We stayed at Within the Bays for two nights, and it proved to be the perfect base for exploring the stunning Coromandel Peninsula. As soon as we drove up to the B&B, the hosts Hans and Annemarie came out to greet us and make us...More

Dear Vicky v, It was our pleasure to have you and your family at our place. It is for us always nice to see children so happy with the toys and in the Hobbit Hole. As you know: happy children, relaxed parents:>)
