Gunado - a cosy kiwi bach.

 This was our 2nd stay at Gunado. It's fabulous. Charming bach in a wonderful location. Walking on the beach, kayaking in the estuary, collecting clams. Brilliant. 

Footprint Cottage, Ligar Bay

 Wonderful property and much nicer than the pictures suggest. I loved the beach style art work decorating the home. A quick, easy walk to the beach. 

Solabode - Golden Bay Holiday Home (Takaka)

 Great bach! Clean, modern facilities, eco-friendly, private sunny area, peaceful 

Beech Hill Accommodation

 Gorgeous holiday house - simple, beautifully decorated, sparkling clean and very, very relaxing. Feels like you're away from it all but at the same time very close to lovely places to visit. Perfect place for a retreat but we also think the children would love it and will take them next time.
