Gary and Marie at Leigh by the Sea

 Amazing hosts. Modern amenities. Enjoyable stay. 

Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This is a property with some wow factor, in an incredibly quiet location with stunning views. A real pleasure to stay here, and the ideal location for some R&R. Property owner was a friendly fella to deal with too.

Stunning views on 7 acres above Leigh Harbour

 Lovely little cottage with beautiful views. Short walking distance to Leigh Sawmill cafe and the harbour. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and would stay here again.

 Location, setting and views superb 

Clifftop ocean-front beach house

 We enjoyed our stay. So much natural light and space for everyone to have their own chill out zones. Tidy and comfortable and suited our needs. Ideal for families or a group of friends. The pictures are an accurate portrayal of the house. 10 minute drive to Goat Island for a day of snorkelling and discovery. 15 minute drive to Matakana cafes and great coffee. 20 minute drive to Warkworth for groceries. NOTE: Bond is additional cost to consider, take more towels, conserve water as tank supply. 

Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This property was the perfect location to end our holidays. We loved the open plan which opened out onto the huge deck, some great art pieces and furniture which gives the house a very cool vibe. A great location if you're looking to get away from the city and escape to a secluded spot with nothing but land and seas around you. Bonus is that it's only over an hours drive to get to. Looking forward to coming back!
