Hobbit House - Pauanui Bach

 Great location and had everything we needed. 

Glamping at Matarangi

 We enjoyed it. It was peaceful and quiet. Walk to the beach is not so far away. I would recommend to anyone who would enjoy glamping. 

couple's getaway and pet holiday spot

 Lovely dog-friendly unit in a great location very close to the beach. Much better than the pictures show, everything needed is there. Great deck with BBQ and table for evening dinners. Friendly hosts who are very helpful with information about where to take our canine friend. We will be back! 

1 Bedroom Whitianga cosy cottage

 massive yard for kids and dogs. 2 minutes walk to the beach and 5 minutes drive to town. everything you could want in a beach bach. 

Bohemia  at the Black Jack

 Isabel's house is a work of art. Sitting on the gentle hill behind the village the garden is a picture with numerous fruit trees, a vege garden, and flowers. The verandah, framed by a grape vine and fig tree and the glimpses of the beach, with the mountains of the Corimandel behind is like being on the Mediterranean. Nearby beaches, a few minutes drive over the hill are divine. A 2 minute walk to the general store and Luke's Cafe for coffee, wifi and great food. A perfect single or couples house
