    Great views, good location but was slightly damp and would recommend a dehumidifier. Otherwise we had a lovely stay.

  • Great, well stocked bach

    Great, well stocked bach. Quiet neighborhood with everything you need (gas bbq, outdoor furniture, well stocked kitchen etc). Short drive to Paihia and the car ferry. Bach was clean and tidy - only draw backs were the slightly older fridge which froze some of our food, and the skylight in the main bedroom - very noisy in the ran and made sleep ins a bit hard with the early morning light. Otherwise awesome & very kid friendly (even though we didn't have any with us) :)

  • Comfortable and tidy bach in a nice location

    Comfortable and tidy bach in a nice location. We enjoyed the easy access to the coastal walkway, and it was nice to be in a secluded-feeling spot while still being close to the tourist attractions. Our group of four adults and one child were comfortably accommodated. The hidden stairs wouldn't work well for families with a toddler, but our 6-year old thought they were fantastic!
