Classic kiwi experience

 Location was great, so handy to the beach which was lovely and quiet. The bach was great for the dog being fully fenced. There was a little road noise but that didn't bother us ... we enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the sky divers. Was a very relaxing and peaceful holiday, we'd like to visit again. 

Comfortable Beach-Front House

 Tranquil setting and very friendly community. House provides everything you need for extended stay including books, games and toys for children. Expansive deck to sit on to view sea and down the coast to Mt Egmont. Amazing sunsets. A wonderful place for beachcombing and to relax and enjoy the views.

Activity Central  for Taupo/The Central PlateaU

 This house was amazing and outshone our expectations. We loved having it as a home base and we wish we could have spent more time there! It was magic arriving to a warm house with underfloor heating and everyone was blown away with how it was stocked with everything that we could ever need. After we finished the Tongariro Crossing, the boys were thrilled to be able to watch the cricket live on the projector while us girls went to Taupo for the afternoon. This would be perfect for a family too. 

Classic kiwi experience

Breathtaking views of Whangarei Heads

 Fabulous Bach, lovely comfortable relaxed feel! Highly recommended! 

Boutique Bach with Sea Views

 We had a great stay. Three Fishes was exactly what we were expecting and Dot and Steve were excellent to deal with.
