New Plymouth City Villa

 We had such a great stay in Mary's house - beautiful house, loads of space, everything we could have ever needed, and a gorgeous sun-filled courtyard to relax in too. We sat outside enjoying the evening sun, the children watched DVD in the huge living room - something for everyone and the perfect place to stay for a family or couples. 

Opunake beach side bach
