Unwind and refresh beachfront at One Tree Point

 nice and tidy extremely comfortable location was great 

HOBSON CHALET DELIGHT private sunny lovely views

 Great location, set in the bush at Onetangi & not too far from the lovely Onetangi beach. The house is comfortable & has all that is needed for a great stay. Not having to bring any linen (sheets or towels) was a bonus as was having access to the Honda CRV. The steep drive would be a challenge for less competent drivers, especially in the wet. Overall an excellent place to stay, thanks for the opportunity

piha beach lounge, overlooking the tasman sea

 Charming property nestled on Garden Road, with stunning view to North Piha beach. (I've now stayed there three times.) 

Miles from Anywhere at Ruapuke

 We loved our stay here!!! What a perfect place to get away from it all- the nearby beach was beautiful! We especially loved that we could bring our two little dogs along with us. We packed our food for the long weekend and only needed to head in to town on a couple of occasions (it's about a 30 minute drive). Thanks so much for a lovely stay!
