  •  Loads of space for the 9 of us (two families). Loved having the big dining table - lots of great conversations happened around it. Excellent kitchen facilities and the sleepout was a great escape for the kids (which was great for us parents too!) Great access to the beach through the cool bush trail you've made. The few things that needed attention I have emailed owner directly and she was receptive to feedback. 

  •  Great place to stay. Quiet, private and with its own access to the beach. Lovely!! Added bonus of the boutique winery next door :) 

  •  we stayed only two nights and wished it was longer, very peaceful and quiet which we loved, caught some amazing fish off the beach at the bottom of the track at low tide, awesome! The house has all the comforts of home with a big kitchen that has everything you need, we hope to be back again soon, one of our favorite places so far, thank you so much. 

  •  Lets just say I hope that Grahams Beach stays a well kept secret. This home and its location are very special. Very comfortable accommodation with everything you might want supplied and the added bonus of Awhitu Wines right next door. And our dogs loved it too!! 

  •  Great bach, fantastic spot. We all had a wonderful time, would stay again 

  •  Love that it had amazing seaviews, just a hop skip and jump to the waters edge, everytjing you could possibly need for a great break was their, large living areas, extensive outdoors areas, a separate cottage, and a big indoor play/games area for the children. Grahams beach is a lovely location, all we wanted was to get away from everything, and this place is certainly that. 

  •  Just back from spending a long weekend at the bach - there were 8 adults and 6 children - I loved the bach. It was very clean, lovely bedlinen & towels, the bed we had was huge and super comfortable. More like a home than a bach. Beautiful sea views from two of the three bedrooms in the main house. It was fantastic having the large rumpus room as we could all just leave our buggies, and chilly bins in there without clogging up the house. Next door to vineyard. Loads to do in the area. Loved it. 

  •  Location, location, location! What a wonderful bach! Very well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. The hosts have thought of everything. Recommend the friday night Bistro at the local golf club, the short walk to the vineyard next door, and a walk along Grahams Beach. Have stayed in many baches and this one is one of the best. Happily recommend to other families. 

  •  Great property, great location. We really enjoyed our stay. 

  •  The Bach is in a wonderful position and is excellent for families and kids - has a great layout and plenty of activities and toys/bikes etc. for kids - Grahams Beach is lovely - tide in or tide out. Property has plenty of room - 3 acres. There are some maintenance issues which I have notified the owners about - nothing at all wrong with the bach, it is excellent, just a few extra "man-hours" required to clear these things up.

  •  A fablous place to have a family holiday with lots of space for everyone, activities for the kids our own private beach and the beautiful Awhitu Peninsula to explore, all 90 minutes from Auckland. Perfect! 

  •  Awesome Bach! We were three families with children from 5 - 11. The sports equipment was great, the views fantastic. We had everything we could need for a wonderful weekend away. The area is lovely and if we had more time we would have explored more. Don't forget to check out Mrs Pickles and the vineyard next door for some lovely wines. 

  •  Great bach in a secluded area. Very peaceful and relaxing. A nice and helpful owner. Would come again. 

  •  A lovely home in a lovely spot. Everything was as advertised and the owner was good to deal with. 

  •  Absolutely amazing Bach, and Treena makes you feel so welcome. There was 9 of us that went, but there was loads of space. The days were spent playing games on the expansive lawns, and the evenings spent in front of the warm wood fire. I cannot recommend this Bach enough. 

  •  We stayed at Grahams Beach with our two adult children, partners and two grandchildren and immediately felt at home. The bach was exactly as described and the grandchildren had a ball playing with all the toys in the garage, sandpit and trampoline. We enjoyed the walk down the track to the beach where there was absolutely no one and back to the bach for a wine by a lovely fire, listening to a few CDs. The whole place is so well equipped and we would love to come back again. 

  •  Another great trip to Graham's beach. Plenty of room for our whole family. Utilised the cottage this time. Thanks again Treena. 

  •  Treena was very efficient, very quick to respond to my email and very friendly and helpful. The bach was clean and welcoming. Instructions were clear, linen was lovely - beds already made up and cleaning part of the cost of booking. We have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about it. We were a party of 4 couples and the space worked well for us. Perhaps the only niggle was only one bathroom but hey we survived that! The vineyard/winery next door was lovely for a quick visit. 

  •  Awesome place to stay, well set up, excellent communication, great for kids and dogs,this is our third stay and hope to be back again next year. :) 

  •  Fantastic stay. Very accommodating on all fronts. Thanks so much. Highly recommend this place and location - we will be back. 

  •  Wow! What an amazing bach; fantastic location, amazing facilities and superb accomodation. The playroom was a huge hit with the children, plenty of space and beds (and linen) for everyone, a well equipped kitchen and even a play mate for our dog! Totally and wholeheartedly recommend this bach to any groups of families (the 6 children in our party ranged from 6yrs to 18 months) and honestly the best place that any of us have stayed in! This is our second time staying here and just love it! 

  •  Great location, and everything you could ask for in a holiday home - they've got it all, so there is no lack of things to keep you comfortable and entertained. The house is in great condition, lovely comfy beds and just perfect for groups, toddlers and older kids alike. We had such a wonderful time at Grahams Beach, we will most definitely recommend it and be back ourselves, hopefully soon! 

  •  We recently rented this bach as a base for a ladies weekend. It was perfect, so much room both inside and out. Peaceful, quiet and tranquil. The winery next door was a huge bonus, and with perfect weather it all combined to make the ultimate girls retreat. This is a fantastic place, and we can't wait to return with our husbands and children. 

  •  Fantastic property. Plenty to do for our 20month old and our 15 year old. Lovely and quiet, easy access to the beach. House was clean and everything we needed was provided for and the beds were nice and comfy. Well recommended. 

  •  Owner was very friendly and helpful, couldnt have asked for better at all! House was lovely, beach was lovely, even the pod of Orcas that swam past just after we had finished dinner one night was lovely to watch from the dinner table!! Place is ideally suited to a couple of families with kids....lots of sports gear and beaches for your entertainment!!
