Fine accommodation in a stately coastal setting

 Great three days. Amazing hosts, lovely setting, fabulous breakfasts. Would love to return. 

Self catering accommodation sleeps up to 10 .

 The property is located in Poike which is very near to papamoa and mounganui. The house was big, very neat and clean and well maintained. I would recommend this place to people travelling that side.

 The property is amazing, we came here for my birthday weekend with a group of 14. Its so well set up for a large group with the barn for socializing/eating/drinking, huge deck overlooking the water, main house then cabins & sleep out. Having the sleeping areas away from the social areas is perfect and we absolutely loved it! Will definitely be back

 Fantastic place! Perfect for a large group. Couldn't have asked for a better place, even loved the goat manning the driveway!
