West Coast Retreat - stunning sunsets meets river

 Location is beautiful, awesome outdoor entertainment area. Met the neighbours who were lovely and friendly! 

Watch the Sunset from the deck

 Nice big deck, outdoor furniture and BBQ for outdoor meals. Close to the beach and dunes. 

Beachfront Bach 1 hour from Auckland

 Thanks Tina for accepting our last minute booking, we had an awesome weekend last weekend at "Primo Vista" in Port Waikato, the view and sunsets were stunning and we were lucky to have fun, uncrowded waves. The bach is classic Kiwiana, clean & comfortable and the only thing we'd change is we'd put in an outside shower for washing off the sand post surf 

Beachfront Bach 1 hour from Auckland

 Awesome beach bach! Was located right next door to the surf comp venue which could be watched from the deck.

gorgeous little hide away near the beach

 Great bach with everything you could need. This was our second time staying, as we enjoyed it so much the first time. It was like being on a family retreat, with no internet, no phone, and no tv. A much needed rest from the stress and technology of life.
