Bach and / or cottage - you decide

 Great location and very family friendly. Will definitely use again. 

Bach and / or cottage - you decide

 It was perfect. We needed to cater for 15 people for my wifes 40th birthday and Leonie allowed us to be flexible on those numbers if it was needed. It is a lovely property with easy walk to the beach. The kids loved using the boogie boards and the adults appreciated the sky sports channels!! Big deck and bbq, plenty of space. Thanks Leonie, my extended family had a great weekend for a family birthday. Would look to use again without hesitation.

The Hidden Tui beach bach

 The location of the bach is fantastic - it overlooks the sea and has its own little beach at the bottom of the bush clad section (which we had somehow forgotten about, so it was a fantastic surprise!). We loved hearing/seeing all the birds drawn by the bush and wandering down to laze on 'our' beach. 

BACH 33 - Where Summer Never Ends

 This bach is lovely and tidy, has all you need for a good break away. Well equipped kitchen, great bathroom and comfortable lounge. The deck was great for relaxing on and watching the going ons in Ngunguru. Only drawback was some squeaky floor boards, which wouldn't have been a problem but we have a 6 month old with super hearing and every little sound wakes him up! Location is great for visiting lots of beautiful beaches and close to the local shops.
