Wharemauku Retreat Raumati

 The property is ideally situated. The walk from the main road was an "adventure" for my two boys and the view from the front deck is beautiful. With unexpectedly cold weather, it was good to find adequate heat sources inside and the boys were thrilled to have an open fire in the evening. It was an easy walk along the beach to the village, where there was a reasonable choice of eateries and good coffee. There is also a mall with supermarket and cinema a short drive away.
