  • Stayed here for 3

    Stayed here for 3. Ifhts in winter (August). Stunning location; private beach with great surf, right next to the bush walk between whale bay and Matapouri (a must do); house is lovely (views and log fire etc) and best of all are the beach 'toys' - 4 kayaks with easy access to a great surf beach. My daughter learnt to surf over our stay.
