  • Lovely setting with a comfortable house which suited all our needs

    Lovely setting with a comfortable house which suited all our needs. There is literally something for everybody, our little ones loved the sandpit and the safe environment. Easy access to beach and estuary a plus and the huge Pohutukawa at the front created a lovely shady spot on hot days. Would love to return for another stay.
