 From the outside the house looks like a quaint cottage, then you walk in the door it is stunning. Well designed, absolutely recommend to all our family and friends and yes the shower is stunning.

Opunake beach side bach

 Thanks for the stay - we had an amazing time with family celebrating a birthday, it is an awesome secluded spot with the most amazing views - sunrise and sunsets are picture postcard and the mountain view is pretty stunning too - so good to be so close to the beach, with great adventures getting there, beanbags on the large deck are a great spot to spend the evenings - we only stayed one night but all wished we could stay longer and definitely plan to hopefully be back sometime. 

No. 19 - New 1 bedroom cottage in rural setting

 It was lovely, quiet, comfortable and clean. Malcolm was an awesome host. Both beds are comfortable. A lot of thought has gone in to making this a fantastic place to stay. Would recommend to everyone. Close enough to go to New Plymouth too.
