The Omaha White House

 Great location, close to the beach - very spacious and easy to fit everyone in without being on top of each other. The views along the coast were great and the deck with the setting sun was geat

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.

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.
