Rotoiti Lakeside Lodge

 Great place in a great location. The property has everything needed for a comfortable stay. We will be back! 

ACCOMMODATE OVER 2O - ABSOLUTE OCEAN FRONT.

 What's not to like about this property? We had a large number of us attend and we had no issues with room as this property can cater to large groups for sure. The property had everything we needed so wasn't any need to venture out which was great. Great memories made at a great location. The view from the deck was amazing. Many hours spent just sitting enjoying the view! 

Papamoa Beachfront Beauty

 The house was lovely with great views and sea breeze. Absolutely loved the location and had so much fun fishing and kayaking. 

Papamoa Beachfront Beauty

 Lovely spot overlooking the beach 

Amazing golf course views in a quiet cul-de-sac

 Beautiful big house with everything you could need for a family holiday. Clean and tidy. Nice area with secure fenced garden and parking. Main benefit for us was being able to have the dog there. 

Stilwaters Lakeside Retreat

 This house is amazing for large groups with it's many bedrooms and living areas and it has plenty of character too - love the zen garden in the old pool! The kitchen has everything you need for a large group - plenty of coffee plungers, large pots and serving dishes, glasses, plates etc - and if you have kids (we didn't) there would be plenty to keep them entertained too with toys, multiple tvs & lounges as well as plenty of board games in the cupboards. I'm sure we'll be back!
