Tasman Heights Sea and Lights - Near New Home!

 Fabulous view, lovely modern kitchen & bathrooms, comfortable bed 

Oka Cottage is a modern, self contained country  c

 This is a beautiful cottage, very spacious, in a delightful garden. Being in the country it is extremely quiet but close to nearby towns and shops. The pool is perfect, we couldn't recommend this property more highly. Thankyou. 

Fantastic Holiday House

 This batch has got a lovely homely feel to it - has everything you need - we loved playing badminton on the front lawn and kids enjoyed the tramp. Twilight drinks on the porch looking out to sea are a must! Batch has everything you need - it was quite a plus having bedding and towels etc provided after a week's camping. Thanks again Joss - just the right place to stay to wind down on the way home :) 

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

 We had a great stay at this rental property with my entire family, grandparents, kids etc. Great outdoor space which flows from the living/area kitchen and we dinned outside every evening. Really enjoyed our holiday in Pohara. 

Magic Views Retreat - central, sunny, comfy

 Great location, close to the city, good base for our adventures.
