Stunning 180 degree sea views

 The property was very clean and had everything we needed. All the kitchen stuff was as good as new and all that is required. The beds were comfortable, which is almost never the case when renting. Had loads of games and movies to keep us entertained at night or when wet. The location was amazing as far as the views go, I mean it, AMAZING! It is very close to the beach, but you need to be fit to a degree to make it up the driveway, it is very steep, we took the car down when needed. 

Best of Both Worlds - situated close to beaches

 Having wifi available meant it was very easy to plan our days, based on weather, low-tides, distances etc. Plenty of space in a nice quiet location. Thanks 

The Green Bach - Ocean front beach house

 We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is absolutely fabulous, very peaceful, and with the beach right out in front. The walkways in the bush just behind Rings Beach were a bonus, and the cool little surfie pizza restaurant in Kuaotunu were great. We brought our 6m boat out and launched it with a 2wheel drive car from the ramp down the road no worries at all; the picnic spots and fishing around Mercury island were tops. We extended our stay because we couldn't bear to leave. 

Best of Both Worlds - situated close to beaches

 Awesome location, loved having the farmlet to explore with our 3 year old, who loved throwing rocks into the stream. Nice nights by the outside fire and outdoor living is fantastic here. Serviceable and clean indoors, all you need for a break away. We would stay here again :) 

Katuna Lodge  stunning views of Mercury Is.

 Absolutely loved it. Wish we could have stayed longer. Great value for money, stunning views, friendly hosts. Highly recommended. Cant wait to go back. 

Lazy Days - modern family friendly holiday home

 A very cozy and spacious place. Location is superb! Right across the beach! It was a family friendly house and a good place to bond! I definitely recommend this place and will surely be back!
