About this Holiday House

BEACHFRONT PROPERTY. This property is on the beach. A beautiful, white sandy beach, with very safe swimming for children and great for snorkeling, diving and fishing for all the family. A very protected beach with boat launching access. The original school bungalow was used by the Headmaster and his family. Built in the 1930's, high ceilings, beautiful timber floors and large sash windows looking out to the Cavalli Islands and Te Ngaere Bay. Our guest are always blown away by the breath taking views! Very old pohutakawa trees stretch across the lawn and down onto the beach creating a natural shade canopy for those hot summer days. A great natural adventure playground for children. This is the place to recreate an iconic kiwi beach holiday. Picnic's on the beach...lazy days sitting under the shade of the pohutakawa trees. Swimming in clear, blue pacific ocean or just fishing from the beach.

this is a special place. Lovely secluded beach with great swimming and a variety of water experiences on offer - including some rocks with good snorkelling. Sandy beach with shelter from Pohutukawa - what more could you want! House is really well set up with everything you need to relax fully and plenty of space. Comfortable beds and great views from the deck which is the perfect place for summer dining and watching the sunset. Perfect!
The perfect holiday at the perfect house. A wonderful week with the family. Amazing views coupled with easy access to the beach. Thank you for having us.

Fabulous! Going to sleep and waking up to waves lapping the shore & the tui birds singing and dancing amongst the flax bushes right by the front porch, was such a treat. What a calming, peaceful and enchanting property. The house is a home away from home, with all the necessities and very comfortable beds plus so much more. It is well maintained and lovely and clean. Easy, friendly and informative communication from Leonie. I greatly look forward to returning again. Many thanks Leonie for your hospitality :)
