 The house is well set up & easily accommodated our 2 families. The location is private, with good swimming & fishing nearby - highly recommended! 

Stunning ocean views, colonial style Kauri Villa

 Cool spot. Wicked setup. 

Awakino River Lodge - Coastal Romance - Historic

 Very cozy feel about such a large space, the house delivered relaxation the moment we walked in the door 

Barnstyle eco lodge - stunning ocean and mt views.

 We spent six days in the Blodge and had a lovely time in a comfortable,spacious, very complete house with a stunning view. If we didn't live 20000 km away I could easily rent this house every year. 

Dolphin Vista - Luxury living between 2 beaches

 We really much enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect. The house is really comfortable. Thank you
