Modern stylish beach apartment

 This place was perfect for our family's needs. It was close to everything so we could walk to different activities and part of a complex so the kids could play tennis and swim in the heated pool. The only thing I would suggest would be WiFi access but other than that everything was great. 

Mereden - Fabulous Central Waterfront Location

 This was a great place to stay. Had everything we needed and in a great location to the beach, mountain and eateries. We would readily stay here again! Thanks for making this holiday very easy and enjoyable

Nikau Apartment Unit 2

 Russel was amazingly beautiful, we had a great time and the weather for the most part played the game. The house exceeded our expectations, it was neat & tidy, well furnished and met our needs.

Apartment 4 on Conical

 I stayed with my 4 children for 4 nights. This apartment is in a great location/walking distance to everything in Hanmer. It would have been nice to have one more chair at the table( only 4 chairs) but I guess its ideally suited to 4( 2 queen beds) but 5 does work. The fold out ottoman I slept on was absolutely fine. We loved our stay here and look forward to staying again. Nice not to worry about linen and cleaning. Great heat pump for the cooler evenings and we did have some snow too.
