Well located and very comfortable

 While the house was quite a way from town (about a 20 min walk), for us that was part of the attraction. It was really quiet, had a lovely garden to relax in and had very comfy beds. 

Alpine Retreat - Alpine Avenue - Mountain Views

 Everything is perfect. However, we were quite disappointed with the hot water supplied. The hot water was only enough for doing a few dishes and two short showers. And the rest of the day, the water was not heating up at all until next morning. 

The Loft at Cypress Ridge Estate

 Stylish and spacious interior. Well equipped - except virtually no space for guest clothes - no drawers and tiny hanging space. Great views from windows and BBQ area 

Outstanding in Oneroa, Waiheke Is. *INCLUDES CAR*

 The location is wonderful with view from virtually all rooms. The house is well equipped and immaculately clean. Walking distance to the beach and the provision of a vehicle is a real value-add. We would highly recommend Outstanding in Oneroa and will definitely be back.

Lakeside Maisonette, Queenstown

 Location is incredible. 10 minutes out of the chaos of Queenstown towards Glenorchy. Overlooking the brooding mountains edging Lake Wakatipu. Completely private. Windows as walls. The property itself is like a Grand Designs project. I loved the care and attention to design and style. It has a minimalist feel, but somehow a homey feel too. (I think the chickens and beehives add to that sense). The wifi was great. (Imperative to our stay combining work and holiday).

 thoughtfully furnished with additional touches (fresh fruit, flowers etc) . Location is superb- coast walk right outside- but property is secluded, quite private, and quiet,
