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.

The Black Blonde Bach

 In a word, bliss. I am still feeling aglow after staying at this amazing bach. The decor was gorgeous and the bach itself was just so well stocked. We didn't want for anything. We also loved the outdoor spaces at the bach - including both the deck and covered patio. The location of the bach was the perfect jumping off point for many of the region's lovely beaches and Whitianga's wharf is simply beautiful with many yummy cafes nearby, including the French Fig and Cafe Nina. 

Fisherman's Rest- in magnificent Mercury Bay.

 Nice quiet location. Very clean & tidy and everything is available. We call it perfect place at very reasonable price.
