I can only describe this place as wonderland. We have just had the most amazing week end At Te Mahia for 40 plus people for Nigel's 70th. It is situated on the waterfront and all apartments face that way. The water laps the steps at high tide and you go to sleep with the gentle noise of the waves. All the apartments are very well serviced and many of them have three bedrooms with extra beds so can easily accommodate several families...they also all have balconies overlooking Kenneperu Sound. There are two fabulous luxury apartments which also have balcony s looking out to the Sound and fully equipped. But all the apartments are great and you only have to turn around and get the magical view over the Sound. The kayaking is fantastic..the shop has the most amazing coffee...and Jann makes fabulous Pizzas to order. There are also gourmet dinner selections from her freezer. Mine Hosts..Trevor and Jann are naturals at running this place and I actually thought I was at their party! We had a marquee on the water front lawn and Jann decorated it beautifully with two fabulous urns of flowers and all the extra bits..we have had a letter from one of our guests that said they felt that they had landed in wonderland for the w/e. the walks around are magical..waterfall bay ..and queen Charlotte track are on your doorstep. It has to be an absolute must stop for anyone visiting that area of The Sounds. We will definately be back.
