    Fantastic location, near the beach and a stone's throw from the harbour. Great to be able to use the kayaks.

    Large property with 4 bedrooms so our 7 adults and 2 little ones fitted in well. The location was superb for our attendance at a wedding at Ohope Golf Course. Quick walk to get a coffee. Used on of the kayaks to take the 2 year old out and life jackets were supplied. Excellent spot for a family break

  • Idont beleive it is top of the range

    Idont beleive it is top of the range. Tv ,set top box,and remotes need fixing, only one out o three remotes would work. Upstairs shower mixer needs attention.

    Owner/manager responds:

    I am surprised at these comments. We found the BATTERIES were missing in the remotes! We don't claim to be top of the range. The bach is comfortable at a wonderful location. It is great value, especially for a group of 9. On 10 January a professional firm retuned the sat box for full FV channel lineup and replaced the dish with a new one. We will check the upstairs shower, but we used it immediately prior this guest, with no problem. I wish he had discussed his comments with us before posting.
