Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 A beautiful 1930's bungalow, tastefully decorated in south pacific art and furnishings, with palms and ferns outside, on a lovely road with giant native trees, native birds and a short walk down a footpath to one of New Zealand's most stunning beaches - seriously! Piri is equal to the superlatives of this home. We couldn't have fund better. This is a true NZ Bach -- it is simple yet cmfortable and well-appointed for a stay and expresses the beauty of the land.
