located in quiet street

 It had plenty of room and was well equipped. 

Whangamata bach quiet area close to beach & shops

 does exactly what it says on the tin - a comfortable, clean, cosy house with plenty of room. A safe large backyard for the kids, two bathrooms were handy, a very well stocked kitchen appliance-wise which was handy. Nothing exceptionally flash, just a proper kiwi bach. Fabulous location right near town and the BEACH! A great holiday largely due to this bach. We will definitely be returning and recommending this property. 

Whangamata Central - close to beach and shops

 great location, only a two minute walk to the beach and two minutes to the nearest shops. Great bach, comfortable beds and new bathroom facilities. quiet street, private section :) 

Beachfront Whangamata, lovely bach, stunning view

 The location was outstanding. Right on the beach in a quiet area but near enough to the shops and cafes to walk rather than drive. The property was very well equipped, clean, comfortable and attractively furnished. We had a really enjoyable stay and would love to go back. 

Whangamata Retreat

 great property with many outdoor areas to relax at. 

Modern & close to Beach, Sea, Cafes, Shopping

 Great Location & setup in bach. Had fun, so close to everything.
