This classic kiwi cottage at the beach is the perfect spot to base yourself to escape and relax. There is a massive deck to relax on that has amazing views of Whale and White Island.
There is loads of space to set up tents for the kids or additional guests or to park a camper/caravan or boat.
It takes three and a half minutes to walk to feel the sand between your toes on the beach that is great for fishing and surfing.
