Private beachside haven, with own beach access

 It was fabulous. Very clean, comfortable, you really felt like you were in your own home and the view from the kitchen out across the water was lovely. Next time hopefully the weather will be better so we can sit on the balcony. 5 min walking distance to Takapuna central. Would definitely stay again. 

Private beachside haven, with own beach access

 The location was second to none, direct access to the beach was perfect for the kids. Loads of local cafes, beautiful food, great weather. Loved Roxy the cat! My son misses her big time.
