piha beach lounge, overlooking the tasman sea

 Amazing view! Loved the lounge set up for on the deck. Wines in the afternoon sun and sunset. Quick easy walk to the beach down a track. Highly recommend this place!! 

Bach in quiet bush setting with sea views

 Beautiful bush setting, quiet, peaceful, spacious, great views - definitely a retreat. Beach, cafe, store and pub within easy walking distance. Loved the sounds of the birds, especially kaka. I highly recommend this place. 

Ferndale Cottage

 Fully fenced for the dog so no worries there. The property was great especially at the top to be able to sit at the picnic table & look at the lovely view of the water. The neighbours at the bottom of the walkway were very nice people also 

Bach in quiet bush setting with sea views

 Beautiful location, cute little house. Could do with a bit of a clean though. Also only two towels were left out for three guests. Otherwise, I would highly recommend it for a quiet getaway - peaceful and calm, but close to amenities.
