Nahla's Retreat - pet-and child-friendly

 Our family of four had a fantastic stay. Bach and facilities were of a very good standard, clean & tidy. Location to the beach was only a 5 min walk - great with little ones. Would definitely recommend and will look to stay again in the future. Thanks

Whangamata kiwi bach on full site

 Good Bach, kids loved the outside garage and games room. Worked well for us. 

Whangamata kiwi bach on full site

 The bach was awesome - tidy, modern, comfortable, all with the kiwi bach charm. Outdoor shower is brilliant, the section is huge, and it's in walking to distance to everything you need :) Would recommend and hope to return next summer. 

Clermont - Available New Year

 We had a great stay at Fayzee's bach in Whitianga. It was perfect for what we required. The only thing I would warn others about is the steep driveway which could be an issue for those with low cars. Was fine for us though. Thanks for offering a friendly and affordable place to stay :)
