Emerald Cottage Papamoa Beach NZ

 Close to the beach / spacious - perfect for all the family !! 

Peaceful Comfy Farm Cottage Handy Town & Action

 Tranquil Trees is a very tidy, clean and well stocked bach. The owners are very welcoming and happy to chat and share about the local area, farm, stream( with trout), picnic area. We would highly recommend this bach to anyone looking for a quiet, restful location. 

Mount Maunganui Apartment

 Great property in a perfect location! 

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. 

Mount Maunganui Apartment

 We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was clean, spacious and well equipped - kids loved the pool and we loved the very central location, right in the hub of Mt Maunganui and an easy walk to all the attractions - beach, hot pools and restaurants - and also tucked away in a quiet side of the apartment complex which was perfect for relaxing. 

Waiteti Stream Edge with Boat Jetty

 Our second stay at this property, lot's of space for my family, peaceful, has all the amenities we need and isn't costly.
