Absolute Beach Front

 The property felt like home. So spacious that family members could interact or have time out comfortably. The views are spectacular and the situation tranquil with an easy walk to the beach or to the corner store. The selection of toys, books & DVDs occupied our smallest family member very happily. The well equipped kitchen made meal preparation and sharing around the large dining table a joy. Great laundry & bathrooms. We hope to return.

THE BLUE TRIANGLE - two storey bach close to beach

 A lovely summer bach with outstanding views and facilities. Loads of things to do such as games, bikes and canoes. Very well stocked kitchen and comfortable furniture. 

'City Bach' - Super-central Downtown Apartment

 Property was great - clean, tidy and well stocked for us. Fantastic location too 

Historic brick stables

 Beautiful character building, nicely converted to a cosy cottage in a very quiet location. 

Holiday on Henare, Olde Beach Waikanae.

 We were a group of seven friends so the house more than adequately accommodated our needs for the 3 nights we spent there. The house was comfortable & well equipped. Location was fantastic - only a 5 minute walk to the beach & walking distance away from dairy & cafes. Highly recommended. 

Absolute Beach Front

 Stayed here to compete in the Karapoti Classic, and it is a great location, only 35 minutes from the race start. This Bach is just the right blend of holiday feel and comfortable house. Slept 8 with ease with great parking and no street noise. Would definitely stay there again
