Beautiful beach-front house

 Stunning location. Wonderful place for people to spend time together in a really relaxed setting. The parade is very pedestrian friendly. Great swimming beach. The house is lovely. Thoroughly recommend people don't get put off by the 4 night minimum stay. MAKE THE TIME!

Amazing Cliff Top Ocean Front Apartment

 Amazing apartment , very well appointed , close to amenities , fantastic views you just have to experience , totally enjoyed our stay there and would not hesitate to book again 

Modern beach house close to the sea

 Spacious and beautifully presented holiday house, we didn't want to leave. Huge deck out the back which is fully fenced to keep little people in. We all loved the hammock, and the children loved looking for caterpillars on the giant swan plant. The house is so close to the beach, and the beach itself is great for small children. So close to Auckland yet we felt a million miles away. Thank you for letting us stay :-)

Tropical Oasis Awaits

 The pictures REALY don't do this beautiful piece of heaven on Earth justice....it was awesome! The house, the facilities, the space, the spa, the pool, the veggie garden, the chickens....it was unbelievably excellent! We will certainly return and would highly recommend it to anyone who want a luxury break without breaking the bank.... We took our parents (77 & 76), 2 boys (12 & 9) and ourselves and there was something for all of us...
