Ultimate Beach Front

 A genuine kiwi bach in a magic spot. If u want somewhere where you can relax and put your feet up, then I would recommend this bach. 

Affordable Bach - 100m to Beach *Free WiFi*

 Clean and tidy bach, contained everything we needed. Great location. 

Beachside Pataua South Getaway

 Nice place to lie back, relax, enjoy the sea views. Thanks Gary. 

Large holiday home on a hill by the sea

 We had an amazing weekend staying at this awesome house with lots of quirky character. Perfectly situated with a beautiful view, big grassy lawn and heaps of space. Was really good for a big family group as plenty of communal areas and chill-out zones. Only draw back was that the BBQ was temporarily out of action, but ended up better in the end as we used a grill over a fire. Would love to come back one day! 

On Water's Edge at Pataua South: Whangarei 30 mins

 Lovely home in a wonderful situation on the water. The home is obviously well loved and cared for by the owner and was presented superbly. Cannot fault the property. 

Pataua Retreat - absolute beach front

 It was brilliant, it felt like we were in the NZ of 20 years ago. Brought back some wonderful memories of being young.
