The Green Bach - Ocean front beach house

 Stunning location, beautiful beach, perfect weather, so quiet and peaceful. The quintessential Kiwi Bach experience. 

Delightful Beach Bach Retreat

 Comfortable, clean, kiwi bach in fantastic location. We will return. 

Lovely studio in magnificent native bush setting

 Cool and quiet accommodation in the bush with plenty of excellent beaches nearby. Local Luke's Kitchen has excellent food and drinks (check it out on FB). Accommodation very comfortable and private. A wonderful getaway! Stairs could be a bit tricky if you had any physical limitations. 

*A Couple's Cottage Retreat at the Beach!*

 This house was just fabulous. Really lovely, comfortable place with a true 'home' feeling and everything you might need for your stay. The gardens were beautiful, peaceful and private. Owner was very easy to deal with, very friendly and communicative. All details were provided in a timely manner and any instructions were super easy to follow. Would rent this place again in a heartbeat. You won't be disappointed. 

The Green Bach - Ocean front beach house

 Location is absolutely awesome, beach front with million dollar views, the beach itself is not the best for swimming but both beaches ither side are. House is well setup with all you need to enjoy the kiwi bach experience. My only one issue is the house did not have any clothes washing facilities so it's back to hand washing or taking it to a laundry in town (15 mins drive) Would definitely consider staying again we had a fantastic time 

 Haven in Paradise, peaceful, luxurious, clean

 Pohutukawa Lodge was the perfect place for a family of four with 2 children and grandparents to stay. The house was spacious and had everything you needed - a big rumpus downstairs for the kids (and pool table!), awesome decks both upstairs and downstairs, fantastic lawn, great kitchen, extensive DVD collection and only 2 mins walk to beach. The owner was great to deal with - thank you for sharing your beach house with us. Our only mistake was booking just for the one week!
