Lakeside Maisonette, Queenstown

 We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolute bliss! Private, quiet (except for the native birds), magnificent mountain & lake views and surrounded by native bush! We were so glad that this was a bit out of Q'town and away from the hustle, but still close enough. Plenty of cheap (or free!) car parking in town anyway. Wonderful place & well designed with huge windows for picturesque views. Just marvellous! 

Four Seasons in one Day

 A wonderful quiet location, handy to Oneroa. I loved all the personal touches that the owner has put into the accomadation and the artistic flare is fantastic. Nice tidy place with full kitchen. 

Cosy studio cottage in semi rural setting

 So quiet, yet close to both Hastings and Havelock North. Very convenient location. 

Sunny, peaceful cottage

 Lovely stay at the tidy and cosy house. Friendly and helpful owners made it a very pleasant stay. 

Beautiful Bach for Two, hot tub and little beach

 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cariad bach. The location, the setting, the retro feel....perfect! The bach had everything we needed, and we loved watching the ferries coming and going, the seals feeding in the bay, and the hot tub.
