Raglan.Close to town, entertainment and sea

 The location is awesome, right next door to the park so great if you have kids. Close to the beach and to the township. The house is awesome plenty of room available if needed, nice clean and tidy and the owners are lovely people to deal with. My family really enjoyed our stay and would recommended to anyone wanting to get away to Raglan :)

Kiwi Bush Haven at Crindau Lodge

 We had a wonderful time at Kiwi Bush Haven. The location is serene and the accommodation suited our family of 5 perfectly. There was everything there that we needed to be self sufficient and it was very cosy and comfortable Keriann and Poppy were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome. The boys loved playing with Poppy too. We hope to visit your little piece of paradise again soon. 

Ohope Beach Paradise

 Fantastic location, house was well equipped and very comfortable. Would definitely go again! 

Akaroa Waterfront Seaside house on beach - perfect

 This is not a luxurious place, it is though exactly what we love, an awesome traditional Kiwi bach with excellent views and close to everywhere. So relaxing and warm that although we did get out, we spent most of our time playing drafts, charades and scrabble as well as just relaxing. The shower is good (a nice surprise) and it has everything one could wish for. We will definitely be going back.
