SNAZZY!  Right in the middle of the action!

 The property was in a great location, only a few minutes walk to shops/restaurants. Lovely comfortable bed and very relaxing environment.

Waihi Haven at the Beach, cycle tracks nearby

 Stunning, bright and welcoming home. So easy to be in and relax in. Very comfortable bed and excellent amenities. Easy walk to the beach and enjoyed the Flip n' Bear pancakes - recommend the baby as it was still the size of a plate!
