The property was quite spacious and having two separate living areas (dining and lounge) and the indoor/outdoor flow worked well for us. The location was good.
Nice comfortable bach ,interesting area, definitely will be returning
Great place, warm cosy, great view, close to park, beach, walks. Fully fenced, so toddler safe - and a good lawn area to run about it. Also close to
Cafe and Mr Grumpy's (amazing burgers!!). And everything else to support a great stay. We had a great time relaxing and having fun - many thanks! Would easily look to come again!! :o)
Great little home away from home. Lovely and cosy, very clean and tidy. The real kiwi bach.
