 Lovely location and really friendly, classic kiwi getaway. 

Cute little kiwi bach

 A wonderful, cosy bach with everything you could possibly need. Handy to beach and an easy walk (20 mins) to shops, cafes etc. 

Changing Tides Studio Estuary Views

 A really lovely stay. Fantastic location - a nice walk into town and the ferry, with great views and a wonderful picnic spot across the road overlooking water and the boats coming and going. The studio was immaculate and modern. A fantastic shower aqnd comfy bed. There are limited kitchen facilities so you need to be prepared to eat out or have cold meats and salads, however not a hardship. We would definitely return. 


 Excellent location. Close to all facilities. Tidy and Clean. Very friendly and helpful host. 


 Thanks for the hospitality, we greatly enjoyed our stay 

Self-contained garden studio

 Lovely little room - neat and tidy and had all we needed in lovely garden behind host's home. More than enough privacy. Very centrally placed and close to everything. Hosts were very welcoming and friendly.
