We rented the main house and the chalet which worked quite well for 4 adults and 1 child plus small dog (the sofa bed in the main house was ok for a child - there is only one bedroom is each house). The private walk to the beach is a bonus, although the tides didn't really work well for swimming during the middle of the day (it is a tidal area). It will be great when the chalet is self contained but a quick walk up to the house is not a problem in the dry. Gary and Sandy have a lovely garden and a great view of the water and the property felt very homely and peaceful. Our grandson loved the toys and what a great selection of books for us all. Thank you, it was a lovely break from reality.
We stayed in this beautiful location for 5 nights over Easter. It was amazing, the cottage was presented so beautifully and the beach right there. Our dog enjoyed it very much. Was escape from everyday life and only one hour from Auckland. Pure paradise and will definitely be returning. Mark & Jane
Response from Owner
Thankyou. Great guests who we recommend and welcome back. Gary & Sandy
We really enjoyed our stay here. Its perfect for a family with a dog. The place is well equipped and very comfortable with lots of different spaces to "hang" and we appreciated having the two separate dwellings - it was fun for the kids to be across the garden. We could have lodged them in with us but they took the dog and kinda felt like they were "camping out" even though its a very comfy sleepout cottage! The view is great as is the front deck, the place is quiet and secluded and very close to the beach. Access to other places is very easy. We did the Mahurangi farm forestry trail which is a great dog walk and we also walked Ti Point and Pakiri too which isn't that far either (my favourite beach). Gary was an absolute pleasure to deal with - flexible and friendly but clear and responsive. Yes, we would go back!
