Luxury Tuscan Beach Home Whangamata

 So close to beach, house was amazing had everything you needed and more 

Luxury Tuscan Beach Home Whangamata

 The beds and rooms were very comfortable. We were so much happy with how close we were to the beach and the equipment provided contributed to much of the enjoyment we had as first timers to the famous Whangamata beach. Would come again. 

Luxury Tuscan Beach Home Whangamata

 This place was amazing to stay in, felt like we were in Europe ! Very much a luxury place to stay and I would highly recommend it, a very quick flat 1 min walk to the sand. I would recommend it to friends and think it is the perfect place for 3 couples to go for a weekend. Only negative was not really a place for younger children (over 10 OK) as no single beds/bunk room etc, and I was a bit nervous they might break something! but it does have fully equipped nursery great for a young baby.
