Central Beach Front Apartment

 This property is gorgeous. The location is perfect and the kids and I had a wonderful time. 

Estuary Edge Family Home

 Ella what a great spot for a batch. We felt really blessed to share your the view, enjoy the estury and the wonderful relaxed atmosphere at your batch. Our family thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Spacious living area, and ample deck. Enough room for everyone to sleep very comfortably. The real treat was the warm outdoor shower. Such a great idea, we didn't need to drag the sand and half the beach inside, simply cleaned up outside. There is something nice about showering outside, felt like Fiji. 

2 Bedroom - Bay Vista Apartment/Ocean Views

 Beautifully located property in very nice condition. Great views and close to shops. The availability of a secure car park just outside the main entrance was much appreciated. We would happily stay there again. 

~ Koru Cottage ~ Romantic Riverside Hideaway

 The location, the spa pool, the facilities, the river - pretty much everything! 

Tasmangreen Studio - Self contained accommodation

 From the spotlessly clean, guest-friendly arrangement of this property to the elegant taste in linens to dish ware, from the thoughtfully equipped kitchen to the lovely, spacious shower room, this rental was a highlight of our NZ visit. We relished the beautiful garden surrounding the gleaming studio. Above all, the warm hospitality of the hosts and their informative suggestions made this perfectly located rental a gem- and happily we were even able to extend our stay there! Outstanding! 

Sun, Sea, Sand and Surf with super views
