Luxury Retreat Apartment

 As above. 

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

 This is a hidden gem in the heart of the countryside with outstanding views looking out to Waiheke Island and the Coromandel Peninsula. 

Modern Cottage with Stunning Views & Spa Pool

 Suitable comfortable accommodation for the two of us, good if you want a weekend away, easy walk down the hill to the beach. Not quite a private feel with close proximity to main house, but not of concern to us. 

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

 This is a beautiful villa in a secluded, relaxing area with a magnificent outlook. We were so grateful to our warm and kind hosts who were so helpful and welcoming to our small children. We would definitely recommend this home.
