Milnthorpe Cottage -Para Para -Golden Bay

 We had a great time at Milnthorpe Cottage. The location, right on the inlet, is great, and provides good access to the rest of the Bay which we enjoyed exploring. We all enjoyed the swimming and kayaking (have 2 kids aged 12 & 14). The house was just what we were hoping for - it has a nice bachy feel to it which we appreciated - and feels very private even with 2 other houses on either side. We hope to come again! 

Romantic Farm Cottage. Affordable Luxury.

 A lovely well presented cottage. The location is great for a quiet and relaxing holiday, but still handy to the many attractions in the Tasman area. 

Stunning Panoramic Views and a Swimming Pool!

 Fantastic stay, wished it was for longer. Will definitely recommend to our friends. Great location with outstanding views and panorama. A well appointed cottage with nice outside areas to sit, including a swimming pool. Well provisioned which we thought was excellent. 

Golden Bay Seaside Paradise

 This is a very peaceful and beautiful place - ideal if you want to get away from the stresses of city life but also place where you can do a lot of things such as walking,swimming, listening to the tuis or just drinking in the wonderful view.

Rotoiti Cottage - St Arnaud

 Our hosts provided great info about local things to do. Loved our week-long stay at Rotoiti Cottage. The cottage had all the facilities we needed and a fantastic location close to the lake. Recommend kayaking & fishing on the lake, gold panning at Louis Creek and Lyell Creek, plus water taxi to the lake head and walk back (3 hours or so). Hamish is your man at the lake front by the campsite for water activities on the lake.
