Opunake beach side bach

 Thanks for the stay - we had an amazing time with family celebrating a birthday, it is an awesome secluded spot with the most amazing views - sunrise and sunsets are picture postcard and the mountain view is pretty stunning too - so good to be so close to the beach, with great adventures getting there, beanbags on the large deck are a great spot to spend the evenings - we only stayed one night but all wished we could stay longer and definitely plan to hopefully be back sometime. 

Stunning ocean-front beach house

 One of my guests was in a wheelchair which provided a few challenges, otherwise a great place to stay. 

Grantham Drive, Hanmer Springs

 We loved staying in this house, it had everything we needed and it was very comfortable. It was in a great area and it was a nice safe walk to the village and hot pools.
