Relax at Maesbury---secluded, sunny and private.

 We had a wonderful stay at Maesbury and we are already planning another stay. We found the accommodation and location perfect for what we wanted and would have stayed longer if extra days had been available. The property had privacy and was fully equipped for our needs, is handy for the shops, beach and lovely walks. 

Emerald Cottage Papamoa Beach NZ

 Close to the beach / spacious - perfect for all the family !! 

Classic Kiwi Bach - Papamoa

 "Classic Kiwi bach" is right but that's exactly what we were looking for. It is one street back from the beach so is quiet and there is a large section with plenty of space for throwing frisbees, playing cricket, etc. The bach has all mod cons including a dishwasher and DVD player. Our only issue was that it got very hot and the place could do with better insulation. 

Beached at Papamoa for Complete Relaxation.

 Clean and comfortable. Love the gates at the top of the stairs, and fenced backyard. Great for small kiddies. 

Absolute beachfront bach on sand dunes

 Great location, kids loved the beach. 

Papamoa Luxury Getaway

 I really liked how private the property was and quiet
