Whangarei Accommodation 4 Brm House

 Great place - great to stay at ! 

Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 The house is well designed, and pure luxury, but robust so I didn't feel as if we were walking on egg shells all weekend. Everything was set out for us and everything worked. The location is fabulous. 

Clifftop family friendly holiday home

 Outstanding views ,clean and spacious, had a family friendly feeling, garden beautiful and very well maintained 

Strawny's Beach House

 A fantastic property in a great location. It was perfect for our large group as there is plenty of room to spread out! We had a toddler with us and the house is really child friendly. We'll definitely be back!
