Avana Waterfront Apartments- 3 bedroom apartment

 kayaking on the lake was beautiful. the scenery was stunning. close to muri beach. host super accommodating. 

Sands Beachfront Villas

 The property was absolute beachfront, very private with stunning views of the lagoon which was fringed by palm trees and a fabulous sandy beach. We loved the simple touches like the welcome breakfast essentials (fruit, bread, butter, jam, tea, coffee and sugar). Thanks to Rongo for waiting with us until our return airport transfer arrived (late). The 2 bedrooms without aircon were stifling at times so we would have appreciated the additional fans which were requested at time of booking. 

Sands Beachfront Villas
