Executive Style Beach House

 The bach is gorgeous!!! It can easily accommodate a big group but in a quiet neighbourhood so not a place to party. Everyone loved it and the bar has been set very high for the rest of our travels. 

Fantastic beachfront

 Lovely place to stay. Has everything you need and cool views. Will come again. 

Little Black Love Shack at Waitarere

 We had a wonderful time and would love to be back some other time. The beach is very close and the bach has a lovely interior, felt home right away! 

Super sunny getaway surrounded by decks

 Pams Place was perfect for our little weekend getaway. So well equipped with everything to make it easy, fenced section, and easy access to parks, beaches and places of interest for our little family. It was a joy to stay. Thank you so much for having it available for our holiday. 

Magical Beachfront Kiwi Bach
