## REVIEWS ##
“We had a fantastic stay at Akama, we had three families staying in the house and there was so much room to accommodate everyone, the owners have made sure the house is well equipped and comfortable, the house is very centrally located with everything you need at the local shops, we would thoroughly recommend staying here and we have.”
“This house is just superb, with the perfect blend of privacy, luxury and the feeling of a lazy beach holiday all rolled into one. After spending his mornings fishing at the Lake with Dad, our son spent his afternoons lazing in the pool, while we enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck.. overlooking filtered views of the Lake and beyond to the sea. It was heavenly and we cant wait to stay there again.”
For those wanting to enjoy still waters instead of the open ocean, Smiths Lake is the number one choice in the Pacific Palms area. Shrouded by a lush littoral forest and neatly separated from the sea by Sandbar Beach, this is a family favourite for those eager to enjoy a spot of water-skiing, boating, paddling or windsurfing (the open lake waters making for a windsurfers dream!). With an impressive catchment area spanning 32 square kilometres and waterways of 11 square kilometres you can enjoy all the benefits of this unique, tucked-away calm waterway. However, should you feel a pull for the waves, the picturesque Cellito Beach can be accessed via a boardwalk at the northern end of Sandbar Beach.

We loved the property there was plenty of room for all 8 of us, it was our Ladies annual catch up. The kitchen and living space was great for socialising, we loved the bar fridge and the spaciousness of the house especially the bedrooms being away from the main living area. The outlook from the house decks is just lovely and so is the native birdlife !
"One of the best holiday homes we've stayed in. It fit 6 adults and 6 kids comfortably, The kids had their own lounge area as did the adults. 3 beds with 3 baths, a bedroom for kids and more bed space for even more kids - what more could one ask for. We spent most mornings and evenings sitting on the deck overlooking the lake. The modern home coupled with the tranquility of the surroundings makes this an ideal holiday spot, The swimming pool was an absolute bonus!!! Highly recommend Akama. Make it your next holiday home!"

"We have just had a fabulous time at Akama! The whole family loved it! The kids loved the pool and there was so many things provided to enhance our stay. The house is modern and very well maintained.

Great stay at Akama, our family loved it "Owners have thought of everything! We celebrated my mom's 70th, cooked a fab meal for 3 generations of family to celebrate, kitchen had everything we needed. Kids loved the pool, toys, games & watching movies downstairs in the rumpus. Adults enjoyed the deck, watching multi coloured birds swooping .. Smiths Lake was awesome for the whole family, we'll be back."
Fantastic Property "We went for a girls weekend away and it was fantastic. So much room and great entertaining decks. The house has everything you need and a great pool to cool off in. And not to far from anything - shops, beach & Bowling club."
Amazing home!! "We really enjoyed our stay, amazing location and the house was perfect for our hoilday. Would definitely come back again and again"
Awesome place, we all loved it! "Our family had a lovely relaxing few days at Akama, chilling in the pool, walking across to the lake where the dog swam while we fished & kayaked. Planning a week here next time"
Lovely place "We loved the property. Thought the pool, table tennis table and kayaks were a great addition. Kitchen and other facilities were great. Only downsides were the squeaky double bed in the bunk bed, the dead bird on the balcony with unmentionables and the confusion about what linen to bring. Other than that it was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will highly recommend it to others."
Fantastic Property! "House was absolutely perfect! Was very clean and everything we needed was provided for. The views from the balcony and also the pool were stunning, everyone loved swimming and being able to look out to a view! The area was super quiet, great for relaxation, and only a short walk to the lake. Would definitely recommend and stay again!"
Fantastic Stay and Even Greater Property! This place was fantastic! Spotless on arrival and fit our group so well, there was so much room! The pool was smaller than we initially thought, but swimming with a view was so relaxing and we loved it nonetheless. Would love to come back!
