Stunning Riverfront House

 Nice relaxing place to stay. 

Classic Beachfront Kiwi Bach - Oraka Beach - Mahia

 Fantastic bach. It's everything you would want for a beach holiday. We are already booked and coming back. Thanks for letting your bach be used by others. 

The Quarters - unforgettable ocean views

 We loved the tranquil setting of The Quarters, as well as the awesome views and closeness to the beach. The children loved being able to explore the farm on their own. The house was very comfortable and felt spacious even when six of us were staying in it. 

The Quarters - unforgettable ocean views

 Once again the fact we are by ourselves with no neighbours. I took up the shot gun ans set up a double clay target thrower up by the airfield. Awesome view. Awseome day. 

Relax in modern bach in Mahanga

 The property was excellent. It was in very good decorative order, well set up, and very clean. The weather was was very hot when we were there we appreciated the air con very much indeed. We did not use any of the facilities because we were using the bach mainly for sleeping and tranquillity (!) while the rest of the family and grandchildren were staying together at Mahia in a larger bach! The arrangement was perfect! Thank you 

Stunning Riverfront House

 Wonderful bach, and wonderful owner! We loved staying there, and the owner made sure we had what we needed and even brought us some fresh fish for the bbq one day! The house is lovely and open, and the kitchen was great for cooking up a massive New Years eve dinner. The grounds were lovely, and we loved the goats in the paddock behind the bach! Can't thank the owner enough for going way beyond the call of duty. Recommend this to anybody who wants to explore this part of the world.
