5/5 Excellent

Delightful bach
We loved our stay at this property. It was in a great location - really close to the beach but in a quiet street, and walking distance to the 4-Square and cafes. The bach has been renovated in a delightful way, with lovely bright colours, comfortable furnishings and carpet, and neat retro pieces that complement the relaxed Kiwi-beach-holiday feel. Our hosts were excellent communicators and provided clear and useful notes for the property and the local area. We'd love to come back for another stay!

5/5 Excellent

Good Location and Property
The property is well looked after and has everything you need., good back yard for the kids to play in when not t the beach. Location is great a minute walk to the beach and a nice stroll along the beach to cafe/bars and four square.

5/5 Excellent

Great Spot
This was a lovely book a bach, well set up and beautifully considered. Its proximity to the beach and the Olde Beach area was great. It was also useful to have a second living area where the kids could watch a movie while family popped round for a cuppa. Many thanks Jeff and Christine for a lovely stay!

5/5 Excellent
