Nature lovers' slice of paradise

 Ruapehucorner was once again the perfect location for our weekend of trail bike riding in the Tussock Buster. Our group of nine adults were very comfortable and warm in this lovely and charming house. We will be hoping to stay here again next year. Thanks. 

 Maytime Cottage Arrowtown

 Perfect location, perfect house, perfect holiday. Could not fault the cottage. We felt very at home and everything was there we could ever need. The whole group were blown away and it really made our holiday. Thankyou!

Stunning Mountain and Lake Views

 My family of 8 adults stayed here and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house has an amazing view and is very handy to Central Queenstown and the airport. It is well equipped, clean and tidy and provided us with everything we needed. We enjoyed the view while sitting having a glass of wine and nibbles at the large table on the front deck each evening. Home away from home! 

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. 

Beautifully Appointed Swiss Chalet

 Place was lovely, very comfortable and beautiful inside. Definitely would stay again
