    We had a very relaxing and refreshing time. The area is beautiful for nature lovers like us. We also enjoyed good dinning places not too far. Thanks John

  • Proximity to Auckland is fantastic

    Proximity to Auckland is fantastic. Cottage is clean and tidy with a great deck that has lovely views through the Nikau Palms out to sea. Great area for the kids with 2 playgrounds in walking distance. Also perfect romantic getaway. Nice walk to Baddeleys beach (2 mins walk) or to Campbells Beach (10 mins walk). Enjoyed visiting local beaches Tawharanui (stunning) and Omaha and the Matakana market on Sat morning.
