Quaint kiwi bach, a stroll from the beach

 Bach very private, clean, kid friendly and cosy. Close to beach. Would recommend Bach to others. Also affordable for families. 

Studio on Selwyn. Attractive Bach, close to town

 Lovely property. Very neat, tidy and clean. Had everything we needed. In a great location. 

Kauaeranga Valley Hiking Base

 Amazing location! And even though the owner's property is very close, you are definitely ensured your own privacy. Comfy bed, great kitchenette and well presented. Wouldn't hurt to take some aeroguard during summer, and take a good book too (no TV - which is a good thing). Approx. 10-15mins to town, and if you head up the Valley, it's about another 10-20mins to some really good walking/tramping tracks.
