The Troll House, Whitianga in the Coromandel, NZ.

 Great facilities. ..with two decks and the dining/lounge space entertaining large groups was easy. And close to beach and estry so suitable for all ages. I also loved the big fridge freezer as when staying multiple days there is ample room to store food/froozen items to feed a large group. Unlike most bach's cleaning fee is compulsory, but well worth it as all the beds have pillows, sheets and duvets(unlike the other baches which is another additional charge)
