Stylish estuary-front bach

 This is a lovely house/bach in a most beautiful part of New Zealand. It is the perfect base for exploring Golden Bay. There is so much to see and so here and coming back to 'Two Tides' each day was always a delight. The bach itself has all you will ever need for a perfect holiday. It sleeps 4 comfortably and could stretch to six if you made use of the loft. Extremely well kitted out - including the best holiday reading material I have seen - you will want for nothing here. Utterly delightful.

Milnthorpe Cottage -Para Para -Golden Bay

 Lovely comfy bach. We had a wonderful time enjoying the beach, the kayaks, Milnthorpe forest and all of the Golden Bay area. It was great to see the ever changing views from the garden of the inlet and sea and let's not forget 'living in an Aviary' ;). Friendly owners and easy to deal with, recommended. 

Fantastic sea-front Bach

 We looked for a bach that is situated in a remote and spectacular place of the south island. It was a perfect place to have a rest and to explore the unique landscape of Farewell Spit! The bach is lovely furnished and we therefor felt very comfortable in this house. Thanks to you, Fred and Sarah, for enabeling this :-)
