Modern studio unit on The QUEEN CHARLOTTE DRIVE

 Valerie and Graeme were the perfect hosts providing much local knowledge and they even helped to research some of my family history.Nothing prepared us for the view over the 'Sounds', it was stunning and we spent the first evening with a glass of Pinot savouring all it had to offer. The accommodation was everything we needed. The highlight of our stay was kayaking the 'Sounds' on Valerie's recommendation.

Ngongotaha Cottage, Rotorua

 This was our second stay at the Cottage and always a great experience. The cottage is very well presented and provided everything we needed for a comfortable weekend. Close enough to town and quiet location. Our family lab enjoyed the nearby Elliot Reserve off lead area. Highly recommended. 

Coromandel Orchard Cottage

 Close out off town if you need anything and with a great orchard
