Beach Front on the Reserve Upper unit

 Awesome place, so relaxing which was just what we needed. Nice sheltered bay. A couple of kyaks in the garage would be great. Would definitely use again.

Secluded Bach in Private Bay

 Great stay, beautiful location. Sound of bellbirds in the morning, easy boat launch from the beach. Will definitely be back! Thanks 

Beach Front on the Reserve Upper unit

 Great apartment, in a very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view. Apartment was very modern and comfortable, I would highly recommend 

2014 Gold Piwa Best Hospitality: Wyuna Magic

 Spacious batch in great location with amazing views over the bay. 


 Property pros: well-presented. Great spa. Not as far down as the 309 as feared! Close to Waiau Falls and actually a few things within walking distance. Very airy. Plenty of cutlery and kitchen gear. Driveway is a challenge, but so is the rest of the area driving-wise.

Poppy Apartments, 2 apartments with stunning views

 This property is amazing, unparalleled views, beautiful rooms, its just a pity there was so much rain from the cyclone! If I were to come back to Auckland I would definitely stay at this property again. LOVELY.
