 For a Bach it is perfect, every thing you need for a holiday at the beach, Highly recommend it. Will be back to stay again.?? 

Kaka Cottage, Bird Area, Taupo

 Location was excellent. The property would be enhanced with provision of wi-fi. Otherwise it provided all the facilities needed for a very comfortable stay. Some crockery was.badly chipped. 

Dingle Beach House Kaka Point

 Close to everything.... wonderful 

Cute, Retro, cosy two bedroom cottage

 Was a very nice location, enjoyed the stay very much 

Paradise in Whitianga

 Excellent location with 2-minute walk to the sea and 10 minute walk to shops. Comfortable house, well equipped. Only issue was that one night we had someone on a very noisy motorbike driving up and down a nearby road at 2 a.m. using full power. Stopped after 15 minutes.
