Compact and private with covered deck and lawn.

 Excellent location, clean and comfortable. 

Family Friendly Bach

 The location was fantastic for a family as the lake across the road was ideal for kids fishing , cycling around and kayaking. The beach was a short walk and the layout of the bach worked really well for young children. The all day sun was wonderful and a well situated dining table and big deck enhanced the experience. The flat fully fenced section was great for the kids and the dog. Lots of backyard cricket and ball games!

Quiet private Cooks Beach property

 Absolutely loved this place. It suited our family perfectly, both the house, the fantastic grounds, and the location. Colette was great to deal with, friendly, and helpful - I felt as though I knew her. Would definitely like to stay again, lots of times. 

Gorgeous Cooks and Mercury Bay view beach house.

 Loved our stay, loved the home, loved the location. We had an amazing time and will be back! :) 

Fantastic Beach Front Bach

 It is a fantastic location. Yes it is an older bach, but it was very clean and tidy and we had a wonderful week. There was enough room for everyone (3 generations) and we had a great holiday together. 

Stunning beach and ocean views

 Great bach. Fantastic views. Lovely swimming beach and really close to the ferry to Whitianga. (Queen Bed is actually a Double though).
