Great property to stay in at Okiwi, right next to the shop, close to the boat ramp. Owners are very easy to deal with as well. Booked in our stay for next year already!

Great stay at this bach, it was close to the boat ramp and had outdoor cleaning bay and heaps of room for the boat. There was everything we needed inside with plenty of room for the family with a good outside area. Would recommend this as a great place to stay in the bay.
