A couple of comments from the Visitors Book -

"Amazing location with stunning views. Even better, caught fish off the backyard and pipis fresh out of the water yummo!"

"Awesome place, we got a good sized snapper within half an hour of getting here! Then a kingfish!"

    I thought the property was nice, I thought the furniture/kitchen equipment etc was a little old and could do with replacing. The cleaner needs to check for cobwebs!!!

    Great place to stay, well kept kiwi Bach, nice walk to the shops and drive to nearby beaches. Loved the estuary, shame we didn't catch anything, but had great fun spotting stingrays and using the kayaks.

    Great location on the waterfront. Handy for various beaches and activities in the area. House is well equipped and is an ideal spot for a short break

    The property backs right onto the estuary making it the ideal fishing spot from the back lawn. The boys were kept busy for hours and their efforts rewarded when they landed a nice sized Kingfish. We swam, kayaked, walked, read, tanned, ate and drank with the beautiful Ngunguru estuary as our backdrop. If you're not looking for a house with whistles and bells, and content with bach style living in a great location this is it. We would happily holiday here again.
