We rented one of the Bungalows at Mark's Place for 10 days. It was the ideal location for my boyfriend who wanted to surf. Every morning he'd roll a kayak and his surfboard down to the beach and paddle out to the break, where was a bouy were he could tie up the kayak. Dolphins jumped in front of his kayak and surfing towards the green mountains, was nothing short of magical. The bungalow was spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. My only complaint is the little worm-like insects that would crawl under the doors and got ALL over the place at night but we did want nature! We enjoyed the free bikes and used them to get around but I'd suggest renting a motorbike (if not a car) to fully enjoy the island. Mark was busy while we were there and didn't have much time to advise us on places to eat/visit but he was a warm and gracious host. We had no payment issues or conflicts.

The passes are breaks in the outer reef that surrounds the island. The break in front of Marks(Haapiti) is about 1km from shore. Its a very consistent break and can handle some size. It works on south swell generated from depressions that go under New Zealand. When the swell maxes Haapiti out go round to Taeme which works of big south swells that wrap round the island.
