Bike to the forest and mountain bike trails

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

Mountain Bikers Retreat, Self Catering, Redwoods

 The location was perfect for what my family and I were there for, for that weekend. I loved that there was a pool and spa and space around the side/ back of the house for the kids to run around and be entertained. Games room in the garage was awesome for the adults for us to just chill and have fun. Beautiful view from up on the hill, I recommend to anyone who is wanting to get away to a nice quiet scenic place, wither with friends and or family, this is the perfect place. 

Rotoiti Lakeside Lodge

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

BLACK HOUSE ON THE POINT: NZ's best Holiday House

 We had 2 families with 4 young kids each and they never ran out of things to do. Plenty of room for them to disappear from us adults but still be in a very safe environment. The location and scenery is beautiful and the house was big so we could spread out and presented to the highest standard. Our overseas guests were taken back with everything this place had to offer and it made us proud to be kiwis and showcasing our country. Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your property. 

Waikuta Lakeside Lodge - 4 Star Boutique Comfort

 Quiet 5 start retreat fit with comforts of home (fully furnished, kitchen, bbq) also the wonderful deck with spa overlooking the lake. Everyone enjoyed using the kayaks. The batch is far enough from town not to get the thermal smell however close enough to get into town also.We would definitely come back and stay again and would also recommend the batch to others. Our friends from California absolutely loved the batch and set the tone for their tour of NZ.
