Tranquil Escape - Waihi Beach Holiday Home

 This was our second stay at the property. We love the quiet location and short walk to beach and playground. The house has all the mod cons we need so is perfect. We will be back next year!

Sand Castles - Mount Maunganui Holiday Home

 The house and location are amazing and it is a great place to stay. However, there needs to be a lot more crockery and cutlery - we invited friends for a BBQ but had to ask them to bring their own plates, knives and forks which was awkward. Also had to run the dishwasher all the time due to the lack of crockery and cutlery. 

Fringe of Heaven - Ohiwa Beach Bach

 What a gem! Beautiful location, private, stunning beach, away from it all but close enough to civilisation when you need it. Property works great for two families, fantastic living area, views to die for, excellent facilities. Can't fault the house, or the people we dealt with. Thank you!
