Tuis at Matapouri - Matapouri Bach

 Great house, idea for large families. The house was neat, tidy & very clean. Will come back again 

Rustic Retreat - Beachfront Paradise

 Love the name - Rustic Retreat is exactly right. 

Te Kaha stunning ocean-front beach house

 Stunning location and plenty of room for everyone. Definitely recommend! 

5 Bedroom Beachfront Paradise...!!!

 Our family really enjoyed the Pukehina Paradise bach. It had good size rooms, was very tidy, and had good storage. It also included a few board games and outside bean bags. The only suggestion I would make would be to have more shade on the deck for the hottest part of the day. The beachfront location was superb and we spent the week on the beach, swimming, surfing, fishing and having bonfires. Also would recommend the estuary and trips out to Maketu and Ohope. 

Rustic Retreat - Beachfront Paradise

 We are award winning hoteliers from Rotorua, Di was worried it might be to Rustic for us, but to the contrary! we simply loved this bach and already are talking about next year. It takes two families really comfortably, and we considered smuggling Muschka the cat home with us. I've also never seen a bach so clean! Di works very hard to keep it looking spotless. Well priced, great location. 10/10. 

Te Kaha stunning ocean-front beach house

 Wonderful bach in a perfect spot. It is very well equipped, and the front lawn is just perfect for the kids to run about on whilst the adults enjoy a drink and the view from the deck. The beds were very comfortable, and everything was in great condition. Thanks again.
