Views over the Kenepuru Sound beach front access

 Great bach! Easy to use and very tidy! It was pouring with rain so would have been good to have a few more board games :) Thanks for a great time! 

Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Great little Bach up on the hill so it felt like you were in the trees. Wonderful views from every aspect and the bird song was truly lovely. Great relaxing chairs for sitting inside or on the deck for reading or meditating just fantastic! 

PERFECT HOLIDAY!!!!SIMPlY THE BEST!!!WINTER RATES!

 The property is very comfortable and homely. There is plenty of space indoors and outdoors, with a stunning view of the bay. While not everyone's idea of a holiday there is Sky & WIFI to keep the kids entertained after they have spent all day fishing, exploring and swimming The close proximity to Queen Charlotte Track is great, and a must for mountain biking and hiking fans
