 Beachfront holiday apartment Onetangi

 Superb location and very comfortable accommodation for 4 people.Had kayaks available for us to use which was great.Within an easy stroll of 2 very nice beachfront cafes also.Would definitely consider staying there again in the future. 

The Grove Luxury 2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Apartment

 Great location, glorious apartment. 

Villa Pacifica - Single Unit1 - Free car/transfers

 Fantastic unit with everything we needed for a great stay. Beautiful location. Highly recommend and will definitely stay again! 

Apartment Central Oneroa, Amazing Ocean Views.

 Very convenient location being in the heart of Oneroa. Tidy property, very appropriate to our needs...comfortable beds. One thing that could be mentioned is the height of the shower. You need to step up into it. There is a stool to use but it still might not be suitable for an elderly or disabled person. 

Palm Beach Holiday Apartment

 Great location across the road from gorgeous beach with amenities, clean, well-equipped apartment. 

2 minutes from beach - 7 minutes from Village

 The property was spacious, well maintained, well catered, even down to a carafe of wine and a few beers in the fridge all for our enjoyment. Abundance of towels, cosy beddings and a view to beat. Just two minutes walk to the beach. A slice of paradise. Will definitely recommend and revisit.
