Private Piece of History, based in Ahuriri

 Perfectly appointed, perfectly sized, perfectly located! 

Classy cottage amongst the grapevines

 We have returned to Europe after a 3 month trip to New Zealand and this beautiful Cottage was one of the highlights of our whole trip. The kind and friendly hospitality, the very elegant accommodation, the settling 'in' the vines and the local advice that guided us to some great experiences, all made for a wonderful stay. If and when we can come back to NZ, we would love to stay again and enjoy a glass of wine sitting on the terrace with the two beautiful black Labs there for company. 

Stunning ocean-front beach house

 great house and fantastic location 

Panoramic beach front views

 Delightful bach on a huge sweep of beach. The glorious weather helped! 

Enjoy the sound of the birds among the trees

 A good basic accommodation, clean, tidy. The kitchen was well equipped as well as a BBQ. Lots of space and close to town. Sky TV and big screen was a plus. I would definitely come back! 

Rural Retreat in Havelock North

 Good central location to Havelock North and the local wineries which we were visiting. The property is very roomy and the location is country and very quiet.
