Great little bach off the beaten track with awesome views of the sunset over Taranaki just a couple of minutes walk back up the access road. Lots of sun and space. The very welcoming hosts placed no restrictions on arrival times and left lots of notes around the place to help us understand how everything worked.
You do need a car to get around but it's only a short drive to a really beautiful local beach at Onaero, 20-30 minutes to New Plymouth or 40-50 minutes out to the much larger but busier surf beach at Oakura. Loads of good food & drink in the area too (e.g. visit the Waiau Country Estate in Onaero if open; Social Kitchen, Monica's and Ozone in New Plymouth; don't miss Kin & Co on main road at Oakura).
