Rock 'n Rata Cottage

 Rock n Rata is paradise! Thank you so much for letting us stay at your little house, complete with our teenage children and dogs. We all had a wonderfully restful time and are certainly looking at returning. All the Best until then. 

Beach End Hideaway Cottage

 A delightful ,simple ,private bach with stunning , ever changing sea and tidal flats outlook. A gorgeous area to explore.. Wharariki beach with seals, some great potters, a lovely basket weaver, the Aorere for fishing.... The highlight was the oystercatchers and godwits on the beach in front of the bach. 

Nelson/Monaco Holiday Home

 Thank you 

Nelson/Monaco Holiday Home

 Great location, handy to all amenities, within walking distance to restaurants and local shopping area. Very relaxing location. 

Orchard View Cottage

 Lovely spot. Clean, everything you need, fantastic shower! We enjoyed watching the bird life in the evenings; who needs television with that on the doorstep... 

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.
