Water's Edge

 We loved the location. It felt as though we were the only people in the Bay, so quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of room for the children to play, and having the dinghy and kayaks was an added bonus. When the tide was out nearby Martins Bay is an excellent safe beach, and there are walks for those who like to take some exercise. The house itself is excellent for family get togethers, but we did feel the Cleaner could have been a bit more thorough.

 We take regular trips to the Waters Edge bach and love it every time! The location is stunning and the house is warm and accommodating. Highly recommended! 

Water's Edge

 Our family had a fantastic time at this great Kiwi bach. It is in a fantastic location right by the water with it's own jetty. I had my boat at this property and launched at Scotts landing and could tie up at the jetty at high tide. It worked out great for picking the family up to go fishing. There is also plenty to do in the surrounding area. The bach has a modern kitchen and a great deck to relax and watch the sunset. We recommend this bach and will be booking again another time.

 We enjoyed our holiday at Mahurangi very much. The setting is beautiful and the bach is charming ,with fabulous views of the harbour. Mahurangi offers walking, fishing and swimming, so it's a great place for a family holiday. 

Water's Edge

 The location of this typical Kiwi bach is fabulous, with great views over the harbour and lots of birds and privacy. The free wifi more than compensated for the lack of a TV. We will definitely rent this bach again.
