Wainui Beach Magic - Peace and Privacy

 Was so close to beach. Lots of space. 

Wainui Beach Magic - Peace and Privacy

 Great location, peaceful, no frills and had everything we needed. Only one regret - we should have booked a longer stay...but we'll be back :-) 

Rotoiti Cottage - St Arnaud

 Our hosts provided great info about local things to do. Loved our week-long stay at Rotoiti Cottage. The cottage had all the facilities we needed and a fantastic location close to the lake. Recommend kayaking & fishing on the lake, gold panning at Louis Creek and Lyell Creek, plus water taxi to the lake head and walk back (3 hours or so). Hamish is your man at the lake front by the campsite for water activities on the lake. 

A swimming and boating haven

 Great wee hoose in a good location - easy walk to beach or shops. Very clean & tidy with all you need for a great holiday. Would definitely visit again - thank you.
