Modern Cottage with Stunning Views & Spa Pool

 Well presented and a relaxing place to stay 

Clevedon Villa Living at It's Best! Peace & Quiet.

 Absolutely stunning villa in a beautiful relaxing setting. We stayed for a week and loved it. The property has a lovely outlook onto a big garden and country views beyond. The villa is luxury throughout, very comfy bed and big leather sofa. Also plenty to keep you entertained nearby including fantastic markets and beaches nearby. Highly recommended!

 Had a great stay. Lovely view and great location. Will definitely stay there again. 

Luxury Retreat Apartment

 Our stay at Albacore Lodge was most enjoyable so much so that if we hadn't been committed elsewhere we would have happily stayed on for a few more days. Maraetai and surroundings are beautiful places to explore. The apartment was excellent and a couple of minor suggestions were quickly taken on board. Thank you both for your friendliness, helpfulness and sharing your lovely home. We do hope that one day you will visit us. Carolyn & Michael Seadon
