This was our second stay at Te Vakaroa and again didn't disappoint. A beautiful scenic relaxing place to stay with friendly helpful staff. Couldn't recommend it highly enough for couples wanting to get away for a quiet time without kids.

I would like to extend my gratitude for your kind words and I am delighted you came and stayed with us again. Kind regards...

Things started well when Chad picked us up from the airport. We mentioned to him that we were hoping that Brisbane Broncos would be on tv when we arrived at the villa. He came in, called a mate to see what channel it would be on and put it on our tv for us 👍. With regards to the villa,...
