Lazy Daze ~ Stunning Estuary Location

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

~ Frog's Bach ~  Kennedy Bay Beach

 This is such a wonderful place to stay. It was our second time at Frog's bach and we had a marvellous holiday. 

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 

Paradise in Whitianga

 Cosy and pleasant place to live in. Reflects description on bach accurately.
