Peacefull waterfront bach

 That it was a typical NZ beachside Bach, just like I like them 

Award Winning Beach House

 This is a wonderful laid-out property and we always feel very relaxed and at home. The Kids bedroom is just Perfect and they just love going to this property. So close to the beach and Matakana we love it and we will rent again. Thank you so much.:) 

Grace Cottage: Private retreat overlooking Bay

 Beautiful quiet location in the trees. Birds were exceptional every morning. Dealing with the owners was quick and easy. The bach was clean and well presented. Highly recommended. Be aware that the bay is tidal (but other beautiful beaches are within easy reach). We enjoyed our stay immensely. Thank you! 

Beautiful Omaha Beach - Lovely Self Contained Bach

 Walking distance from the beach, great indoor outdoor flow, good cooking amenity. 

Tawharanui Park And Private Swimming Cove

 What a great place to stay. Would recommend for a relaxing holiday 

Omaha Tranquillity - and short walk to the Beach

 The decks around the house make it easy to see the sun:)
