GORGEOUS HOLIDAY BACH

 Great lil bach with loads of character. Nice location as it was far enough away to be not so busy but was close enough To walk every where. Had everything we needed and everything worked fine. Very happy and would be happy to stay again. Thanks 

CLASSIC KIWI BACH!

 Very close to shops, was able to walk everywhere. Great spot for a relaxed holiday. 

Hop, skip and a jump to the beach!

 Clean, well appointed bach in a great location - just a short walk to a nice part of the beach.

 LIked rural setting looking out from back deck 

Hop, skip and a jump to the beach!

 Fantastic location right next to beach access #13, a very short stroll to the water's edge. Comfort and everything you could need for a no-worries holiday.
