Spectacular coastal and mountain views

 Lovely modern clean and warm home. Well equiped, the children loved the games provided. This was a great base to explore the Golden Bay attractions, with good suggestions of things to do provided by the hosts. Would certainly stay again if in the area. 

Paturau Beach paradise

 A great place for a family holiday - big safe outside area for the kids to play in, and so close to the beach and river. 

Excellent Modern Family Home -4 Bed/2Bath/Sleeps9

 Great stay. House was fantastic. Tarnia was great to deal with. This house is ideal for a family and was extremely clean and tidy. Would definitely stay here again. 

Large executive home with pool

 Great place to stay. The pool was perfect for the hot weather we had and the views were magnificent. 

***A Quiet Crowd Pleaser close to the Beach***!

 Great bach very well presented and in a great location - quiet but near the beach. The bach is very well set up - we particularly liked the wonderful living area and the great large deck. The only issue to be aware of is the mezzanine floor - good accommodation but reached up a very steep set of stairs/ladder. It worked fine for us with young adults - but would not be so good for oldies or the very young. We hope to visit again before too long 

Large Beachfront Home - Beach Break Rototai

 One of our greatest adventures yet! Such a stunning spot, ideal location and a super fabulous home. Was a perfect get-away for our group. Thanks!
