Pakawau 1960's house right on the beach  - Maarama

 Great bach. Close to beach. Rustic but has everything you need. Loved the quiet beach. It was very peaceful.

Tahunanui Beach Holiday House  5 mins to beach

 We really enjoyed the location and the house was well stocked 

Beach End Hideaway Cottage

 A delightful ,simple ,private bach with stunning , ever changing sea and tidal flats outlook. A gorgeous area to explore.. Wharariki beach with seals, some great potters, a lovely basket weaver, the Aorere for fishing.... The highlight was the oystercatchers and godwits on the beach in front of the bach. 

Magnificient rural views

 Everything ! 

AROHA COTTAGE at Tasmans idyllic Kina Beach

 We stayed at Aroha Cottage for a small week. It is a very beautiful place to stay. Everything you need for a pleasant stay is available. The garden is very beautiful too. If the weather is nice (which in our case it was) it's great to eat outside or just enjoy the sound of the birds and the sea in the background. We definitely recommend this house. But please do us a favour and do not book in a period that we want to come :-) 

Beech Hill Accommodation

 Perfect location, beautiful, modern and clean accommodation, had a fantastic stay and would love to return!
