Tahunanui Beach Holiday House  5 mins to beach

 We really enjoyed the location and the house was well stocked 

Coast Retreat Muriwai Beach

 This is a lovely place to stay. It was in a good location - tennis courts over the road, 5 min walk to the beach. The Coastal Retreat is very comfortable and well presented. We would stay again! 

Brand new Bach on Benn - perfect in every way!

 We loved staying here. We are a family of four (with 2 teenagers), so this place was on the small side for us but still felt spacious enough, and was beautifully fitted out with very comfortable beds and furnishings. We really appreciated that everything was included (linen, towels, cleaning after, etc) so made it very easy to arrive and then leave - a bit like staying in a really nice motel unit. We would definitely stay here again. 

Sun, Sea Views, Spa Pool and 4wd vehicle

 We had a wonderful stay at Whisper Cottage. Beautiful inside and out, view amazing. 

ORCA BEACH WATCH Omapere - Free WiFi - superb view

 Lovely view and a short drive to two wharves for fishing or swimming. 

ORCA BEACH WATCH Omapere - Free WiFi - superb view

 We had a wonderful stay at this bach & loved eating outside on the veranda, admiring the stunning Hokianga views. It was so nice to be just over the road from the beach. The hosts are easygoing and friendly with excellent advice on what to do nearby. We especially liked the rock pools & local Indian food and the kids really appreciated the box of toys in the house! The bach is thoughtfully and thoroughly equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Wish we had stayed longer!
