Classic Kiwi Bach with all the trimmings

 Lovely stay very nice place to stay with the kids easy walk to the beach and park 

restful and relaxing immaculate batch

 We had a lovely family weekend break in Whangamata. The Drive was a lovely property to stay in. Facilities really good, bedrooms all a good size and the lounge was very warm and sunny. Good size deck area, although we didn't use the deck as the weather was not great.. Clean and tidy and would definitely stay again.

Beverley Tce bach, tropical, funky and functional.

 We enjoyed our stay. Location is great, you really can walk to the beach or town within a few minutes. The house is retro and homely. Very clean and tidy. Lovely back garden. Thank you for sharing your home/bach with us
