Milnthorpe Cottage -Para Para -Golden Bay

 Beautiful spot - we love Milnthorpe 

Golden Bay Seaside Paradise

 Great location and the owner was extremely helpful 

Kakariki Bach by the beach

 The location was great, a stone's throw from a very nice beach, quiet waters for a swim. A spacious room and two decks were really good. We were quite happy staying in the bach. 

Beach End Sunrise Cottage

 It is a proper old school bach in a magnificent location with everything you need around the property. We loved it! 

Milnthorpe Cottage -Para Para -Golden Bay

 Brilliant view over ever-changing estuary and river mouth, surrounded by birds and bush. Nice simple home but with enough mod cons to make it simple to walk in and relax. 

Sea views, Forest Walks, Peace & Tranquility

 Loved watching the tide from the comfort of the porch, and the ease of beach access when we wanted to swim/paddle.
