Classic Bach close to the beach

 The property had all the basic needs you would want in a bach. Was clean and tidy. Very large lawn area would be perfect for extra guests in tents and those summer cricket games. Was easy to find and handy to Tutukaka Coast where we attended a function. Only thing I would mention is the shower water pressure was pretty dismal & it is outside (under cover) which wouldn't be that great in wet weather, but overall it was a great place for our overnight stay and very reasonably priced!

Benning's Beach House - Raumati South Bach

 Had a lovely stay here with family. Good basic bach, the kitchen was very well equipped, and the coffee pod's were appreciated.

Classic Bach close to the beach

 Perfect place to relax and a base to explore the area from. Comfortable and private, thoroughly recommend as a place to escape to. 

Classic Bach close to the beach

 Location was good with easy access to lots of nice beaches. Large section so easy to accommodate extra guests in tents as necessary.
