Holiday on Henare, Olde Beach Waikanae.

 It is a really family friendly home at the same time providing opportunity for individuals to have time on their own if they would like it. There is lots of space for kids - the bikes and bats are great as well as board games and DVDs for all. The location is just a short walk from the beach, good coffee and a great bakery. Playgrounds are very close and Nga Manu is well worth a visit. The kitchen is well equipped and can accommodate several people at a time - makes for a great holiday. 

Perrow street, Wanaka township

 Plenty of room, nice quiet area, clean & tidy, modern.
