Ruakaka Beach House Retreat

 Location and size. 

Ruakaka Beach Holiday Retreat

 We had a lovely time staying at Paradise Shores. The house was perfect for families with little kids and so close to the beach too! It was fully equipped, had an outside shower with hot water and the place was well looked after.. The only thing was we didnt get to use the bbq as it was out of gas but that didn't stop us having a nice dinner. Perfect spot for fishing and crabbing too! We will definitely be back and recommend this house to all our friends!

Ruakaka Beach Holiday Retreat

 Fantastic location to the surf club, spacious, open plan, welcoming, bright and very comfy. Fully equipped kitchen, great bbq and entertainment areas for all the family, comfy beds and additional bathrooms a bonus, the outdoor shower a hit for after surfing and competitions. A wonderful layout to the Bach, we will be back and highly recommend to anyone. Owners a pleasure to deal with. One of the cleanest and fully equipped places we have rented - thank you :)
