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.
