Breathtaking views of Whangarei Heads

 Location was fantastic - great for boating, shame about the fishing while we were there. The weather was also great - so thanks for organising that too. 

THE ARROWTOWN WENDYHOUSE

 Great location. Excellent for two families. Very well equipped. We will be back. Pam 

BLUE VIEW - Exclusive Harbour View Holiday Home

 Fantastic property with amazing views. Opononi remains (still) a quiet little place but with enough to do (dune boarding, Kauri walks, beach fun, fishing) to keep even restless children occupied. 

BLUE VIEW - Exclusive Harbour View Holiday Home

 Blue View Opononi is absolutely stunning. We held our (very small!) wedding reception here and guests could not stop commenting on the view, the interior and how gorgeous all the interior decorating touches were. My husband and I would very happily stay here again - it's perfect for families to share and the stunning Opononi sunsets are well worth the long drive from Auckland! Thank you so much for having us :) 

Large two level,  five bedroom County Villa

 Wonderful property for R and R. We loved the landscape, the cows, the elegance and the space. Te Aroha is a beautiful environment for a short break. The cycling on the Hauraki rail trail was easily accessible.
