Te Punga Lodge - The Perfect Year-Round Getaway!

 Loved everything about the property, well equipped, beautiful surroundings and even a one hole pitch and putt. A swimming pool would have taken it to a whole other level, but wasn't a major. Beds all super comfy, plenty of room for everyone and entertaining was a breeze in the super kitchen. Felt palatial yet very homely and comfortable. 

Luxury Bach langs beach 50m to white sand and surf

 We had a lovely stay at this property. The views are stunning and it was a very easy 3 minute walk to the beach. Everything in the property was new and of a very high standard.

 lovely house where we had a great and relaxing stay 

Waiamber Cottage, Russell - Bay Of Islands

 The house was great and the three levels provided good distance between baby, noisy older boys and mother in law. The beach and kayaks and life jackets were good fun and well used. Great kitchen and great views throughout. Lovely garden and grounds. There were two sky boxes which was great. Needs a DVD player though for the kids :)
