    The location of this beautiful beach house is wonderful. It's quiet, it's relaxing, right on the beach, a few minutes from a gas station and a great little fish and chip shop. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and the living area is flooded with natural light from the 2 huge sliding doors, which lead onto a large deck. This is fabulous place to recharge your batteries.

    Grey_Stone is a perfect place for a very relaxing break away; very well equipped, clean and comfortable with superb views. Easy drive from Auckland or Hamilton. Prompt and helpful hosts; couldn't ask for more.

    Wonderfully located and designed property. The house itself was as much a feature as the location.
