete with washing machine and dryer, features heated towel rails for a bit of holiday indulgence.

You can almost sneak a peek of the views as you make your way up the stairs to the open-plan living-dining area. Fully furnished with all the must-haves for easy holiday living, you can almost feel French for Sunshine willing you to nestle yourself into one of the comfy couches with a book, or to watch your favourite TV show. On those warm, blue-sky Coromandel days, you’ll most definitely have the sliding glass door open to enjoy outdoor living and alfresco dining on the balcony.

The galley-style kitchen is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to self-cater on your beach getaway, including a coffee percolator, sandwich press and even a dishwasher to make washing up a breeze. The central dining table is perfectly placed for an intimate dinner spot, while the bonus seating at the kitchen island offers a great option for casual dining or a cheeky cheese platter and a glass of wine.

Aqua Soleil not only boasts a fantastic location at Ohuka (Brophy's) Beach, it also features a shared year-round outdoor swimming pool, spa pool, and outdoor leisure area that guests at French for Sunshine are welcome to make use of. Snap some holiday pics poolside and use the WIFI back at the villa to share them with your friends!

Being the biggest town on the Coromandel Peninsula, there is no shortage of things to do in Whitianga, and here at French for Sunshine you are only a short seven minute drive from cafes, restaurants, shops, as well as all the essential amenities. Buffalo Beach is also not far away, as is the ferry that in less than five minutes will have you exploring the stunning coastline and lush walking trails at Cooks Beach. You could even venture out on a day trip to Hot Water Beach, Hahei, or the dramatic Cathedral Cove.

Relaxation is at the ready here at French for Sunshine!

Stayed February 2021

Great location near the beach, a bit out of town can walk if you would like probably about a 30 min walk. Nice pool area. Apartments has oil, salt and pepper and herbs plus glad wrap, baking paper which is good if your wanting to cook big kitchen. On arrival we noticed some small spills on the bedside tables in one of the rooms and also the chairs of the outside table 2 of them were broken and the others didn't seem to safe. Would definitely recommend that you get new ones. Overall stay was good.

Great location but the place is looking tired. Would have been great to have access to a bbq. Small extras such as an airing rack and pegs for the washing line would have been a bonus.

Lovely townhouse with everything a family could need for a holiday. The kids loved the pool, and being across the road from the harbour was great for a walk to the playground. We’ll definitely come back!
