Rest and relax near the beach

 This Bach is beautiful. It is so cosy and quirky with lots of homely touches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a special little place to stay. Thank you Karen

Beach Break Papamoa-Beachfront

 Great location, the beach only 10 steps away. Accommodation and facilities were a home away from home. Plenty of space for my adult children in the upstairs apartment and private self-contained private space downstairs for us. Outside deck area with bbq and outdoor furniture were a treat during our stay. Great onsite hosts, who were on hand to give advice.
