. So warm and cozy. So nice to watch the boats and see all the birds. Very peaceful and relaxing. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful spot.

Stayed May 2020

Wonderful relaxing family weekend away. Kids had a blast with all the games, toys and DVDs. Beds were comfortable and had excellent views. House was clean and well organised. Despite it being June we had lots of sunshine and with the log burner it felt like summer in the house! Third house we have booked with Bachcare in the last 12 months, as usual everything was a breeze, from booking to check out!

A lovely property with good indoor outdoor flow. Well set out with easy beach access

Stayed December 2019

Stayed for 7 nights with 2 families. Nice views to the water, plenty of space for 7, comfortable beds. The kids enjoyed using the supplied kayaks. We also had our inflatable boat, although it was difficult to launch from the adjacent campground due to a lot of driftwood and the soft silty beach. Unfortunately we had a lot of rain and windy weather during our stay. The remote for the Freeview TV was missing at first, but a new decoder with remote was sent to us a few days later and after we connected it, it worked fine. Contrary to the description, free WIFI/internet wasn't available. There is also no mobile phone reception. We also had a brief power cut and no tap water on our last day. We had to fill the toilets with buckets of muddy water taken from the garden. The access to the property was getting very muddy from the heavy rain.

Thanks for your review Bert. Our apologies that you experienced issues during your stay at Ngaire's Haven, however we are glad that your Holiday Manager was able to assist you. The WiFi at the property is now back up and running. Water conservation at properites on tank water is very important in summer to ensure the tank doesn't run dry. While we cannot control the weather, we hope to welcome you back in the future for a sunnier stay!

Ngarie's Haven is an amazing spot - truly idyllic and the view from the living room is beautiful. The highlight of the stay was when a pod of dolphins swam past the bay just a short distance offshore!
