Holiday Cottage

 Very well set up for family use. Close to the beach, with a gorgeous garden and a lovely view from the deck. A bonus to be able to walk out the door, down one hill, along the beach and up another wee hill to walk some very manageable tracks at Scandrett Regional Park. 

Holiday Cottage

 There were lovely views, a spacious deck and living areas, an easy walk through reserve to the beach. Absolutely ideal.

Martins Bay - Kiwiana Bach on the Beach

 What a wonderful experience, right on the beach, you couldn't ask for a nicer location. The bach was tidy and well appointed. We would highly recommend this back to others and would certainly look to rent this again in the future. Just a little note, I wasn't sure if you were aware or not but it looked a bit like the element inside the oven was falling down. Thank you we had a lovely time.
