We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Onu Bay Holiday House. We were a group of 8 and it suited us all in every way. Plenty of room, very comfortable beds, an amazing pool and the beach on the doorstep. The outdoor areas were great and it was lovely to have our own space. The house had everything we could ask for and more. The use of kayaks and snorkelling gear was great too. We hired a car for our stay but the island bus stop is out the front. We loved being able to walk to the bakery, little corner shop and even island night at a nearby hotel. We loved the snorkelling just in front of the house too. We would all recommend this wonderful house for people wanting a home instead of a hotel. Thank you Jo and Rick.
we stayed in June 6 adults and 4 small children. What a wonderful holiday! What a beautiful house! It far exceeded our expectations, we could not have asked for more.
Everything was provided, from the small, to the big. the bedrooms were great air con in all,huge living area and kitchen, barbecue area out the back was great big enough to do all our cooking at once.
the best of course was the pool and the beach if we weren't in the pool we were in the lagoon kids loved it.
Rick the manager was friendly helpful and coconut guru.
Bookings with Jo was easy and we were kept well informed leading up to our trip
We have just returned from our week staying at this wonderful house. There were six of us there celebrating our friends 25th wedding anniversary. We had such a great time and this house complete with pool has everything you could ever need. Thanks to Rick for always being on hand to answer our questions and also for bringing us our drinking coconuts every day. The beach is 40 metres away and you can drift off the sleep at night hearing the waves. We all highly recommend staying here. Great job Jo & Rick.
We have just arrived back to NZ today after 11 nights at this holiday home, there where 9 people in our group, and the house had more than enough space for us all to have our own separate rooms, There was everything and more to make for a fantastic holiday, The pool was amazing, and the outdoor area/deck , was fantastic for meals and sunset cocktails. not to mention only a few steps away from an amazing beach.
Rick who is the owner/ maintenance man lives in the unit next door, we were grateful for the pool and grounds to be kept perfect, that made this even more like our own piece of paradise . he was very friendly, and we enjoyed chatting and learning a little more about the island from his own experiences
.Due to the refurbishing happening at Sunset Resort and next door, Rick was very concerned that it was affecting our holiday, we understand that things need to be upgraded, and no time is ever a good time ,so this was not a concerned to us. We were so impressed with the recycling that the island is trying to enforce, that it was a pleasure to help.. We have already asked to pencil in for another holiday. and from what Rick has advise he has planned for the house, this can only make this already amazing house even better.. I am sorry that the previous review, hasn't done this property justice.
Can't wait to return. Thanks again Rick and Jo, you have both been amazing in helping us have an fantastic time. :)
What an amazing house, huge pool, crystal clear beach right outside the door & very comfy beds, this property I can't fault! but a little warning the landlord does live next door we felt like he was monitoring us everyday to the point of uncomfortable never a day passed with out him telling us off, for the most-stupidest-things-every! We would never stay here again knowing the landlord is living right next door.
