The Funky Whanga Bach

 Back a second time, interesting quirky bach, the open living and dining areas were ideal especially in the patchy weather we had. Great being fully fenced/gated for the dog, and can see it would be ideal for kids as well. We were there for an event so being an easy flat walk to the main shops and almost everything else is a bonus. 

Home Sweet Home - The Perfect Whanga Getaway

 Lovely well presented house with a great view of the park and heaps of off street parking 15 mins walk to pretty much anywhere of interest in Whangamata.
