  • Million dollar beach views, honestly gobsmacked, would not hesitate to book again

    Million dollar beach views, honestly gobsmacked, would not hesitate to book again. The home is very comfortable, just turn up with your clothes, nothing else required, everything available to use. Location within walking distance to beach, shops & sports complex.

    Amazing kiwi bach with spectacular seaviews and everything you need for a perfect summer getaway with the family or a group of friends. Awesome layout with separate living areas and plenty of beds, games, books, BBQ, outdoor area...everything has been thought of!! Great location close to all the beaches of the Tutukaka coast. Walking distance to the Ngunguru shops and close enough to Whangarei if you forget something. I would highly recommend this place!

    The layout of this spacious home worked extremely well for 12 guests, and we all had our own areas. I can't recommend this place too highly. It is fantastic!
