Beach Base - Whitianga Bach

 The house is very warm and sunny which is very important. And it creates very welcoming atmosphere I should say. We especially liked that there was a washing machine in the house, because we had 2 babies with us during the stay. An additional surprise was that the owner/manager provided more than enough cleaning products. The only recommendation I can add is to add dishwasher to the kitchen.

 We booked out both house and the attached flat for holiday with extended family. Very clean and tidy. Made great use of the Bar-b-q and outdoor area. Kids enjoyed the kyaks. Great that you can easily walk to the beach and shops. Beautiful part of the country.

Mayfair at Whitianga

 Property was well kept, clean and had everything you would need. Liked that linen was included as family were coming from overseas. Close to beach (3-4min walk) and town, although located in suburban area.
