Muriwai surf escape sunny with alfresco dining!

 Very tastefully furnished and decorated, spacious and cozy with an amazing deck on which we enjoyed the scorching days relaxing before walking to the gorgeous beach to enjoy magnificent sunsets. Top accommodation, highly recommended.

 This is a lovely place to stay. It was in a good location - tennis courts over the road, 5 min walk to the beach. The Coastal Retreat is very comfortable and well presented. We would stay again!
