Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 When looking for a house to rent, we had one simple brief-to find the best rental house in the North Island that sleeps 15 people. I scoured every rental, across every site, and Oke Beach House was the cream that rose to the top. We had very high expectations before arrival, and they were, without fail, exceeded. The house is fully equipped to the highest standard,and setting is mind blowing. I unreservedly recommend this house, and have no doubt a number of those who stayed will return 

Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 Incredible place! We chose it for our wedding and all our guests loved it. 15 of us slept there, it was comfortable, immaculate, beautiful and roomy. The location is stunning with amazing views of the sea from almost everywhere in the house! Quick and easy access to 2 different and beautiful beaches. Very modern equipment, (made it really easy for our cater) with everything you need. Definitely the perfect choice for a small wedding like ours.
