About
Description
Driftsand Boutique Accommodation is nestled along the surf beach of West End Ohope. This part of the beach is wonderfully sheltered and warm, alongside a pohutukawa-lined Ohope hill, a blaze of scarlet in the More summer. The huge expanse of white sand stretching for 11km offers fantastic sea views across to the East Cape. From the units, it is less than a minute's walk to the water. Tariff: (2 persons) from $150-$220, $25 per extra person. Negotiable for longer stays over 2 days. Less
