Casa Rosada, Aroa Beach - sea, sand and sunsets!!

 Central and sheltered. Great clean accommodation. Good food n entertainment options close by at resorts and other hotels. No pressure from other guests as you can relax in private. Great deck and directly across road from stunning beaches n diving. Romantic at sunset, and close to most good things on the island following a short scooter journey. Aroa beachside inn serves good sunset cocktails, and oceans restaurant at the Crown beach resort was top class. 

Stunning Pacific Coast house - Turangi

 The photos only do half the justice to what is an amazing property, an awesome destination for 2 couples looking to have a break.. Definitely go during Whale season as the deck lets you sit, sip and whale watch.. 

Beachfront, fantastic swimming and snorkelling

 Loved the big open plan kitchen, dining and living/sleeping. Location was fantastic and the beach was great for swimming.
