First visited Purangi Gardens for my Daughters Birthday weekend in Feb 2014. Sooooooo relaxing, basic chalet,lovely and clean and made very welcome by our hosts,Sue and Rod.
Second Visit was a couple of Months later in March, this time brought my Son and his Girlfriend from Perth, Daughter again and future Son-in Law.Upgraded to Purangi house.Amazing!
Fully equipped,plenty of space( sleeps up to 10) and the views overlooking the Ocean and native bush, breathtaking.
Spent the whole weekend, kayaking ( free to use) then off to nearby Hahei beach and Cathedral cove for snorkeling with stingrays.stingrays. Didn't want to leave.
Now planning 3rd visit in August for Anniversary, this time taking Hubby and Friends new to New Zealand who haven't really seen much of our lovely country so far.Thought what better place to start.I've been here for 7 years so far and traveled quite a bit, but it says it all when this is the 3rd time this year.The scenery is out of this world, lots of things to do if, like me you love nature and the Ocean,plus its safe.Can't wait to visit again.
