Large Beachfront Home - Beach Break Rototai

 House is very spacious and has all amenities. Good fire and plenty of fire wood also. Very private 

Large Beachfront Home - Beach Break Rototai

 Truly a 'Retreat'. Great house with interesting and quirky artwork, wonderfully spacious and comfortable, with direct access to miles of beach. 

Maitai Villa, Nelson City

 It was within walking distance to Nelson with plenty of walks in the area which is what our group was interested in. Have emailed Ian with a suggestion regarding the deck and passed on our comments to him. He was very good to deal with over the many months that I was arranging this trip. The daughter and son-in-law of one of our members who came up from Christchurch were very impressed with Maitai Villa and said that they would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to others.

Monaco Waterfront Villa

 Awesome location with great views plenty of space to relax and unwind with good facilities. 

Monaco Waterfront Villa

 Emaculately clean, lovingly looked after property. We felt like we were staying at the family bach, but it was spotlessly clean and every possible amenity was provided. Our new favourite place to stay by far. We hope to be back again because it was superb. I absolutely recommend this property. 

Large Beachfront Home - Beach Break Rototai

 A house with a soul in a beautiful location, directly on the beach. Ideal for a large group. The kitchen is very well equipped and makes cooking fun. Bedrooms in different sizes and standards and two spacious living rooms inside plus a large terrace looking out on the ocean. Overall a great experience!
