Four Seasons in one Day

 A wonderful quiet location, handy to Oneroa. I loved all the personal touches that the owner has put into the accomadation and the artistic flare is fantastic. Nice tidy place with full kitchen. 

Sun, Sea, Sand and Surf with super views

 Great location, views on very nice beach with access to the shops. Very tidy and very homely. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms is a bit misleading as up stairs the two bedrooms had a toilet each and shared a shower with no additional doors for privacy. I feel the website could make this a bit clearer. Please also note that the building site to the right and behind did make access a little disruptive. Power cable from pump to house was a surprise too. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. 

Sunny, peaceful cottage

 Lovely stay at the tidy and cosy house. Friendly and helpful owners made it a very pleasant stay. 

Kereru Cottage, tranquil setting, close to beach

 We really love this place. Comfortable and beautiful as ever. Quiet and private. Lovely natural light and gorgeous views. 

Four Seasons in one Day

HERONS LANDING - WATERFRONT
