Waterfront, Whitianga, Outstanding Sea Views

 Great location loved the heated pool and spa and lovely tidy apartment with everything you needed there. We had a one year old and not the best apartment for a toddler as has stairs and no stair gate, high chair or cot, but would be perfect for older kids or a romantic getaway with lovely sea views also from the mater bed. 

1950's bach/French country ambience 150mt to beach

 Loved staying at this beautiful French cottage the night before my wedding with my girls. Getting ready for the big day the following morning was extra special as there was lots of room for everyone and we were allowed a late check out. I was woken up by neighbours upstairs in the early morning but as a light sleeper, that was to be expected. Great place to start my wedding day. Thank you Betty!
