Ohiwas' Best Bach,Clean,Cosy & Private.

 Privacy, cleanliness, atmosphere, view. Set on farmland with water views. Loved the pond at the front of our deck with the jumping fish and birdlife. Always something to look at. Loved the woody interior - can imagine it would be lovely in the winter too with the potbelly. 

Sea La Vie - Luxury Accommodation

 A beautifully designed and kept studio. Some lovely touches of luxury that made our stay extra special. The bed was absolutely delicious! We will definately be back. 

Classic Kiwi Bach - basic, fun, fabulous views

 Our first experience of a bach! We loved it, simple but functional and had everything we need. The location is terrific, lovely little 'secret hideaway' so close to Whanganui. The black sand beach is pretty spectacular, great place to watch the sunset. If you have kids, you need to take them to the playground here, it's amazing! We had a great stay, thanks. 

Ponga Lodge in Hahei

 Lovely views and sounds of the birds make this a great spot to explore the area or just a get away for a couple. Fabulous to view part of the racing at Leadfoot from the deck on the days we were not attending! Thanks & we will be back should we venture to Hahei again.
