Classic Kiwi Beach House

 Lovely Bach in a beautiful spot. Great for kids with the big garden, swings and trampoline. And so good to be right by the beach. We'll be back 

Beach House - great surf beach

 Great bach, wonderful deck and sea views, well-equipped. We would definitely recommend. 

Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 Had a great stay. Cute, cosy little bach right in the bush. Would've loved to have stayed longer - would definitely go back. 

Brilliant Big Sur Ocean View

 Gorgeous local and place....great to relax while cooking and looking out over Lion Rock, listening to the waves. Great communication and easy to find. Clean and tidy, with a great little cabin out the back. Definitely would love to stay again.

 A very comfortable, clean, and warm home 

Beachfront bach Piha
