 Great bach, Modern, clean and very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay with our dog. Enclosed garden was ace for the dog to run around in. House does not smell 'doggy'!! Neighbours friendly too.

 Spacious, comfortable and affordable apartment. Easy walking distance to beach/general store (hill on return walk). Apartment is based on lower level of main house and so you can expect some movement noises from above level; ear plugs are an easy fix so don't be put off! 

Coast Retreat Muriwai Beach

 Coast Retreat was a delightful bach that served our needs perfectly. It is perfectly placed to enjoy all that Muriwai has to offer. The beds were very comfortable and all the details had been thought about by the owners. I would definitely recommend this bach to anyone.
