Karamu Trail Track Farm Stay and Horse Trekking

 Amazing farm, beautiful view, comfortable, when I lived there I escaped to the heaven. Perfect place for refreshing your mind, renew your life and health. 

Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 Property is spectacular, location is perfect. Just far enough out of the main part of Queenstown to be peaceful but close enough to all the action as well (5min walk to the Shotover Jet, 10min drive to Q-town itself, 15min to Arrowtown) Kitchen/Dining room is a particular highlight, excellent for large family meals and opening out to the backyard for a very inclusive feel during meal times. Highly recommended for a family getaway. 

Valhalla - Stay Waiheke

 For 10 people, a house with 5 bedrooms/ en suite with the quality of the property, it was perfect for us. Plenty of room for us all to gather in but enough room to get lost if you wanted to. The property had everything we could have asked for and the views were stunning. 

BLACK HOUSE ON THE POINT: NZ's best Holiday House

 We had 2 families with 4 young kids each and they never ran out of things to do. Plenty of room for them to disappear from us adults but still be in a very safe environment. The location and scenery is beautiful and the house was big so we could spread out and presented to the highest standard. Our overseas guests were taken back with everything this place had to offer and it made us proud to be kiwis and showcasing our country. Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your property. 

Entertainers Dream,  Spa Pool, Fire Place,

 Great place all the girls loved it! Spa was beautiful and the bach was amazing everything was perfect. Only 1 minor problem was the bbq on the spa side doesnt work so it took us twice as long to cook on the other bbq other than that great place!! Highly recommend! 

Central Oamaru, great views of the town & sea

 The house was fantastic! Warm, very comfortable a fully equipped home. We slept really well! Will be back and will recommend to others.
