Matarangi Beach 'Location' 'Location'

 Loved Village Green, was everything we wanted for our family holiday. Place is in a great location and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. We will be booking Village Green again. :) 

Lazy Daze ~ Stunning Estuary Location

 As always a great stay at Pete's in Kennedy Bay. Perfect weather, perfect setting and fish were biting! 

2013 Gold Piwa Best Setting ~ Castaway Cottage

 Its position and sense of isolation. It was so peaceful. 

The Reserve Whitianga - Near to Town and Sea

 Relatively basic but very clean and well equipped bach. Lovely outlook. We enjoyed using the BBQ and sitting on the deck with the views. Perfect for a short walk to The Lost Springs or Whitianga beach and then perfectly located for a short drive to the other attractions. Thank you 

Directly opposite sandy Tararu Bay.

 Nice close hideaway for a Coromandel stay.
