Seaspray Beach Villa - beachfront holiday home

 Property is very well taken care of and has absolutely everything. Location is good but transport recommended to visit town and Muri beach. 

Sands Beachfront Villas

 Great place in a great location, very clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend!!! 

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

 Well presented and left no questions. Location a big factor for us, so photos of deck and lagoon enticing...
