Fantastically comfortable warm welcoming stay. Hosts went out of their way to make us feel part of the community and part of their extended whanau. Being right in the community and virtually right on the beach front made everything perfect for our stay.

Nau mai! Haere mai! Welcome to Te Poutapeta/The Post Office, a Historic Places Trust listed building situated in a delightful Maori seaside village. Situated only 50 metres from the beach, our quality More home is fully self-contained. There is a large, comfortable, warm family living area to relax in with three tastefully decorated bedrooms. Take long relaxing walks or a horse trek along our sandy bay and over the surrounding hills. Go fishing off the beach or from the historic Tokomaru Bay wharf or just retreat and read in a perfectly relaxing environment. Peka mai! Less
