Fisherman's Rest- in magnificent Mercury Bay.


Watersend, Whitianga

 Perfect for families. The pool was amazing and bring right in the water was an added bonus. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly want or need. Great beds and pillows, tons of games and movies and even a bollards table! Wow! We will definitely be back! 

Whitianga Escape - Relax in Style - Holiday Home

 Close to everything, and the outdoor deck was awesome! 

Beach Cove Stunning Ocean-Front - Great Location

 Warm welcome, friendly hosts and a beautiful well kept house...would love to stay again...:-) cheers. Shiju 

La Plage - Whitianga Villa

 The rental was 'as advertised' and proved to be a great base for exploring this wonderful part of New Zealand. My only suggestion for the property is to offer some form of internet. There is a good cell phone signal, but I was forced to use my cell as a hot spot for laptop use. Otherwise, it was a great rental! 

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)
