Two storey unserviced appartments, bedrooms and shower upstairs, lounge, dining, toilet, kitchenette and single bed downstairs. Shared laundry, clothes line, bbq & fish smoker all onsite. Everything you need for a family holiday. Already booked...

Since we where there last the units have all had new furniture and bedspreads. The units look awesome. It was a real pleasure to see the upgrade. As usual Deb made us feel really welcome. We stayed in Unit four which was lovely and clean.

Parking is on sandy ground, not concrete. On entering apartment (more like a cottage) the carpet was sticky underfoot. Bedroom upstairs, bathroom downstairs. Bed had hairs...

Had three nights over the holiday period. Deb and Dave are great hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Walked the beautiful Rangiputa beach and went over the Pouheke which was spectacular. All in all had a very relaxing time.

Arrived for a short break on a weekend of stormy weather. Room was clean & linens good quality, bed very comfortable, hosts were friendly and helpful and extremely generous. Had a good couple of days exploring and walking at bargain basement prices. Would recommend.
