Crab Apple Cottage Martinborough

 Great location! Clean and tidy, well equipped. Lots of character. Would come back! 

Crab Apple Cottage Martinborough

 Great property with lots of room to spread out. A beautiful renovation of a 1920's cottage, loved the rustic wood floors. They do not skimp on the breakfast provided! We had eggs, bacon, a wonderful lemon cake, fresh fruit, bread, and several varieties of jams, and more! Would highly recommend! 

Fisherman's Rest- in magnificent Mercury Bay.

Fisherman's Rest- in magnificent Mercury Bay.

 What a place! Super!!! Thank you Chrissie for your hospitality and beautiful house. Highly recommended for familys with small kids- very safe :)))))) 

Taupo Lakehouse on Heuheu Street

 The house was very clean and welcoming. As we arrived very late at night, the security lighting was welcome and made accessing the property very easy. Fantastic view of the mountains and some of the lake from the deck and two of the bedrooms/lounge. Lovely home. Kids loved the selection of board games and the reclining seats in the lounge! Very central location. 

Classic kiwi experience

 Location was great, so handy to the beach which was lovely and quiet. The bach was great for the dog being fully fenced. There was a little road noise but that didn't bother us ... we enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the sky divers. Was a very relaxing and peaceful holiday, we'd like to visit again.
