Ultimate Beach Front

 Location was great. I only gave it 3 stars as the place was older than I thought but everything was in working order and the instructions were well communicated. Location and view were 5 stars tho.

 A genuine kiwi bach in a magic spot. If u want somewhere where you can relax and put your feet up, then I would recommend this bach.

 Most idyllic postition, our favourite place so far. Perfect place for family and friends with loads of room and beds. Love how it is a real beach house and so comfortable. We will be back.
