The location is perfect, beachside you can hear the sea in your sleep.

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect, beachside you can hear the sea in your sleep. The chairs and fire pit on the beach is lovely.

The property is a little to far to stroll to town but is a short five minute drive.

The property has everything you need and the towels and bedding are lovely. The house itself is a typical kiwi bach, basic. All the instructions on the walls makes it feel like your in a hostel rather than a home. The shower is lovely and hot with good pressure. No complaints at all :)
