Ohingaroa Bay cabin.

 Gorgeous location and really enjoyed spending a day in the Sounds on the dingy and collecting fresh oysters and mussels for dinner. Beautiful! 

Views over the Kenepuru Sound beach front access

 Amazing views, lovely clean house. Very well equipped. Had a great stay. 

Amazing views over the bay and Kenepuru Sound

 It is a awesome, super tidy bach with a big deck with stunning views on the kenepuru sound. Sunny all day! We loved staying there! So lucky we chose for this bach. We would book the same bach again, when we are coming back to the Sounds. Big lounge/kitchen area, 2 showers and toilets. No worries with the driveway, steep, but short. Quite beach within 2 min walk. Totally recommendable!!!
