We booked the cottage and the Sleepout. The hosts Maureen and Richard are absolutely lovely and extremely welcoming. It was a pleasure meeting you both. Both spaces had ample room for pur group of 11 including children, teens and grandparents with plenty of space for parking and the short walk to the beach allowed the teens to come and go all day. We cant wait to find an excuse to stay again. Thank you for having us.

The property was absolutely fantastic. It was clean, tidy and had plenty of space for our family of five. Maureen was easy to communicate with and was a pleasure to deal with both in the lead up to our stay and after we had left. As a family we feel so lucky to have been able to share in their piece of Paradise. The price point is amazing and will allow those of you budget conscious individuals to holiday in style on a dime. Would absolutely recommend this place. Thank you Maureen and Richard.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - place is clean, has everything you need and is close to the beach. They made it really easy with transfers to and from Whangarei, and Tom even showed us around and filled us in on walking tracks and good spots around the bay. Thanks again for an awesome winter-time retreat! - Robert & Lizzy
