Large Downtown Family 5 Bdrm Residence-Full site

 Great location and lots of room for a large family or group. 

Bike to the forest and mountain bike trails

 Great place to stay for a mountain biking vacation, large rooms, tidy comfortable house. 

Lake Tarawera - Lakefront bach

 I'm a bit reluctant to say how good this place is for selfish reasons. This place is a real hidden gem... Beautiful views of lake, lovely kitchen and spa. Thanks for sharing, we can't wait to return next summer. 

Large family beach house

 We had a great time and the bach is very well set up for a large group. Its clean and tidy and everything you need is on hand. Close to beach and shops and in a lovely new part of town.
