My place looks over a beautiful ocean beach, the access is a couple of minutes walk from the house. Your room has views out to Whale Island, which is a protected bird sanctuary, while the living areas look out to Cape Runaway and a local headland called "The Heads" to the east. My house is modern, clean, light and sunny. It is excellent for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Whakatane is well known for its tours to White Island a live volcano not far offshore.
