Nunnbetter - Modern, Family & Pet Friendly home wi

 Fantastic property for our two families with two bedrooms upstairs and two down. Had absolutely everything we needed including toys and puzzles for kids and a greatly appreciated air conditioner (heat pump in winter) for some very hot days! Close to town and short walk to river. Great place. Highly recommend. 

Waikuta Lakeside Lodge - 4 Star Boutique Luxury

 The house itself is very comfortable and spacious, with large living areas, lots of space for everyone to have peace and quiet and large bedrooms. For our family of six it was perfect, with the deck, spa and lawn with the lake right at the edge of the property, but not deep so parents can relax while kids swim and kayak. Well presented and stocked house but not so fancy that you can't relax and enjoy being there. The beds were comfy and I loved the window seat with a book and drink. :-) 

Fantastic beachfront

 Perfect for a family with children (or two families). Would be great summer or winter. Actually, I dont want to say too much, we want it to stay available for us!!! 

Bach and / or cottage - you decide

 Every year we come back and enjoy this bach and love the fact that we are creating special memories for our children of their summer holidays with family.
