Large Beachfront Home - Beach Break Rototai

 This property is very private and has expansive living areas However one bedroom in an open area would have been better if the single beds were in this area affording a couple more privacy in the left had room where the single beds were. One couple had to walk through the sleeping space of another couple. Not desirable. 

sunny warm stunning views just all round good


Inhouse unit overlooking Tasman Bay

 The location of the unit was lovely and we enjoyed the view out over the sea. It was perfect for a low budget and comfortable stay with all the necessary amenities. We were grateful for the lovely hospitality. 

Tata Heights Holiday Home

 A great kiwi batch with a great welcome surprise of chocolates, wine & card - what an awesome start to a holiday. 

Thelmas Cottage - Golden Bay Bach (Pakawau Beach)

 All OK 

Beachfront Ligar Bay

 We enjoyed another relaxing holiday in this lovely holiday home at Ligar Bay. The modern well equipped property is easy for holiday makers to keep clean and tidy. The outdoor shower is a Godsend after being at the beach. The weather was fantastic the whole time which meant we swam many times each day. We were too tired and did not need to use the TV or any of the number of DVDs or games. We are gutted to miss out on rebooking a third holiday there next summer. A great place Carolyn and Gary.
