Mt Hiwi Lodge-A true slice of New Zealand paradise

 Really lovely log cabin. Absolutely perfect! 

Little cottage at Palliser Bay

 The cottage was terrific, we could cook our own breakfast there from ingredients provided by Jacqui, and we had a fireplace to keep us warm at night whilst drinking wine from the local area. So glad to have found this place. 

Rosebud Cottage -  STAY 2 - PAY 1 - 3 - 6 FEB!

 Gorgeous setting, perfect for a romantic occasion. Everything was perfect. 

Karangahake Cottage B&B

 Comfortable, private and very clean. 

Coromandel Orchard Cottage

 The property was clean, tidy, and very well equipped. It is in a delightful garden, and a superb location. Scenic drives, beautiful beaches, and Coramandel town are all within easy reach. 

Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Very peaceful and pleasant. Fab design and decor of chalet. Not on waters edge as I would like for perfection but short walk to excellent beach. I definitely recommend it.
