 Cracker-Nui is the BEST! It is a beautiful bach with an amazing view of the beach. So relaxing. We had such a lovely weekend, it was such a shame we had to leave!!! The property is lovely. Comfortable and clean with everything you could possibly need! The location is fantastic and it is an easy walk to the beach.

Kakanui - Modern, Sunny Coastal Escape

 Our family really enjoyed the time we spent at this house. It was well presented and equipped with everything that we needed during our stay. Close to the beach one way and views the other way that make you keep looking just in case you missed something! Good communication from the owner before, during and after. Hope to return.
