Our holiday homes have access to some of the most beautiful beaches in New Zealand. Swim, surf, or just relax and make the most of classic Kiwi beach life.
We really enjoyed staying here as the house is modern and well equipped with easy access to the beautiful safe beach. Having 2 bathrooms is great for the family and it is a safe, quiet and very friendly beach estate. The house has a large kitchen with great cooking facilities and a BBQ, with a large deck.
Kukumoa at the Beach
Fantastic, from the moment we did the booking, Wendy was fantastic. On arrival we were met with a fantastic location and a fantastic kiwi Bach that was equipped with everything you need for a fantastic holiday, pleasant surprise was crisp clean linen and white towels, the cutest Bach that obviously the owners are restoring with love. View is amazing and dinner on the deck is blissful. Bonus also was plenty of room for the Boat. Fantastic booking service, clean and restful Bach, highly recommend, we plan to return and return and return. FANTASTIC
We stayed at this Bach for our family Christmas. It was beautiful – the house itself was extremely clean and well presented. The location was perfect
