Nature lovers' slice of paradise

 Beautiful gardens, clean, bright and comfortable house - and close enough to the shops. We stayed in summer but the house looks well equipped for winter as well. Highly recommended.

Ruakaka Beach Holiday Retreat

 Wonderful stay. Fantastic property with everything you need provided for your use. Extremely high standard accommodation. Enjoyed every minute whether lounging at "home" or enjoying the surf at the beach. We had children with us and they loved the space and comfort provided. They loved the outdoor shower (as did the adults)! All facilities were spotlessly clean and beds were clean and comfortable. Would recommend this property to anyone. 

Poripori Homestead rural and close to the city

 A beautiful property in a perfect location. Great to have the pool for the kids as well as a couple of popular watering holes literally across the road. McLaren Falls also nearby which is worth a visit. A very enjoyable stay - would definitely recommend this property and stay again. Thanks Julian & Frances.
