AROHA .............not beach front but oh so close

 This was our second stay at the lovely Aroha Cottage which we like very much both for itself and the local area. Highly recommended.

Atatu  Beach House- stunning Tasman Bay views

 The property is loverly. The best bit was having a morning coffee in the conservatory looking out to the sea. There is also a gas bbq in the back garden for an easy dinner. I would highly recommend this house. 

AROHA .............not beach front but oh so close

 The cottage was well-appointed, and all the required information was provided. Check-in/check-out was a breeze, and the cottage was clean when we arrived. A great little place! The only improvement I would make would be to add window screens in at least a few of the windows for ventilation purposes- it's too hot in the summer to leave the house shut all day, and having windows open lets a LOT of bugs in, even at night with the lights off.
