Courtyard Retreat - Cross the road onto the beach

 Ideal location for a busy couple who love a busy lifestyle and want to get away to relax. Everything was thought of including the small things like coffee and milk. The pictures perfectly represent the batch which was extremely neat and tidy. 

Superb modern beach apartment with stunning views.

 It was spotless clean, literally spotless. Supplied of everything you could need to be self sufficient even during the host absence, and vith a breathtaking view. Comfortable and well appointed. 10 minutes walk and you are on the beach. 20 minutes and you are in a surfer's paradise beach. 

Courtyard Retreat - Cross the road onto the beach

 We enjoyed being so close to the beach and the property had all we needed for our short stay.

Ahipara Ocean & Sunset views

 Lovely house, fabulous views, so lovely to lie in bed at night and hear the sea. This was the ideal place for us to stay while attending a Whanau birthday celebration. 

Courtyard Retreat - Cross the road onto the beach

 Bach was clean and well equipped for our short stay and convenient to visit friends in the area. Appreciated :) 

Ahipara Ocean & Sunset views

 A great bach in a beautiful position. Comfortable beds, very clean and suitable to entertain extras who may visit for a meal etc. Fantastic views and short walk down to the beach. Would return if up that way.
