Brand new Bach on Benn - perfect in every way!

 Beautifully appointed, amazing location, lovely owners, would recommend to anyone 

Amélie Rose - A stylishly furnished 1910’s cottage

 Lovely house, very close for weddings at Brackenridge. Appreciated the small touches - bread and milk and great to have Sky to watch the Black Caps!

Afforable luxury accommodation

 Clean, adequately equipped and private. The Villa allowed you, from every aspect, to experience/enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the Bay of Islands. Easy access to safe, local beaches (can highly recommend Long Beach) and the town of Russell...ideal for young families. We didn't want to leave!! 

Absolute waterfront real Kiwi bach - sleeps 4

 stayed for a week and will definitely be back again, the bach was very clean and tidy and had everything that we needed, And if your into flounder fishing I would definitely suggest you take a floundering spear as it's a lot of fun. 

Brand new Bach on Benn - perfect in every way!

 A very well presented property. Recently completely re-furbished. Tasteful, comfortable with every facility one could want. It was great to have linen and cleaning as part of the package. The bach is in a lovely location, very close to the lake with a restful bush outlook and a peak of the lake. A very special place in NZ, peaceful and quiet but still only 15 minutes from town. 

Sea La Vie - Luxury Accommodation

 A perfect studio for our weekend away. Highly recommended.
