The Ultimate Beach House in lovely Peka Peka

 An amazing place to stay--has everything and anything you need and more. The property manager Mary-Lou is incredibly warm, friendly, and attentive. Wish we could have stayed longer but we will definitely be back! 

Cedar House, Gisborne – Mansion Accomadation

 The house had huge bedrooms that were beautifully decorated and with lovely linen. There were plenty of bathrooms again nicely finished. The pool was a highlight for the kids. Only downside was the poorly equipped kitchen and the lounge that only had comfie seating for 5 (there were 11 of us). Overall I would recommend (esp if the kitchen got some more saucepans :) ). A 2 minute walk just around the corner is the wonderful farmers market on Saturdays - well worth stocking up there! 

Paradise Valley Lodge - large country cottage

 Excellent place for family gathering. Also, the creek behind the property is such an experience for city kids! 

Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 This is a perfect holiday house. So nice and secluded. We made the most of the different beaches for swimming, fishing and relaxing!! All within short walking distance. Also a great spot for walking. The house itself was amazing! We were 3 families and there was enough room for all of us to be comfortable. Thank you so much for letting us stay in this beautiful house. 

Te Punga Lodge - The Perfect Year-Round Getaway!

 lovely house where we had a great and relaxing stay 

Paradise Valley Lodge - large country cottage

 Beautiful property set within a serene backdrop in the valley. Had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to an open outdoor living area to enjoy the view and the sun. Super spacious, clean & private place for our family to enjoy the country side of Rotorua however only a few minutes drive from the township. Our family absolutely loved the place! Will definately be back!
