Stunning views of Mill Bay

 Lovely location with great view. The property was immaculate and the owners catered for our every need. Clean, fresh, modern, comfortable beds, great shower and very welcoming. A real gem and great value for money. :-). Sue

 Great kitchen for self catering everything we needed. Comfy beds and a quiet location. Invigorating walk to and from the town. Loved it.

Private, Romantic Log Cabin with Stunning Mt Views

 Private, very clean! Just gorgeous! 

Wairoro Park 'the Point House'

 We had a wonderful stay with our dogs - we enjoyed relaxing on the property, taking in the beautiful views, and watching the Wekas run around the lawn. With Russell just a short drive, walk, or kayak away, we will definitely be looking to come back and stay again.
