We had an incredible stay & trip down memory lane. It is in prime location opposite the beach & beautiful views, we all especially loved the relaxed kiwi style bach and left with our cups full. Lots of space & perfect for 1-2 families. Until next time, thank you for sharing your apsolute gem! Cheers, Clarrissa Arnold (Morrinsville)
Great spot, really enjoyed our few days of piece and quite. House had everything we needed and was clean and tidy. Hope to return for another few days later in the year. Can't wait. Cheers

A classic kiwi bach in a stunning location. Superb views from the picture window and of course the beach is literally across the road. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a very relaxing, fabulous few days and would have liked to stay longer. We would very happily come back.
