Charming cottage on the coast

 Great Bach, had everything we needed and great location, so near to fabulous beaches. The setting of the Bach is gorgeous, so peaceful and private and we loved being able to stroll around the grounds. Jeff and Sue were lovely to deal with and made our stay very enjoyable. Would definitely love to come again. 

Tokerau Beach retreat

 basic but beautiful spot to get away from it all caught fish and tuatuas straight out in front of bach needs minor maintenance to doorlocks etc but would return in a heartbeat loved the view from the master bedroom and the recliner in the lounge peaceful spot end of street and beachfront might buy it so be quick ha

Harbour Views, only 30 seconds to the beach!

 Lovely character batch in excellent location with beautiful views. Very well equipped for an enjoyable holiday. 

Peace and Tranquillity

 Very well presented and equipped property. We loved boating on the lake and the children really enjoyed feeding the goats. The location was ideal and is just as described, peaceful, tranquil and perfectly located for touring in the region. Thank you Dot, Steve and Tui (the dog) for a wonderful week. 

Peace and Tranquillity

 The location, the cleanliness, the layout and furnishings. It was a great place to chill out and forget the rest of the world. Really enjoyed our stay. 

Idyllic beach front accommodation

 Superb location right by the waters edge. Beautiful listed building that is very cosy. Caretaker on site is very accommodating and friendly. This is our second visit. We will be back again
