Panoramic views from Rakino to Coromandel !

 This was such a lovely and comfortable home. Robin was great to communicate with and assured that everything was there for us and working. Everything we needed was there including vegetables and salad in the garden for our meals. A beautiful view! 

PALM  BEACH  DELIGHT - Palm Beach

 An amazing, beautifully decorated and comfortable cottage with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. The deck overlooks a delightful, sheltered private garden whistling with Tuis and Kereru. A five minute stroll takes you to the golden sands of Palm Beach. It doesn't get any better than this. The only potential drawback is the steepish climb from the car park to the cottage. However, the stairs are well-maintained and perfectly safe. 

Expansive sea views, modern design, all day sun

 Very warm, clean and tidy and bonus of basic essentials in the well equipped cupboards. Would be nice to have some lamps in the living room for some subtle night time lighting.
