Auckland Beachfront Retreat

 We loved our holiday so much that we booked another night! Thankfully there were no guests booked in that day. The location is perfect, with beach access to the harbour where the children could play safely. We were able to relax. The house itself is fantastic, spacious and comfortable. It is VERY well equipped and the best bit was being able to enter / exit easily with the beds and cleaning being taken care of. Many thanks, we will be back every year while it is being used as a holiday house.

 loved the privacy, walk down to the beach, plenty of room to spread out.
