 Fantastic bach we had a very relaxing time. The owners were very accomodating in providing a portacot for our stay. Weather was great would love to stay there again.

Sunny, spacious property close to beach

 Everything is comfortable, nothing you could need that wasn't there - very warm and cosy but plenty of space even with 7 of us there!

Otaki Beach Retreat: Treat yourself to time out

 Lovely hostess and location. Di was really accommodating and understanding when we underestimated the traffic and ran late. The eggs from happy chickens was great way to start the day too! 

Kohine - Beachfront Bliss

 Kohine was delightful, we had everything we needed, it felt like home the moment we walked in.
