My school friend and I, now 65, visited Ahu Ahu Beach villas for a chance to catch up on old times and to explore the Taranaki area. We were enchanted by the rustic style of the villas and the quality of the furnishings and linen. There is a window seat looking out towards the wide sea view where we sat and talked for hours enjoying the sunset and watching the bird life hopping around on the grass. It is a quiet, relaxing setting.
It was a short walk down to the rugged west coast beach where there were few people, a lone fisherman, a couple walking their dog and some horse riders cantering along the sand.
A great place to get together with friends and enjoy a special part of New Zealand.
