Tawharanui Park And Private Swimming Cove

 Don't tell anyone but this is paradise found!! 

Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 Great location to get away from it all, plenty of space, lovely home and great views. 

Beautiful Omaha Beach - Lovely Self Contained Bach

 Perfect size for our little family and so close to the beach, down the Southern End. Gorgeous days spent riding bikes in the dunes, eating ice creams and lots of swims. Bach was well laid out, with plenty of room for us all, and with all the mod cons. Especially appreciated the new BBQ and also the blender, for the morning smoothies :) Thanks so much! 

Cosy fire, Fantastic views, Great deck, Just relax

 Well equipped, nice big decks and good view 

Matheson Bay Cottage

 Fabulous property, gorgeous little home tucked in the woods with an outdoor bath, play equipment for the kids, and we could lie in bed and look at the kauri trees and wood pigeons. There was a lovely little walk to matheson's bay so we didn't even need to get in the car. The home was beautifully clean and set up with everything we could need, and the property owners were just lovely. Highly recommended, we didn't want to leave! 

"Tui,s Song" Holiday Home

 Lovely house and lovely spot. Had a great time :)
