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. 

Beached at Papamoa for Complete Relaxation.

 The kitchen was very well supplied with knives, appliances, dishes, tea towels... Comfortable beds. Plenty of seating for a larger family or group. Very clean. Back yard was great for outdoor eating - sheltered, well kept, plenty of tables and seating. We pretty much loved everything about this place. Wifi! First time we have had that available. The host was outstanding. We have had some good hosts, but Margie is the best of all we have had so far. 

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

 Perfect location 

Awesome 4 bed Beach Holiday Home

 Handy to the beach, shopping mall, bus stop all within walking distance. 

Beach Break Papamoa-Beachfront

 We had a great stay at your Papmoa Beach House. The only downside was we didn't realise the stairs to the downstairs unit were outside!! this wasn't ideal with small children.
