    Pros: Children's park across the road School across do have a swimming pool and vice principle allowed us to use it free of change Lots of bird noises all day along In house books, games and puzzles Cons: Ants (Lots of ants, If you spill some food, clean asap, if not with-in 5 min ants will be there) Nearby beaches are full of mud, so no swimming (At least we didn't spend more than 10 mins on the beach) Have to carry all the garbage (Even they covered with ants) Closest shop 30min drive away

    Owner/manager responds:

    Your feedback on the area is sadly disappointing . The Kaipara is know for its beautiful coastline. In case you aren't aware, being a harbour at low tide, the water does go right out and while it is not white sand, it's certainly sand and not "full of mud Apologies for the ants. Being a country home and especially in summer, there will always be some ants and caution needs to be taken with food spillage. The website did advise you regarding the nearest shops and garbage disposal.

    Tranquil and Peaceful - I would highly recommend this place to families/anyone who is wanting to get away from it all and relax. My kids really enjoyed the backyard and park across the road - we had such a great time here and the locals are very friendly too, coming back again to escape :)

  • It was a very nice, quiet bach in a beautiful area

    It was a very nice, quiet bach in a beautiful area. The house was tidy and had all the essentials. It was a perfect location for a quiet weekend away from the city.
