2013 Gold Piwa Best Setting ~ Castaway Cottage

 We had an amazing time at Castaway Cottage. Fantastic location. Cottage was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Diane (the manager) was extremely organised and friendly, and very helpful. Would love to come back here again 

Cosy Straw Bale Studio near vineyards and Square

 Great location being close to town and a short walk to a number of the wineries. The breakfast provisions were lovely and I'd definitely stay here again! 

Beautifully Appointed Swiss Chalet

 Our accommodation was perfect. It was very clean and tidy, handy to town & had comfy beds:-)!! 

Estuary Edge Family Home

 Ella what a great spot for a batch. We felt really blessed to share your the view, enjoy the estury and the wonderful relaxed atmosphere at your batch. Our family thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Spacious living area, and ample deck. Enough room for everyone to sleep very comfortably. The real treat was the warm outdoor shower. Such a great idea, we didn't need to drag the sand and half the beach inside, simply cleaned up outside. There is something nice about showering outside, felt like Fiji. 

Hatepe, Kowhai Cottage

 We enjoyed the whole property and lived it's close vicinity to our other family members.

Tasmangreen Studio - Self contained accommodation

 From the spotlessly clean, guest-friendly arrangement of this property to the elegant taste in linens to dish ware, from the thoughtfully equipped kitchen to the lovely, spacious shower room, this rental was a highlight of our NZ visit. We relished the beautiful garden surrounding the gleaming studio. Above all, the warm hospitality of the hosts and their informative suggestions made this perfectly located rental a gem- and happily we were even able to extend our stay there! Outstanding!
