THE ARROWTOWN WENDYHOUSE

 Fantastic property for our two families with two bedrooms upstairs and two down. Had absolutely everything we needed including toys and puzzles for kids and a greatly appreciated air conditioner (heat pump in winter) for some very hot days! Close to town and short walk to river. Great place. Highly recommend. 

Waikuta Lakeside Lodge - 4 Star Boutique Luxury

 The house itself is very comfortable and spacious, with large living areas, lots of space for everyone to have peace and quiet and large bedrooms. For our family of six it was perfect, with the deck, spa and lawn with the lake right at the edge of the property, but not deep so parents can relax while kids swim and kayak. Well presented and stocked house but not so fancy that you can't relax and enjoy being there. The beds were comfy and I loved the window seat with a book and drink. :-) 

Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 House is fantastic, with some great design features. Location is amazing, Surrounded by the mountains and easy to access all areas of interest. We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. 

Tui's Rest - Home away from home

 Had a great stay in Taupo. The house was spacious and comfortable for 10 of us. Has everything we needed and location is a short drive to main town centre. Highly recommended.

Kereru House - Stewart Island

 Very handy location to the town. Clean and warm and plenty of room. 2 x bathrooms (great). Will be back for sure and intend to bring more friends with me to experience your beautiful Island. Many thanks 

Karamu Trail Track Farm Stay and Horse Trekking

 The property is good, well maintained, quiet and self sufficient. The place is amazing for a summer getaway. Its a steal for the kind a price and experience they sell.
