Tranquil rural location with mountain views

 Great holiday 

Lemonade Farm Cottage - with Outdoor Spa Pool

 Lovely place to stay - great dogs for walking and a lovely spa for the evenings 

Beautiful valley with mountain views

 Nestling in the foothills - a great base for exploring, tramping and fun on the beach. Spacious and bright house with great facilities and garden for kids to play in. 

Oka Cottage is a modern, self contained country  c

 This is a beautiful cottage, very spacious, in a delightful garden. Being in the country it is extremely quiet but close to nearby towns and shops. The pool is perfect, we couldn't recommend this property more highly. Thankyou. 

Kaiweka Farm Cottage

 Peaceful and quiet location. The farm is lovely and the cottage is perfect. Very clean and has all the necessary facilities. I can only recommend this place. We will surely return if we'll have the chance to visit NZ again! (And I will book a longer stay!) 


 Good spacious and clean accommodation. Great location and hosts were exceptional.
