Luxury Tuscan Beach Home Whangamata

 Fantastic house, extremely well set up with everything anyone could possibly need Loved the place, loved the house and loved the holiday 

Patuwai ('By the Water')

 Very happy, the bach was great, good location, well maintained, plenty of space and beds, loved the decks. We had a great time and would rent it again next time a large group of us stay in Whangamata. 

Room For All The Toys

 We had a great week away staying at this bach. The house is great, a perfect holiday house for families with children. The separate TV area and the large front lawn were very popular with our boys. The bach is an easy walk to the beach and close to the new playground at the local reserve. 

Luxury Tuscan Beach Home Whangamata

 This is a fantastic property. We were a group of two families and there was easily enough room for us all. Location is great, right next to a walkway to the beach, and all had fun using the kayaks and stand up paddle boards. 

Whangamata - Sun Trap

 The property is homely and lovely - in a good location near to beach and town
