Beautiful sunny Waiotahi Drifts

 Lovely spacious house in a quiet area. Well equiped and clean and tidy. Very convenient for the lovely sandy beach. 

Beach front plus harbour edge

 Thsi is a fabulous simple but very spacious "Kiwi bach" just behind the dunes at Ohiwa Harbour. We had a fantastic time there swimming, fishing, hanging out in the big garden and kayaking. Thank you so much for letting us stay at this remote and relaxing gem of a place. 

5 Bedroom Beachfront Paradise...!!!

 Our family really enjoyed the Pukehina Paradise bach. It had good size rooms, was very tidy, and had good storage. It also included a few board games and outside bean bags. The only suggestion I would make would be to have more shade on the deck for the hottest part of the day. The beachfront location was superb and we spent the week on the beach, swimming, surfing, fishing and having bonfires. Also would recommend the estuary and trips out to Maketu and Ohope. 

Rotoiti Lakeside Cottage

 Great location. We liked the 5 knot zone in the bay for safety for the children. Good depth around the jetty for the boat and for children to jump off. Both baches where clean on arrival and well equipped. Spacious fridges. We loved the coffee machine. Okere FAlls Store for an afternoon beer just a 12 minute paddle. Sunset views from the deck were amazing. A little bit of paradise on our doorstep. Highly recommend.
