 Great location, great view. Highly recommended. 

Paradise in Whitianga

 A wonderful weekend made all the better by the outstanding accommodation. The property had everything we needed and the location was perfect. Would definitely return.

 Had an incredible stay here. An immaculate and good sized house with living areas to watch the boats & people go by, or to BBQ on the deck out back in the evening sun. Cruisy walk to town. Easy to feel at home here. Hope to go back one day.
