We had the opportunity to stay at Tapeka del Mar, what a great week, great service from the owner and support people just world class, well worth it.
This holiday home is a magnificent way to experience Tapeka point. Breathtaking outlook, beautifully equipped, comfortable beds, plenty of land for the kids to play cricket and the separate living quarters for the teenagers worked beautifully. To top it off the weather was amazing and we were able to experience the hole in the rock, deep water cove wreck dive, amazing island beaches, snorkeling and fishing. The boat ramp is a stones throw away and the Bay of Islands is a magical playground for boating. We will be back!
Response from Owner
Good weather helps but we are thrilled you all enjoyed Tapeka del Mar as much as we do. We look forward to your next stay
Amazing weekend, thanks so much we just loved the house and beach was so good to enjoy and relax just a step away from the beach and swim.
