Stunning quiet get away Cottage

 If you haven't been to this part of NZ, get there fast. Its just gorgeous. This is a fun bach a very short walk to a magnificent safe swimming beach. Everything you need to have a great get away, clean and tidy. Tips for fellow travellers - remember your insect repellant! There is a very well stocked dairy in Orere Point there is no supermarket. We are on vodafone network and couldn't get any cell coverage at the house - but had plenty at the beach. Best fish n chips EVER at Kaiaua
