The Life of Rielly at Oakura Beach

 Rielly's Retreat worked really well for us. We were three couples and one child, plus day visitors who came to catch up with us. The beds are very comfortable, the layout of the house is excellent for a group, and we were able to seat 10 around the table for a special meal. Having an outdoor barbecue is a great help when on holiday! The enclosed grounds, playhouse and toys were appreciated by the little ones. We appreciated the easy walk to the beach, and the quiet, peaceful surroundings. 

Wonderful 4 Bedroom House in Brooklands

 The location was ideal for our purposes, handy to places of interest and easy access to out of town destinations. The house offered many extras, was very well furnished, clean and comfortable. We hope to plan another holiday in New Plymouth!

Rural Private Cottage in Oakura Village

 What a magical, beautiful spot. Waking to the birdsong in a big comfy bed and spending the days reading on the veranda - a great way to get away from it all. The house is stylishly decorated with great care and there is just so much to do. Just a short walk to the beach, a lake onsite. We celebrated my boyfriend's 40th birthday in true style and came home relaxed and refreshed. 

Rural Private Cottage in Oakura Village

 Beautifully decorated, peaceful location, close to Oakura yet it feels like you are away from everything in a tranquil oasis. We have 3 kids (youngest nearly 9) and they loved being able to go off to the waterhole together. We loved having a g&t while they were gone! 

Wonderful 4 Bedroom House in Brooklands

 Thanks for an awesome place to stay. Absolutely spotless. Huge house with an extra lounge upstairs. Good beds and only about 6 minutes in the car from the centre of town and the water. Great to deal with and a lovely lady who makes sure all is okay when you are there. Well recommended and yet again great service and truthful info from bookabach.
