Fabulous modern studio flat in lovely quiet street

 Great studio with all mod cons, very clean and tidy. Was a lovely place to base ourselves for the long weekend, thanks. Maybe just needs a bit of privacy on the deck. 

Whangamata Vistas B&B

 The view from the room was fab and it was so peaceful as it is up in the hills away from the crowds. The room was very well appointed and spacious with a comfortable bed. Nice breakfast too.
