The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 house located in a quiet area. Neat and tidy with plenty of activities provided,dvds,reading material etc. Very warm which would be welcome on those cold nights. 

Big Family Home in quiet area of Blenheim

 We arrived just before the couple left so we met, they were very friendly and welcoming The house was really clean and spacious so we could spread out with both families The boys really enjoyed using the garden, they had bikes we could use. It was in a nice cul de sac, probably only negatives were it was a little noisy Friday night with a party next door but we had to leave windows open as it was super hot this weekend. 

'Love' Hanmer Couples Retreat

 Clean tidy private unbelievably well equipt. Location was out far enough to feel you were in the forest but close enough to walk to town. We loved it & will be back.

 We had a fantastic time , beautiful place with stunning views And a great guy to deal with .
