    The Bach was amazing!! First time staying there and will definitely be booking another time. Was so clean, and just perfect! Just one thing, if you leave your doors open you must have mosquito repellent!! Got bitten heaps! But it was lovely. They're dogs are so friendly. best place to relax and enjoy the views!!

  • What an amazing place! Beautiful setting on the harbour and the unit...

    What an amazing place! Beautiful setting on the harbour and the unit has everything you could need - very well designed and laid out. Easy short drive or cycle into Kawhia village and about 5 mins drive to Aotea beach. Definitely one of our favourite mini holidays and we can't wait to go back! Our dog had a great time too! Than you Yvonne and Mike :)
