Superb beachside house, spot the surf rolling in..

 Location was close to everything and there was plenty Of room 

Sand Castles - Mount Maunganui Holiday Home

 The house and location are amazing and it is a great place to stay. However, there needs to be a lot more crockery and cutlery - we invited friends for a BBQ but had to ask them to bring their own plates, knives and forks which was awkward. Also had to run the dishwasher all the time due to the lack of crockery and cutlery. 

Modern Beach House- close to beach & cafe

 The property was fantastic for our extended family. We had 7 people stay in the house from early twenties to our gran at 90. The location was brilliant with the dairy, takeaways, cafe and beach just steps away from the house. the deck area was well used with bbq handy to kitchen. Plenty of space for us all to spread out and relax. We walked the beach to the Mount shops and main beach, takes about an hour. The house is clean and tidy with everything you need for a short stay. We will be back
