    A slice of paradise

    We had an amazing time at this property and highly recommend. The house was modern, comfortable and spacious and had everything we needed. We loved spending our day at the beach and exploring to come back to a secluded and very relaxing setting... we will definitely visit again 🙂

    Just what we needed!

    After the stress and craziness of 2020, this was an oasis of calm and tranquility for my family and I. Quiet, private and extremely well appointed in a lovely setting near Mt Taranaki. Enjoyed feeding and interacting with the alpacas. Quick drive to Oakura beach. Cant rate highly enough and hope to return next summer!
