  • We are a retired couple

    We are a retired couple. We stayed with our daughter and her family. We all enjoyed our time at Lakeside Delight and the view from the kitchen was spectacular. However it would have been improved had there been towel rails and more powerpoints.

    Location was fantastic for us, we love Wharewaka point and 4 mile bay and to be in walking distance to both as well as the playground for the kids etc was the best part. The views out the kitchen/dining windows are pretty spectacular too!
