 Love staying here! 

Relax at beautiful Whangapoua

 This is a very comfortable family home. It is spacious, well furnished, but not cluttered. We liked the quiet location at the end of the cul-de-sac, but still only a short walk to the beach. 

Absolute Beachfront - Whangapoua - opposite island

 Very hospitable , had great fun on the kayaks!! ThNks! 

Beachfront Whangapoua

 The bach is comfortable and homily. The position could not be better - right on the beach and not far from the estuary. It has everything you could want for a family holiday - a large open living area with kitchen and two bedrooms in the main house and then a large bunk room for children and additional guests. It gives the kids somewhere of their own to hide away in and the adults great space. Ideal for families with friends, older kids and teenagers. 

Modern bach with everything.

 Another wonderful holiday in this bach. Many thanks Lou and hope to see you again next year. 

Whanga Two - Whangapoua Bach
