Outdoor living, expansive lake views, sunny

 Lovely situation and upstairs living accommodation spacious and full of character. Really appreciated the large garden and the various outside decks. Very comfortable with ample room for 9 of us to relax and appreciate the beautiful surroundings. Only slight downside for us was the downstairs en suite bedroom which while comfortable and spacious lacked a fresh feel. However we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and very happy to recommend this property 

Omaha River Retreat - Entertainers Paradise

 Great spot, we enjoyed out stay. 

The Views - Waihi Beach Beach Holiday Home

 The views - amazing! Location - great! The internal lift - great for the suitcases and groceries. Will recommend to others :-) 

Private retreat, stunning views and sea access

 Had an amazing time - the house was stunning and the perfect place to spend our NY break. Very well equipped, felt like a home to us and we honestly haven't stopped talking about it. Very private, lovely neighbours, gorgeous gardens, and loads of entertainment for both kids &adults. Pizza oven, table tennis and spa were a huge hit. Much better in person than what can be conveyed in pictures. Little surprises around every corner. Phil &Marion thought of everything!Highly recommend

Omaha River Retreat - Entertainers Paradise

 Fantastic location, great view, big property and large house. We took the dinghy out for a row in the estuary, and walked through the old kauri trees. We stopped at the Matakana Market and a couple of wineries on the way up. Also Omaha Beach as it's so close.
