Contempory, sun-soaked Wanaka retreat

 Maytime Cottage Arrowtown

 What a great property, we will be back. Privileged to meet Greg the owner. This cottage is a must stay in this vicinity. Really handy to town and for us , the golf courses. All five of us will be recommending to our friends. The stone, Greg, front and centre as you walk in. Cheers Ian.

Blue Mountain Accommodation - Your Rural Retreat

 Absolutely fantastic property and location. Our whole group had a lovely weekend staying here. House is immaculate and has everything you need. The kids loved the space inside and outdoors and loved their ride on the ponies. Would highly recommend staying here anytime of the year and Heidi is a pleasure to deal with. We'll be back!
