Gary and Marie at Leigh by the Sea

 Really enjoyed our stay. Marie and Gary are very hospitable and we felt relaxed knowing the property is toddler friendly. Enjoyed getting out on the kayaks and visiting the wonderful beach's nearby. Would happily stay there again. Thanks Gary and Marie!! 

Leigh Lighthouse - Leigh Holiday Home

 This bach is in a good location with great views over the water. It's a short walk to the Leigh shops and a 15-minute walk to the Leigh Sawmill Cafe/Pub. The bach was really clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. It did get quite hot in the bach during the day but closing the curtains to block out the hot sun and using the fans provided made it much better. We'd definitely stay here again.

Gary and Marie at Leigh by the Sea

 Our family (4 families) hired Gary and Marie at Leigh by sea from 23 December - 30 December 2014. The facilities were more than accommodating for our large family and both Gary and Marie were very informative of their expectations for us as guests and were hospitable with all requests we had. The bach is located in a great central spot with ample parking. We could chose to frequent Mathieson's Beach, Matakana, Omaha Beach, Tawharanui or Leigh, Goats Island and Pakiri so many limitless options. T 

Classic charm at Denee family bach

 Authentic kiwi bach. Everything you need and in good working order, clean and tidy. Great location, quiet and close to some lovely beaches and cafes, all a short drive away. Our 5 year old loved it here. Set up of the Bach a bit tricky for our 1-year old, not very toddler proof, so would recommend when the kids our a wee bit older.
