Location

Kawhia, Waikato, New Zealand

We are directly across the road from the seawall on the harbour's edge, so catching fish or swimming is readily accessible. There are no shops in Aotea, so you will need to come prepared for your stay. The closest town with a shop, pub and garage is Kawhia, about a 10 minute drive away.
