'Dirt bike patch'

 This rural property.is simple but delightfully comfortable. We found the rural aspect relaxing and even though t is a little isolated from Kawhia the economy of rental is good and it would be a bargain for a family group. 

Step back in time on the Waikato West coast.

 Excellent location. Very tidy with comfortable beds. Has a dishwasher and 2 bathrooms 

Wairoto Cottage - Close to all amenities

 Property very clean & well stocked. It is very central and handy to all amenities. Hoping to book again soon.

 Quaint and charming yet fully equipped. Beautiful location. 

Amazing waterviews, set amongst the kowhai trees

 Excellent views of the harbour, house is tidy and has everything you need. Lovely place to getaway from the maddening crowd!
