Central Mount Maunganui Townhouse

 We loved our stay, we were with 2 small children and found the location perfect with cafes a short walk, a fantastic playground and pilot bay at the end of the street. The kitchen was very well equipped. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable. This place is obviously used by the owners which I always find makes it much more comfortable than a holiday let. The property was very clean and lots of towels available, washing machine and dryer worked well as well a private area to hang out. 

Golf & beach. Spacious & clean.

 Lovely and spacious. Great central location. Marie is lovely and very welcoming. Everything that we needed was there. Thanks Marie 

Charming Retro Bach minutes from the beach

 This bach was fantastic for our family group of 7 adults and toddlers. It had everything we needed and there was plenty of space for the family to spread out. Was great to have fenced outside space for toddlers. Recommend this bach to others. 

Mount Maunganui Apartment

 Lovely apartment, very well presented. Spacious, great facilities. Would definitely recommend to others. 

Rest and relax near the beach

 Te bach was only a three minute walk away from a beautiful stretch of Papamoa beach. The bach was very kiwi bachy in nature. It had a lot of character and despite being small it is very functional and comfortable. The bach had everything we needed. And Karen also kindly let us use her wireless internet which was very much appreciated. We had a very nice stay. 

The Beach Suite- Papamoa

 We loved our stay in The Beach Suite! The suite was perfect; clean, modern and well-appointed. The shower was great, the Queen bed super comfy and the BBQ area = awesome! PLUS it's right across the road from the beach, and super handy to anything you could possibly want/need on holiday (supermarkets, takeaways, shops etc). We couldn't have asked for better hosts in Brad & Seonie; they gave us our own space but were there if we needed them at the drop of a hat. We will be back!
