High above the Ida valley. Views to the Mountains

 The view is incredible; beyond description! The house was one of the best I have ever stayed in; it had everything you needed and was exceptionally clean and well presented. I look forward to returning one day. Many thanks Grant. 

Rangiputa-Absolute Beachfront !!!!

 Wonderful paradise found setting. Beautifully maintained and equipped Bach - just like home. And a privilege to be able to use. Owners a delight to deal with. 

Spacious Holiday House

 Great stay wonderful bach 

Stunning views across the country and out to Ocean

 We stayed at this house with family friends for 8 days. The view is amazing, the pictures just don't do it justice. The place isn't perfect but close to it. Just a few things not finished like painting. Nothing that impacted on the use of the house. Amazing kitchen, 2fridges and plenty of room for a few people to cook at once. No tv which we loved...the kids used the hill with the supplied boogies board as a slide. Loved the Adhoc things that we left in the home for us to enjoy, eg binoculars
