Contemporary studio above Little Oneroa Bay

 Ww were collected from the ferry in an awesome vintage car, short ride to location. Really lovely modern studio, easy walking distance to Oneroa centre. Couldn't have been better :-) 

Gypsy River Camping


La Grange Eco-cabin by the sea: totally private

 Whangaroa Harbour is stunning and Le Grange was an idyllic spot to relax and enjoy the setting. The facilities were fantastic and completely self-sufficient. Loved it! 

Stillwater Cottage - Peaceful, romantic, seaside

 Stillwater Cottage is in an absolutely beautiful spot and was so clean and comfortable. Everything we needed and more for a thoroughly relaxing weekend, only a short distance from the city (and hospital with imminent baby arrival!) We loved our weekend, dinghy and fishing gear on hand and watching the changing scenery of the river. The 'host' is a truly lovely person, adding lots of special touches - the property and surrounds are a credit to her. Can't recommend highly enough. Thank you! 

Gypsy River Camping

 Cute, clean, comfortable cabins and Anne and Steve were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again! 

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.
