Nahla's Retreat - pet-and child-friendly

 Our family of four had a fantastic stay. Bach and facilities were of a very good standard, clean & tidy. Location to the beach was only a 5 min walk - great with little ones. Would definitely recommend and will look to stay again in the future. Thanks

Whangapoua Beach Front stunning views

 Had a great few days at this very comfortable bach. Loved the beachfront location, and the sheltered inside deck as Hurricane Pam approached! 

Spacious, Sunny Designer Bach 4 Minutes to Beach

 Issue with the mattresses/beds in the 'bunk' room. It should be made clear that this was not suitable for us more mature adults. TV was only useable for watching videos, which for our cricket crazy brother in law was a bit disappointing (cricket world cup in play). Great location and well equipped, but very limited space for putting clothes, as the available space was taken up with the family bedding etc. so for 6 adults on a long haul holiday meant having to live out of suitcases.

 Great, funky bach that has everything you could possibly need to feel at home while on holiday! Well situated with easy access to the beach and local store. Fantastic spot! 

Modern, comfortable house only steps to the beach!

 Really nice Bach. :-) We had a great Weekend. Perfect, quiet Location...
