The Shipping Room at sunny Kina Beach Road

 The location is ideal in a quiet attractive area with the owners' alpacas for company in the field below. The Shipping Room is very smart, modern, and comfortable, and the garden has been thoughtfully arranged. A great place to stay and we wish we had been able to stay longer. 

Stunning beach house with views of Farewell Spit

 Although the property is a little dated internally, which can be expected given that it is a family bach, it more than makes up for it due to its fantastic location right above the beach. It also has everything you need. Can't wait to stay there again and its really good that the owner rents it out. Top place! 

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
