Lovely owners, cosy and tidy bach. We really enjoyed ourselves with the fire on the wintery days and the fishing proved good for us at one of the many fishing spots near by. Thanks Clare and Graham. We will be back.

What a lovely little spot on the Whangarei Heads. Beautifully presented, very clean and has all the necessary requirements for a self contained holiday. Clare was a lovely host, who very much respected our privacy, but was there to answer questions if needed. Would definitely come again.
Response from Owner
Our pleasure to host you. You are welcome any time Clare Graeme
