Superb family home, top location, sea views

 The property was fantastic - neat and tidy, with heaps of space and in a great location. It had everything we needed. 

Superb family home, top location, sea views

 Incredible property. Well equipped, perfect bach for a family get away, has everything you need. Right across from the beach, tennis courts and park all in the area. Kids loved it, so did the adults! Would highly recommend and we would definitely book again. 

A Lovely Big Beach House!

 The two minute walk to the beach is such a positive about this property. Even the younger children could safely walk to the beach by themselves. The house is big, lots of room options and the kitchen is well stocked. This was our second stay and we really liked it again and are planning to come back. 

Superb family home, top location, sea views

 Property location was fantastic!! Very close to the beach and handy to the shops in Matarangi. We had 11 of us (5 kids - 6 adults) staying and enjoyed beach time and relaxing on the balcony in the mornings and evenings. 

Superb family home, top location, sea views

 House was awesome, great location 150m from the beach with no roads to cross making it perfect for the kids. The property is two independent units (one upstairs and one downstairs) and whilst there is no internal access between the two there are two sets of external stairs which make it easy to access them both. Property was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for a great few days with the family. Thanks!

 Family friendly with lots of space. Great location, beautiful views out to the beach and easy walk to both the beach and shops.
