Lakeside Maisonette, Queenstown

 A very special bach - spectacular views from every room of a house that is both stylish and comfortable. 

Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Terrific place. Beyond the idyllic location, the accommodation was beautifully kept and adorned with nice "homey" touches like ground coffee, hot chocolate, and dry wood and paper for the wood stove. Irma and Kees are sweet people: there to help but as far from intrusive as one can be. 

Nikau Cottage - Cosy Forest Hideaway

 The place was absolutely gorgeous, lots of privacy, quiet and very close to one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island and wonderful places to dine. The place was very clean, well equipped and had a wonderful selection of books and games for adults and children. The beds were very comfortable with lots of blankets and towels available. I couldn't have been happier! Thank you so much for making my 28th birthday so memorable. I will definitely be back. 

Elegant, secluded Cottage nestled in bush

 This property had everything we needed. Modern & styled while maintaining a homely feel, warmth combined with a easy indoor outdoor flow, all amenities required without being cramped...& special touches in all the right places. Private with access to walkways & coastal access...beautifully set in native bush with view of the water.
