Bliss in the Bay-Stunning ocean-front beach house

 Very welcoming, just like home, and fantastic view/location. Well set up, everything you could need - kids loved the games. Also coped really well with family all coming round for lunch. Will definitely come back! 

The Ultimate Beach House in lovely Peka Peka

 This house fitted our needs perfectly. Mary Lou was lovely and nothing was a trouble. The location was great and the house had everything we needed. We definitely will be booking again!! Thank you

Modern spacious water front house

 Good quality accommodation. Close to everything. Lovely views. 

Horopito Garden Area

 Nice spacious house. Clean and tidy. Great outdoor areas and lovely spa pool. We very much enjoyed our stay! 

Historic brick stables

 Quiet, lovely setting, clean and tidy. Great place to get away from it all. Could do with some cooking facilities other than a microwave as Otaki doesn't have many eating out options in the evening? We also missed having TV reception but it was't listed as having it so it was my mistake for not realising..many people would take this as a plus to the property :) 

Bach251 absolute beachfront

 Right on the beach front. Great facilities.
