Private Luxury Accommodation for Two

 This batch is to die for, breathtaking views, private, comfy, modern, and just the perfect place for a quiet getaway. Hubby loved the telescope and looking at the craters on the moon. We will definitely be staying again! 

The Loft at Cypress Ridge Estate

 Stylish and spacious interior. Well equipped - except virtually no space for guest clothes - no drawers and tiny hanging space. Great views from windows and BBQ area 


 thoughtfully furnished with additional touches (fresh fruit, flowers etc) . Location is superb- coast walk right outside- but property is secluded, quite private, and quiet, 

Beech Hill Accommodation

 Gorgeous holiday house - simple, beautifully decorated, sparkling clean and very, very relaxing. Feels like you're away from it all but at the same time very close to lovely places to visit. Perfect place for a retreat but we also think the children would love it and will take them next time. 

Beech Hill Accommodation

 A really nice, secluded spot. 

Private Luxury Accommodation for Two

 What's not to LOVE about this location. Taranaki at it's BEST - An AMAZING place to stay, so modern. We enjoyed the views (mountain, countryside and sea). As it was set on a farm land it was so peaceful and private .... we will definitely be staying again...!
