Charming Retro Bach minutes from the beach

 This bach was fantastic for our family group of 7 adults and toddlers. It had everything we needed and there was plenty of space for the family to spread out. Was great to have fenced outside space for toddlers. Recommend this bach to others. 

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. 

A beautiful piece of New Zealand history

 Our large family group, including the dogs, spent a great holiday here.How fantastic to take them ( the pooches) with us! . The large lounge and dining areas plus the four bedrooms gave everyone space to relax after spending a morning or afternoon at the blissfully peaceful beach. Though our fishing was an a flop, our holiday certainly wasn't and we would be very keen to see the house again

The Lodge on Waiheke - Stay Waiheke

 The property was very impressive with large open kitchen and lounge area opening onto a large deck as well as another kitchen and lounge just next door. It has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as well as a loft for extra accommodation if needed. BBQ and tables, furniture and great sound system. Everything was catered for including dishes to prepare food right down to coffee & tea. Really fabulous Lodge for a big group for a relaxed and enjoyable weekend away with friends!!!
