There's also the local bowling (lawn bowls) club to get in with the locals as well as enjoy cheap eats, too (try the Sunday roast). You don't really have to go far (or spend money to get there) to find some 'action'.

Walk just a little further and you can visit a couple of vineyards (Kennedy Point, Goldie) with beautiful grounds, award-winning wines for tasting, and eating onsite.

  • We really enjoyed staying here

    We really enjoyed staying here. It isn't in the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas but the (quiet) beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, a lovely walk to the main town (Oneroa) and the convenience of a bus stop on the doorstep.

  • Very well maintained

    Very well maintained. Stones throw from the beach, shops and bus stop. Ideal base for a getaway.

    Very cute little bach, it is small but perfectly suitable for a couple or small group of friends, its in a great location with bus stop across the road, and the beach just around the corner (a lovely little bay, so good to swim in!). Short walk to local shops too. We did have a little trouble with the fold out couch being broken, but the owner has been very good to deal with regarding this, and I believe she is getting it sorted. Overall a good little place to stay, and reasonably priced.
