"Tui,s Song" Holiday Home

 great for a large crowd. Close to Leigh and the Beach. 

Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This is a property with some wow factor, in an incredibly quiet location with stunning views. A real pleasure to stay here, and the ideal location for some R&R. Property owner was a friendly fella to deal with too.

Oneroa Beach front .Cosy in the winter by the fire

 Beautiful location with easy access to beach and restaurants. 

Fun at the beach for a family (or two!)

 Beautiful, spacious, well equipped, comfortable property in a great location. Excellent for our extended family for a weekend away. We all especially loved the spa pool - an extra treat in an already superb house. Hope to return in the future.

Fabulous Fosters Bach

 The bach was exactly what we needed, had great amenities, and was in a superb location. There is so much to explore and take in, just from the backyard. The perfect spot to relax and unwind. Absolutely enchanting.
