Stunning panoramic views from relaxing town-house

 Lovely to sit on the balcony and enjoy the views 

Ohiwas' Best Bach,Clean,Cosy & Private.

 This bach is set in gorgeous, peaceful and private surroundings. It is very well-stocked, comfortable and homely. Close to many attractions and not far from Whakatane, Ohope and Opotiki. With fishing almost at your doorstep, what more could you ask for.

Herb's Place, St Arnaud

 Good place to stay. We enjoyed everything - the fire and puzzles and waking up to kaka call. We will definitely stay again. No washing machine - but i mustn't have picked that up when I booked it.

 Wonderful view from the terrace over the lake. Property extremely well equipped, if a little shabby in places, but very clean and comfortable.
