Lake Escape at Cooks

 We had a fantastic stay in this amazing home - all 3 families were very comfortable and really enjoyed all the spaces this place offers! Great indoor/outdoor flow and easily handles 3 families with children! Would highly recommend this place to anybody and hope to return here this time next year!! Thanks a lot Shelley. 

Bach 125 -All the Modern Conveniences at the beach

 A wonderful quiet location, bach & facilities fantastic, brilliant for families with plenty of space for everyone. Can't wait to stay again. 

Stunning views -beach front

 You walk straight across the road to the beach and the surf club for a swim, you then wander back and have either an indoor or outside shower, go upstairs and sit out on the deck and take in the view. In short, wonderful! The place has been newly renovated,there's lots of room for everyone (at times there were 12 of us),it has a great kitchen and there's a games area downstairs with a bar. We all had a great time here and would certainly stay there again 

Bach 125 -All the Modern Conveniences at the beach

 This property is in the newer part of Matarangi subdivision, very suitable for children. For us, it was drive to the beach (with all the kids gear, boards etc) but you could walk there in about 10min. Matarangi Beach is beautiful white sand, with good wave action for kids and adults on boogie boards. Bonus is it is only a 2min walk to the Harbour which is like a water playground for those with boats, jetskis, kayaks etc. Heaps of space and very modern - great for all the family! 


 A beautiful and well planned house that you can make your home while there. Near to the beach and town. Park your car and walk where you would like to go. 

Sea views, 2 levels, elevated deck, 6 bedrooms,

 Well equiped, large, comfortable house in a great location. We had a fabulous holiday there!
