Sunhaven is a great find. So tranquil and right on the beach. The sunsets were amazing and this is very close to lots of great restaurants and only 10 minutes to town for supplies. The rooms are very clean. Thanks Patti and Dennis.

Kia Orana joools2016, Glad we made your stay so enjoyable with no unpleasant noises to spoil the tranquil atmosphere of Sunhaven. One can spend hours watching the surf crashing over the reef.
