Stunning views of Mill Bay

 The only reason that we do not give the property 5* is because it may give the wrong impression of the type of accommodation as it it not a whizz bang glass and stainless steel property ( nor would we have booked it if it was). However, for for what we want from holiday accommodation it is everything we could wish for in a beautiful location. Would thoroughly recommend. 

Absolutely lovely beach front accommodation

 Fantastic spot with wonderful water views of the bay. Very helpful owners and an onsite caretaker who make your stay super easy and relaxing. The kayaks provided were great and we used them most days to explore the bays or just have a late afternoon paddle looking at the boats and the birds.Also had a fun bike ride and some lovely walks. Would love to return. 

The Hidden Tui beach bach

 Old, but tidy and comfortable bach. We stayed in a tent on the grounds with all the mod cons in close proximity; glamping at it's best! Beautiful views from the bach. Short track to the beach; appreciated the efforts to make the track as safe as possible. A bit steep and slippery for young children and when carrying lots of gear. Appreciated the use of the row boat and that life jackets for old and young were provided. Great swimming beaches close by. Worth driving to Rangiputa and Golden Bay. 

The Little Cottage...Short walk to beach

 Lovely little Cottage in a fantastic location. Can't wait to go back!! 

The Little Cottage...Short walk to beach

 Remote, private, tranquil and perfectly located to beach and local iconic spots of NZ. Only short drive to town for supplies if needed.
