The beach is the reason for staying here, so was great to have the perfect beach house to go with it, Owner was friendly and easy to deal with and quick with bond refund, Many thanks. 

Affordable Luxury w Magnificient Lake and Mt Views

 Location is more about the view than being close to town. the batch came with basic coffee and tea making facilities which was a nice surprise. 

Stylish, spacious house in a quiet street

 The house works perfectly for a large group, providing lovely space inside and out. Walking/biking distance to lakeside tracks parks and town with supermarket. An ideal property.

The LIttle Beach House on Oneroa Beach

 Great sun-filled, modern, clean and private room with a gorgeous view of the beach and boats. Comfy bed. Generally very quiet, although we could hear a very loud concert/pub going on into the early hours of Sunday morning as the house is located really close to the main strip. This could have just been a one-off. Very quiet most of the time. Lovely surprise to have a complimentary breaky available - toast, spreads, cereal, milk etc Highly recommend.
