Herb's Place, St Arnaud

 A really cute place that has a genuine bach feel, and is great value. I'd go again! 

Nelson/Monaco Holiday Home

 House had everything we needed as a base for day trips. The boys loved the bunk beds 

Kakariki Bach by the beach

 We loved everything about Kakariki Bach... a lovely house, fantastic location near the beach, huge yard, eels in the creek at night, wood pigeons in the plum tree, so many useful condiments in the pantry and comfortable beds. Thank you to the owners and manager. Our one concern was that the floor hadn't been cleaned at all after the previous people had stayed. Could be worth typing up a bullet-point "Cleaning list" that guests can use as they clean up.
