Since we where there last the units have all had new furniture and bedspreads. The units look awesome. It was a real pleasure to see the upgrade. As usual Deb made us feel really welcome. We stayed in Unit four which was lovely and clean.

Had three nights over the holiday period. Deb and Dave are great hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Walked the beautiful Rangiputa beach and went over the Pouheke which was spectacular. All in all had a very relaxing time.
