  • This batch is a luxury house and is fabulous and extremely comfortable

    This batch is a luxury house and is fabulous and extremely comfortable. It is right on the beachfront and the view is great from the upstairs living areas. The gardens are lovely and are full of tui. It is very well equipped, with everything we needed and more. Linen was good and the kitchen had everything. There are supermarkets at Otaki and Waikanae about 10 minutes north or south. Fabulous place to stay and thoroughly recommenced.

  • Wonderful house with a brilliant location

    Wonderful house with a brilliant location. I stayed there with my extended family and we had lots of room. Right on the beach, so perfect for lots of walks over the day. The house is also setup really well, so we were able to just settle in and enjoy our holiday. Would definitely stay again.
