Beach House - great surf beach

 Fantastic! The large deck is perfect, with beautiful views. Great location, lovely home, plenty of cutlery/plates - perfect. Wanted to stay longer and would definitely stay again. 

Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 Beautiful little house, in the more quiet end of Piha but still so close to the beach. The Bungalow is nice and clean, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We spent 9 days here and loved it, would definitely stay again. Thank you Piri for making our stay so easy 

Beachfront bach Piha

 Lovely bach that is well maintained & has a fantastic location. 

Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 Great kiwi Bach, very quiet and peaceful. 

Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 We had a great time at Tui Bungalow with our three teenage children, even when it rained for a time. The bach nestles in the hillside among the plants and birds as if it has always been there. We thank the owner for providing the setting for a very happy time at Piha. 

Beach House - great surf beach

 The location was great - I particularly liked the outlook from the deck - very relaxing sitting out there looking at the view in the sun. Very well set up house with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The close proximity to the RSA was good too, had a very nice meal of fish and chips there - so can definitely recommend this holiday house.
