AROHA COTTAGE at Tasmans idyllic Kina Beach

 Thank you! We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and we hope to come back at some point for a longer holiday.

 Gorgeous wee cottage, immaculate grounds and property. A perfect location for a chilled out weekend away, will be back :)

 An excellent stay, the cottage was very nice and had everything we required. Lovely garden and the surrounding area was beautiful. Lou was an excellent host who made us feel very welcome. 

Atatu  Beach House- stunning Tasman Bay views

 The place was clean and quiet, with a WONDERFUL enclosed front upstairs porch with views of the water. The beach is rocky - great for walks, but not for runs or swimming. Open floor plan is nice, as long as you have early risers in the group that are willing to sleep in loft (if you have 6 people and need the loft). Have to drive to get anywhere, but tons of fun local stuff to do, and easy to get to by car. Bonus: Big backyard with lemon tree and lots of flowers! Great host, lots of wineries.

 Great location and beautiful garden! Enjoyed lemons from the tree but cherries weren't quite ripe yet. Very convenient to the beach for nice walks. The house is charming.
