Great place, clean, tidy and comfortable- especially the bed. It had everything we needed and we loved the sunny deck when we weren’t exploring the KarIkari peninsula or many nearby beaches. Just great, thank you 😊
We spent nearly three weeks in this little piece of paradise. The cottage is welcoming, exceptionally well-equipped, spotlessly clean, and most definitely has the promised stunning view of the ocean as well as a night sky filled with a million stars. We had mostly sunshine and blue skies & sparkling ocean with a few days of stormy weather for a change. The pool was lovely even on cool days. Kathy & Garry were the perfect hosts & we enjoyed our daily visits with the dogs! It's about a 40 minute drive to Kerikeri - a great town with a couple of nice walkways,- and a 2 minute drive to Mahinepua Beach & walkway. Matauri Bay beach is also not far and a perfect beach for walking, swimming, or boogie boarding. We recommend a boat tour of Whangaroa Harbour & perhaps the Lane Cove walk if you're feeling energetic.
