What a great place to stay. The chalet was fully self contained with a stove top and microwave oven.It's a five minute walk to the beach and cafés.Unlike Tata beach Pohara has dog exercise areas. Hayley and Steve are great hosts.

We want your stay to be excellent value and unlimited wi fi is also free of charge. There are also yoga classes in our hall twice a week and we have our own purpose-built massage room where various treatments are available from experienced therapists.
