Esplanade Residence 6 - Lake Front Queenstown

 This was our second stay at Esplanade 6. The apartment was as expected - quiet, roomy, clean and tidy with everything needed to make our stay enjoyable. Walking distance to town. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Queenstown. 

Modern Kakanui Beach House

 This Bach is excellent, the view especially for sunrise is amazing. The Bach is clean, well equipped and has good heating. Its a short walk to one of the best beaches and rock pools in New Zealand. We cannot wait to return. 

Eight on Walmer- Quiet & Peaceful

 Great location with excellent facilities. Ideal for a couple or group. Near to the coastal walk and golf courses and there are shops and restaurants nearby. We have now stayed twice and would without doubt go again in the future. New Plymouth is only a short drive away.
