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 :-)

 What a wonderful place to stay. Plenty of room for the whole family and it has everything you need for your stay. Elizabeth and Gary are very polite, lovely people and I would not hesitate to stay again or tell everyone about this wonderful house. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your lovely house Elizabeth and Gary :)

Modern beach house close to the sea

 House was amazing - so close to the beach. Awesome open plan living, dining and kitchen with terrace and balcony with view of the sea. Terrace was fully fenced so perfect for our 2 year old to play and ride his bike. 3 large bedrooms with doors leading outside. Would highly recommend this house for a family/friends holiday. We loved it, thanks for an awesome stay. 

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. 

Holiday on the Hibiscus Coast

 Beautiful beach and easy access to attractions further north.
