Love that it's walking distance to the beautiful beach and a great park/playground. Would highly recommend this as a family bach, all the amenities and comforts of home provided. Lots of great cafes and shops nearby, we will definitely be back! Denise Campbell 26 Nov Awesome place to stay with heaps of room for the extended family. Plenty to do close by with the beach and parks within walking distance. Pillow top beds were very comfortable. Very clean and tidy. Amanda Watson 4 Dec We really enjoyed staying at this bach, it more than accommodated our large group and the multiple living areas meant we could either split up or all be together. It was tidy and modern with everything you need. There is a kids playground nearby and the beach only a short walk away. Both Tauranga and Karangahaki Gorge are not too far away so lots of options. We will definitely stay here again! 10 out of 10 Russell Pedersen Excellent4.6/5 Good space for extended family gathering 4/5 AnitaVo2 Good space for extended family gathering.

Bruce and Donna make prompt contact and have things sorted so you more or less just arrive and unlock the door like it was your own home. Awesome place, lovely location. Most of the family on the trip had not seen or stayed round the beach life so this trip was so amazing for them. The house was very spacious like two houses, one on top of the other, comfortable bedding, all necessary utensils were supplied right down to playing cards, pen/ paper etc. Would recommend this home to all.
