 We had an amazing time at Castaway Cottage. Fantastic location. Cottage was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Diane (the manager) was extremely organised and friendly, and very helpful. Would love to come back here again

Piece of Paradise in Oamaru Bay, Coromandel

 We love this place. Stayed two years in a row and have booked the third. Mentioned going somewhere else next year for a change, and the kids were horrified.

 This was honestly one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed! Such a paradise! If your looking for somewhere private to relax then look no further and right from the start the whole process was easy!
