Chill Out at the Beach

 Location a little too far away from the beach for us 

Beached at Papamoa for Complete Relaxation.

 Clean, good sized house with comfortable beds, lovely fenced backyard. 5mins walk to the beach. Good parking space for our 3 cars. Very handy having WiFi. 

Relax in the Sun - *STAY - PLAY - THEN WALK AWAY*

 The house is spacious, has lots of space, suits 8 easily. The information about rubbish and recycling was unclear and could have been clearly explained in the guest book. 

Beach Break Papamoa-Beachfront

 Had a great time as usual. Really enjoy staying here. 

Beached at Papamoa for Complete Relaxation.

 This property catered very well for our 3 families to enjoy a holiday away together. The property was fully fenced and very child friendly. Location was very close to the beach. We had a super enjoyable stay at this property. 

Relax in the Sun - *STAY - PLAY - THEN WALK AWAY*

 This is a lovely, spacious bach - sunny and airy. Very neat, tidy and pleasant. Great location too.
