The Loveshack.Romantic secluded lake front cottage

 The Love Shack was an amazing place to stay. Beautiful location, very quiet and relaxing, but close enough to Rotorura that you could still do lots of site seeing. The batch is a wonderful, tranquil place. Perfectly appointed with anything you would need. Had coffee on the deck each morning and listened to the tui birds sing and watched the black swans on the lake. Great fun kayaking. Thousands of brilliant, amazing stars at night. I have never experienced anything like it!! 

Magnificent Secluded  Beachfront Studio Property

 Modern well appointed accommodation. The property being secluded is a very peaceful place to stay. We loved the views across Aotea Harbour from the house and it is a great area to explore. It was nice to relax on the deck in the mornings and evenings. 

Phoenix Studio - Romantic Beach Retreat

 Well appointed studio which was located a short walk to the beach. Very personalised approach by the owner with very good recommendations on restaurants, wineries and the like. Access to a car for our stay was a great benefit. The location of the studio was fantastic for enjoying Waiheke Island.

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! 

Studio 33.  Sunny and spacious by Oneroa Beach.

 Super location, handy to beach and cafes. 

Romantic luxury self contained cottage

 This is a beautifully renovated old cottage that preserves the original style along with modern conveniences. Everything was nicely done and everything you need is provided. A nice breakfast basket was provided. The location is far enough from town to be quiet and relaxing but close enough if you want to eat out or visit other parts of the Wairarapa. We had a lovely time and highly recommend it.
