The Copper Nikau - All you could want and more.

 Beautiful well kept property with stunning views of Bream Bay. The kids loved the pool, the table tennis table and the trampoline. Us Parents loved the seclusion of the master bedroom. 

Secluded Waterfront Lodge

 Fantastic venue, large spacious house and outdoor area. Sean, owner was very helpful and we had brilliant weather which made it a perfect stay. Thanks so much. 

Koutu Retreat - Opononi Stunning New Beach House

 Amazing holiday home - everything u need, very comfortable and spacious, great indoor and outdoor space, great location with fabulous beach, sand dunes, waterfall walk, Tane mahuta, boulders and more nearby! 

Pvt headland / beach, sleeps 15, magnificent views

 We wanted a holiday home suitable for a family group of varying ages. Kotari Point was perfect. The house is very well equipped and comfortable, with board games and books for the evenings, and the level front lawn is great for cricket, petanque, badminton etc (bats etc supplied). There are lots of beaches and walks in the area, and a local store for emergency supplies or takeaways. Recommended! 

Mini Whananaki Beach House

 WE had a great extended family holiday at Miniwhanaki. The two houses accommodated all 14 of the family including my elderly mother very well. The location was great for us - across the road from the estuary which the younger children enjoyed learning to kayak and paddle board in and the boat ramp is close by too. We also enjoyed the coastal beaches for body surfing which are a short drive away. Really relaxing beach holiday. We are looking forward to returning next year hopefully. 

Stunning views from Dolphin Bay's first home

 We loved this property, beautifully renovated with great facilities including two showers (excellent pressure) and two toilets, spectacular views from every room make this property feel like luxury accommodation. The cabin which can be booked as well is equally well appointed. We loved the area, we kept our boat in a berth at the marina, snorkeling in Dolphin Bay right in front of the house and visiting Matapouri, the Poor Knights and lunch at the Marina. Very keen to book another holiday.
