Te Maika Beachfront - Ngunguru

 Amazing location on waterfront. Cozy house with a great kitchen and bathroom. Comfortable beds, great dvd selection, nice to have tea and coffee, salt and pepper to use for cooking. Lovely deck right next to the water. 

Classic Bach close to the beach

 The property had all the basic needs you would want in a bach. Was clean and tidy. Very large lawn area would be perfect for extra guests in tents and those summer cricket games. Was easy to find and handy to Tutukaka Coast where we attended a function. Only thing I would mention is the shower water pressure was pretty dismal & it is outside (under cover) which wouldn't be that great in wet weather, but overall it was a great place for our overnight stay and very reasonably priced!

Seahorse Studio Ngunguru/Tutukaka

 I have traveled to 15 different countries and this is one of the best for a studio appartment. Ticks all the boxes and excels in space, comfort, and cooking facilities.
