The Funky Whanga Bach

 Amazing place to stay, really relaxing.. We loved the fact it was fully fenced off so the kids could run around freely.. Toy Room was great! Had everything you needed!! Even water pressure! :) Would diff recommend to anyone, old or young!! Loved the location as it was only a 7min stroll to the beach, 2min to the supermarket and 5min to the main street/shops
