Modern Beach House Stanmore Bay

 A beautiful ' home from home' with excellent facilities for our lengthy stay. Very well equipped and comfortable. The Bach is set near a cliff top with a view of Stanmore Bay and is within easy reach of Silverdale , Whangaparoa and Orewa. 


 Loved it. Must be the best one out of the lot, with the lovely big tree keeping the house cool in the afternoon without interrupting the view. Nice fresh decor, love the decks on each side to either enjoy or avoid the sun and allow a breeze right through. Space outside for kids to play and such a short walk to the beach it was great. Would love to stay again. Many thanks. :-D 

Apartment seaview 2 minutes walk to Beach

 Very nice well-equipped apartment, very peaceful at night, and the large shady deck is wonderful on hot summer days and nights. The owners are obliging and friendly, and went the extra mile by doing some laundry for us in their machine. The two children loved the large array of toys and the close proximity of the beach, with shady pohutakawas a boon. We tried out Manly Beach and Shakespear regional park too - both lovely. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxed holiday.

 A lovely home, in a great location. We had a fantastic time. The weather was perfect but had it not been the house would have been a great refuge too. Thank you! : ) 

Classic Kiwi Family Bach

 We had a lovely family holiday at Manly. The house was the perfect layout for our family with 3 kids. The beach is an easy stroll and we enjoyed visiting nearby attractions. Better pillows would be wonderful.
