Holiday Home Overlooking Bream Bay

 The house is very accommodating..... On the raining days we made use of the awesome activities the house has.....Board games, TV, DVD, Stereo, & the number of books that are provided. On the sunning days in between swims we relaxed at the beach & had lunch.... An amazing location to get away to.

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!
