La Grange Eco-cabin by the sea: totally private

 You have to like off the beaten track...wake up to birds. Awesome cabin. Torn between sight seeing and just staying put. Enjoyed the kayak at our disposable. Great meals at local Games Fishing Club.

COUNTRY CHARM: Tranquil self-catering cottage

 Great little place to get away with our little pooch :) not too big and not too small, just right. On arrival Pip had made some muffins for us, which were yummy. There was also a folder of places to eat, supermarket not far about 10kms or so. Beaches weren't far either. 

Gypsy River Camping

 Well supplied with yummy home baking and other food! 

Life On The Lake Where will you be?

 Fantastic to have close access to the lake. Wonderful view from the deck. Thank you for the use of the kayaks. A quick walk to Okere Falls + Shop, rafting and kayaking. House was clean and provided everything we needed. Great stay thank you.

Himalayan Cottage , Romantic & Peaceful

 Would definitely recommend this cottage for a couple wanting somewhere quiet and peaceful. Cottage was very clean and had everything you might need. In walking distance of a lovely French Restaurant and Bennetts Chocolates which has a lovely café. Estuary at end of road. Good when tide is in. Great market on Saturday morning. Short drive to Surf beach at Mangawhai Heads.
