5/5 Excellent

Spectacular is an understatement!
This place is amazing. One of the best holiday homes I've hired. Large deck with uninterrupted ocean views. 2 minute walk to the local cafe/restaurant. House has everything that you could need, it's modern and well equipped. Loved it.

5/5 Excellent

The photos really do not do it justice! The house and the views were amazing. We were all blown away when we finally arrived. I only wish we weren't busy the whole weekend so we could have enjoyed it more.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect stay at Maketu
