Our family spent a Christmas here a few years ago. A home away from home no compromises only extras. Lovely location with water access. Great home with an American Hamptons feel by lack of a better description. Comfortable beds and a proper kitchen with a beautiful ocean view.

When our family arrived at this house, we cancelled all our plans to visit other towns and eat out. We just wanted to stay and enjoy this amazing house. Buy groceries in Whangarei and plan to eat in!
