  • The place was perfect

    The place was perfect. Beautiful outdoor area to sit at which felt private and was also surrounded by lots of flowers. Inside was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Very very well equipped and comfortable.

  • A spacious, clean and beautiful house

    A spacious, clean and beautiful house. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are very comfy. Located only 10 mins drive from Whakatane, this is an ideal place to stay if you're looking for a quiet place with easy access to the city centre. Tips: make a stop at the blueberry farm 7 mins away from here

  • We had a lovely time at Awakeri

    We had a lovely time at Awakeri. The property was gorgeous and private with plenty of lovely outdoor areas to sit and play. We had our 1 year old son with us and he loved crawling around outside. It was very child friendly, we had bought toys but didn't need to as there was plenty there. Will definitely be back :)
