Large Beachfront Home - Beach Break Rototai

 This property is very private and has expansive living areas However one bedroom in an open area would have been better if the single beds were in this area affording a couple more privacy in the left had room where the single beds were. One couple had to walk through the sleeping space of another couple. Not desirable. 

Paturau Beach paradise

 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house had everything we needed (and more) and there was lots to keep us exercised and entertained (and more). This is truly a very special part of Aotearoa 

Contemporary, cool & fun by the beach

 Close to beach.Great location would stay again next time if available 

Excellent Modern Family Home -4 Bed/2Bath/Sleeps9

 Wonderful home, highly recommend. 

Kaiteriteri Holiday House

 The property was just amazing. We stayed for 6 nights and had the best beach holiday. The house was very neat and tidy ready for our arrival. Ample parking and huge space inside the house for our young family. The kids really loved the bunk room and all the toys and books. They especially liked having their own TV. The house has all the mod cons you'd need for a relaxing holiday and beautiful views. A short walk to the most serene beaches of which the main beach was just superb for the kids :)
