Stunning Ocean - Front Beach House

 Location was right on the beach, close to wineries, Hastings and Napier. The property was clean and tidy. Highly recommend! 

Pauanui Surf Club, Beach and Park so close!

 A lovely and an immaculate homely place. Is fully equipped with home essentials. Good ventilation especially in summer with a ceiling fan fixed to every room. Closeby to beach and shops. The bach is fully fenced therefore safe for children and dogs. 

Ahuriri Townhouse modern and spacious

 A very neat and tidy place. All the conveniences of a home are available. Great location! 

Guthrie Cottage - Stunning Beachfront: from $200

 Guthrie Cottage is in a great location, all day sun, a stones throw from the beach. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. The outside bath is a pleasure to use while watching the sun set. We will gladly return again for some R & R. 

Ahuriri Townhouse modern and spacious

 We enjoyed staying in this property as it was well situated (easy walking distance of cafes and restaurants and supermarket). The house was set up really well and nice and clean. We would highly recommend this property! 

Eight on Walmer- Quiet & Peaceful

 Really enjoyed our stay. Excellent facilities, clean and tidy. Easy access to Coastal Walkway, close to all amenities. Would stay again.
