The location was perfect - tranquil, scenic, quiet, but close to superb amenities in Oakura. In practical terms, the villa was immaculately clean and very thoughtfully equipped. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived.

Awesome setting, very nice hosts, basic accommodations but you cannot beat the setting at all. The beach is beautiful and relaxing, and the view from the villas is unbeatable. If you are looking for relaxation, this is it.

Would go back in a heartbeat!! Dave and Nuala made our visit extra special with their warmth and hospitality. Could have stayed there longer but we wanted to see the rest of the island. This was our favorite place on the north island!!

he villa was stunning ! Everything we needed was there and so clean and tidy. David and Nuala were lovely and you got the feeling nothing would be too much trouble if you needed help with anything. The setting was perfect and we only wished we could have spent more time relaxing at the Villa!”

We had a lovely short stay at the villas. Beautifully decorated. Very simple, but so tasteful and serene, with such character. Had a classically European feel. The history of the materials used to build the villas was very interesting and worth enquiring about. The hosts were super friendly and very welcoming. Would definitely return when next we visit NZ. Thanks...

Wonderful hosts, an idylic location and beautiful accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble for Nuala and Dave which made our stay perfect. Toasted marshmallows by the fire pit under the stars listening to the waves. A simple break away from it all with all you need to feel spoilt!

A marvellous venue for 8 tramping friends to use as headquarters while we explored the great Taranaki region. Helpful hosts, very comfortable villas/beds. amazing views, everything we needed. Easy access to the beach and not far to the local shops.

From the moment we approached Nuala about potentially getting married here everything was so smooth. We can't rate them highly enough. The food, the venue, the setting, everything was absolutely perfect. Our guests were totally blown away. All this at a very reasonable price. Thank you David and Nuala!

Nice beach to take a quick swim. Sheltered when it is windy. Did not visit the villas though. Little rocky at some places, but with low tide it's good for children to swim or paddle around, good view over OAkura beach
