Amazing Views Beach Front access across road

 The most amazing view! Great to wake up in the morning to sunrise over the beach. House was comfortable and had everything you could need. Great accommodation for a larger family and you couldn't get any closer to the beach. Only slight issue was the ants, which were very persistent! 

Cooks Beach Relaxation

 A lovely, new, spacious and well-appointed house in a beautiful location. It was wonderful being so close to the beach, and the house had everything we could possibly have wanted. Excellent value. 

Perfect for a fun family get away

 Was ideal place for us. Nice large section. Liked it more than a house. No washing machine, would have packed differently, if i had thought to check that. But we survived with a trip to laundymat in Whiti! Would stay again.
