*Omaha Stunning Beach House*

 Beautiful house to stay in. We used it for a girls weekend away and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Spacious and comfortable with lots to see and do. Little touches of luxury made it the perfect get away! Plenty to see and do in the area, would highly recommend this house and we will be back! 

Fun at the beach for a family (or two!)

 Excellent property for a great break away, just a short amble to the lovely white sands of Omaha Beach. Kewai Road home is perfectly laid out accommodating our three families, including two toddlers, with ease and space to spare. Spotlessly clean, it had all the amenities needed for a very relaxing and fun family get together. Highly recommended :-) 

4 Bedroom Waiheke Bach, 1 Minute Stroll to Water!

 Great location, easy to find and close to the bus route. Perfect size for the group we took. We will have to stay longer next time

Modern beach house close to the sea

 Beautiful location - could hear and see the beach. The home overall is lovely, with a dream kitchen to use. Elizabeth and Gary are hospitable people, they live downstairs but do not invade your privacy at all. Thank you, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 

*Omaha Stunning Beach House*

 The house is beautifully appointed and so well equipped. It provides a warm, welcoming environment. The location is fabulous - close to the beach and the other amenities we used. It was the perfect accommodation for our purposes. 

Quality harbour home in Matakana region

 Beautiful house with beautiful views. Very spacious, clean & delightful! Lovely large bedrooms, all with own bathrooms. We will definitely come and stay again but this time for much longer! Thank you, Kim & Carl
