Villa Pacifica - Single Unit2 - Free car/transfers

 Great stay. Magnificent views 

Great Kiwi Bach - Pet Friendly

 Great Bach, excellent and safe for the kids. Short walk to the beach 

Delightful rural cottage with mountain views

 Lovely quiet location 5 minutes from Arrowtown in a secluded rural setting. Owners Jane and Roger were exceptional hosts with a wealth of information on all activities in the area. The cottage was well appointed with distance views of Coronet Peak, and was like a home away from home. Attention to detail was displayed throughout - noted and appreciated. Had a stroll through the orchard and picked a few ripe plums, delicious!. Thank you for a wonderful stay we hope to come back in winter. 

Villa Pacifica - Single Unit2 - Free car/transfers

 I have rated this property (5) on the basis of what it is intended to be and that is a hide-away - very well appointed - clean, modern, quiet and tidy one bedroom unit with absolute fantastic views. As such, in travelling throughout NZ for nearly 3 months - this unit at Villa Pacific is one of the best. And having a motor vehicle provided, at no extra cost just enhanced our stay. Will we return, definitely, we are already planning another stay
