Relax in modern bach in Mahanga

 Good location to the beautiful beach, bach was immaculate, everything we needed - appreciated the aircon. Many thanks for sharing your bach. 

Original Kiwi Bach - Mahanga

 The holiday house has a relaxing feel as you enter the door. It is a classic kiwi bach with a great location near a beautiful beach. There is a nice area behind the home for BBQ's etc. We had a lovely weekend away even though the weather was far from ideal. 

Relax in modern bach in Mahanga

 Mahanga beach is perfect for surfers. The Bach is still like new and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 

The Quarters - unforgettable ocean views

 The quarters is a really unique setting and ideal if you want to just down tools and do nothing but soak in the view. Its simple but has everything required to eat and relax. Long way to the supermarket so come well stocked. Mahanga beach is just down the road for a surf and is a beautiful beach. Great holiday thanks. 

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.
