Private Bush Retreat

 The perfect escape from the city, we had a wonderful long weekend here. Great walks, stunning views, and the spa bath were highlights. Cannot recommend the lodge and owner Larry enough. 

Classic Bach close to the beach

 Perfect place to relax and a base to explore the area from. Comfortable and private, thoroughly recommend as a place to escape to. 

Classic Bach close to the beach

 Location was good with easy access to lots of nice beaches. Large section so easy to accommodate extra guests in tents as necessary. 

TWIN PALMS 58C Tauranga Bay Beach Road NORTHLAND

 This property location was perfect for what we wanted and better than we had hoped for. Kids had a blast running around and the estury and beach so close. Wonderful memories and a great place and location to have a relaxing holiday 

Sand Castles - Mount Maunganui Holiday Home

 The house and location are amazing and it is a great place to stay. However, there needs to be a lot more crockery and cutlery - we invited friends for a BBQ but had to ask them to bring their own plates, knives and forks which was awkward. Also had to run the dishwasher all the time due to the lack of crockery and cutlery. 

Private Bush Retreat

 Fantastic stay in an amazing, unique, spectacular location. If you want to 'get away from it all' you really can't do better than this while still in the Wellington region. We arranged a helicopter ride up as a surprise for a friend, as there is a helipad next to the lodge. It worked out perfectly. The owner of Antler Lodge even referred us to a local pilot who gave us a great deal. Highly recommended :)
