Interaction with Guests
We leave this entirely up to the guests themselves. After the initial introduction and orientation tour of the unit, we encourage our guests to seek out our help/guidance should they need it, but we are aware that sometimes guests like to have time to relax and "catch their breath" particularly if they have been travelling constantly - so we like to respect their privacy.
Omokoroa is a friendly, beach area with reserves which allow easy access around the peninsular. There is some wonderful native birdlife to be spotted while walking the peninsular.
Smoking is allowed outside - please use ashtray provided - empty and wash each day. Please keep your internet useage for emailing and (website hidden) searches (no downloading of movies, tv programmes etc) as we do not have an unlimited supply of broadband.
