Emerald Cottage Papamoa Beach NZ

 Perfect place for a holiday 

Peaceful Comfy Farm Cottage Handy Town/Action

 The cottage are very well equipped. It's a good thing to be outside the town (just 12 minutes) because it's so quiet and peaceful. The manager and the owner are so nice and I want to thank you for your hospitality. Very good tips and advises. The best value for money ! Hight recommended ! 

Mereden - Fabulous Central Waterfront Location

 Excellent family place, perfect location and we would love to come back and use kayaks when weather is better ?? 

Orchard Seaview Bach

 Quiet standalone cottage with views over farmland to the ocean about 1km away. The ocean was close enough that you could hear the dull roar of the surf at night. The cottage was very bright, due to the large number of well-placed windows. The bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Although we didn't use it, the wash machine was a nice bonus. 

Holiday Bach Holdens Bay

 My second stay at this Bach, the property is ideal for dogs! Great big yard at the back, fully fenced! The place has all the things you need for a great stay, with your four legged friends! Great access to dog exercise areas, both off and on- leash. 

Tranquil Peaceful Farm Bach Farmstay Rotorua

 Shearers Retreat was cosy comfortable and so peaceful, no traffic noises and handy to Rotorua.
