We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute of our stay. The weather was not great but it did not matter. Had lovely walk round local area on one sunny day and absolutely beautiful. House is amazing with everything we needed. Big enough for a larger group for our first night and just great for the 2 of us also. King bed super comfy in master bedroom. We would LOVE to come back again but for longer next time. Thanks for sharing your amazing home with us.
What a fantastic place to relax and take in the splendour and beauty of Tata Beach. This is truly a slice of heaven. From waking up to the soothing sounds of the native Tuis to the magnificent evening sunsets, this was the perfect holiday. We didn't want to leave. Many thanks Anne and Devon for letting us share your magnificent home. We want to come back. Carolyn, George and Family
Just amazing. I stayed here over 5 nights with friends and family. The middle night was our wedding. We put a marquee over the driveway and hosted 51 guests under it. The ceremony was steps away, on the beach. The photos were all taken within metres of the house. What a great venue for a wedding! The house is awesome, no detail missing! The owners are extremely helpful. I booked well before the wedding and over the last couple years I had a tonne of questions for them. Thank you so much for all the help! My only complaint was that my husband and I did not get enough time to just relax and enjoy it because of the wedding prep. So...we will be back for sure.
