Very good accommodation with everything you need for a stay away from home.
The unit was very clean and well suited to a short stay away. The location was peaceful and it was a short drive to the township of Kawhia or the harbour side settlement of Aotea. The owners were good to deal with even though we never met in person, they made it easy re payments and key instructions.
Yvonne and Mike are the perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful lookout over the harbour with the flocks of Canadian geese flying overhead the only sound.
Wonderful lookout over the harbour with the flocks of Canadian geese flying overhead the only sound. Great base to explore Marakopa Falls and the fossils at krirteihere beach. Very restful.
Lovely place to stay.
Lovely place to stay. The stand alone unit had everything we needed, we had our own little patio to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings. Yvonne has a beautiful garden and I enjoyed observing the numerous Monarch butterflies and birds in the trees as well as the ever changing tidal Kawhia Harbour. The sunsets were pretty spectacluar too! A must-do is Ocean Beach at low tide where you can dig your own hot pool - spades were provided at the unit which was appreciated too.
Very comfortable and well presented.
Very comfortable and well presented. Just feels a bit like being in a goldfish bowl as there is not a lot of privacy.
Great quiet private location.
Great quiet private location. Handy to town, lovely views. Great clean well presented property, 5 star. Will return.
Ideal get away for a couple. Note, cleaning is included although you are expected to wash & dry your dishes.
Explore & discover 'back in time' Kawhia, nearby Aotea beach or good base for some day trips too. Raglan is an hours drive on scenic route ( some gravel), Waitomo Caves.
