Large or small groups, great location. $90-$210

 In booking the whole place we had plenty of room; great living space and outdoor area. Walked to the beach in about 10 minutes. Really enjoyed our stay.

Mini Whananaki Beach House

 WE had a great extended family holiday at Miniwhanaki. The two houses accommodated all 14 of the family including my elderly mother very well. The location was great for us - across the road from the estuary which the younger children enjoyed learning to kayak and paddle board in and the boat ramp is close by too. We also enjoyed the coastal beaches for body surfing which are a short drive away. Really relaxing beach holiday. We are looking forward to returning next year hopefully. 

Paradise Valley Lodge - large country cottage

 Excellent place for family gathering. Also, the creek behind the property is such an experience for city kids!
