We stayed here not long after Cyclone Yasi had gone through. The trees were just beginning to have some growth appear on them and there was some sand still on people's front lawns and down the side of the roads, but at Taihoa - everything was normal. Tracey and her grounds people had obviously worked very hard to get things right. These units are a delight - spacious, nicely appointed and exceptionally clean and well maintained. Tracey is a quiet and unobtrusive host striking the right balance of helpful conversation, checking that we had everything and then leaving us to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We had the place to ourselves, BBQ'd around the pool for the first night and then cooked on the hob inside the next. There is everything you need to cook a simple but enjoyable meal. Shops are a wee distance so take in everything. There are eating places around but we just wanted to relax and not have to get changed to go out. The pool was great - spent some hours just reading and relaxing. The beach is divine - a huge long stretch of sand and water. The sound of the sea at night was very soothing. There were very few people on the beach, some fishing with a net and they didn't have to go far off shore to get several. Highly amusing to watch - a cold beer in one hand, wading out with the net in the other! We would definitely go back there, we only had allowed two nights here but to get the mix of walks, swimming and relaxing right we would try for at least four nights next time.
