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. 


 Property was nice and cozy. Best suited for 5 guests. It would be nice to have a washing machine (dryer is there), but otherwise the place was just great for our family! 

Beautiful valley with mountain views

 A tranquil setting creating a relaxing stay with more than enough for the kids to do!, walks, rivers, beaches an easy 30 minutes drive away, this was the break we wanted and got, loved it! 

Self catering farm cottage

 We thought we were going to be too far from Nelson when we arrived at this gorgeous bach, but after a few minutes we didn't give a hoot. This is our favourite bach so far. From the profusion of roses in the fragrant garden (which you are allowed to pick and bring inside) to the comfy beds, bicycles and well-equipped kitchen, everything is considered and catered for. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much!
