Leave the city life behind and come and relax in WhaleBay. Let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep after a hard day in the surf. The house is situated in the heart of WhaleBay with breath taking views of the World famous left hand point break . If the surf is not your thing , WhaleBay is situated at the base of MT Karioi which has some fantastic hikes or trail runs , which will reward you with views of up the coast to Port Waikato or South to Taranaki.

Response from Tom:
I would like to respond to your message publicly my rules are very clear , 15 extra people , when you have booked for 8 . I do not care that is kids extra , that is not fare to just arrive and say that is what is happening, gives me not chance as the home owner. Sorry you felt I was unfriendly but I was very concerned , you may think it is all right but I do not , best policy is to be honest and up front .
