Awakino River Lodge - Coastal Romance - Historic

 Very cozy feel about such a large space, the house delivered relaxation the moment we walked in the door 

Sunny, sheltered, spacious, 50 metres to the beach

 Lovely property in excellent location. 


 Very comfortable house with amazing views. 


 Great house to relax in and enjoyed every moment of our stay. House has everything you need to ensure a great holiday. The outside environment is fantastic, multiple places to sit and read a book, look at the view and while away the hours. Beds are comfortable, very important when on holiday. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Especially loved the outside bath.

 A lovely Bach. The one bedroom is a great size for a small family. It was immaculately clean and is a 3 minute stroll to the beach. It is well stocked with all the things you need, and the green chair is super comfy (we had to be fair and take turns in it). I highly recommend this lovely little Bach. 

Luxury Tuscan Beach Home Whangamata
