Christian Bay, 10 mins to Matakana and Omaha

 The house is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of a stunning view. Clever planning has allowed full advantage of the outdoors with shade when required and plenty of sun. The outdoor fire under the night sky is nothing short of special. Birdsong greets you as the sun comes up. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable and an abundance of bathrooms means no waiting. Bright, fresh contemporary the perfect indulgent holiday away to read you book or head of to neighbouring sights.Loved it. 

Pete's Beach House Omaha

Christian Bay, 10 mins to Matakana and Omaha

 Cavan House is exquisitely sited overlooking Christian Bay - the home and its surrounds take in both sea and bush views as well as grazing land - the eye never tires of the view. The home, its layout and furnishing is a delight - lovely bedrooms, living spaces and loads of bathrooms. The space and style of the home gave everyone the opportunity to have time on their own, or interact together as a family. The children's retreat was also a godsend! All in all - the perfect place to escape too. 

The Omaha White House

 The property was very lovely and clean, the views were better than I expected, nice and close to the beach and café. Really enjoyed our time there. An update of the website would be good as not all that was shown or offered was there.

The Omaha White House

 Nice place for a big group. Very bright and good open living. Few short comings already brought to the attention of the new owners which was to be attended to. Will love to hire the place again. Thank you for allowing late check out.

The Omaha White House

 Loved the location by shops and beach, the views from living area, the spaciousness of the house and facilities - fitted 3 families in easily. Not so happy with the windows on the upper level which had no safety catches and were low down (we had 7 very young children with us and were terrified one of them would open the window!); also one of the children was burned when he touched the lights up the stairs - just not a very child-friendly property.
