A few days at this house were as good as they could possibly be. Idyllic setting, grass right down to the beach, non-stop water views with loads to see, pleanty to do and stay busy or simply put your feet up. Highly recomend booking this perfect escape.

Management response:

Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure hosting you and as you discovered this is a location like no other. We are sorry you had to return to the NE USA winter so soon but welcome you back with your family

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful Bach. Fantastic location and great Bach. Ideal for 2 people and a great base to be able to see the bay of islands. We will be back!
