Sunny Spacious Seaview Stunner

 Absolutely perfect! It had everything we needed and was a very comfortable home with stunning views into the bays. I would definitely book here again. 

Peaceful and Private with Stunning Rural Views

 Kingfisher Cottage is convenient to Tauranga and the nearby beaches, yet tucked away in a quiet setting with gorgeous views of the Wairoa River valley. So peaceful and relaxing; we were completely at ease. Furnishings and finishes were really beautiful, and it felt like we were staying in a much-loved guest cottage rather than a bland, tired rental unit. It had many homey touches (cozy pillows and throws) and a well-equipped kitchen and BBQ grill for cooking. Loved it! 

Patia Point View - Stunning views!

 This property met our expectations, it is a hunble wee place, authentic NZ. 

Private, Romantic Log Cabin with Stunning Mt Views

 Private, very clean! Just gorgeous! 

Valhalla - Stay Waiheke

 Property was perfect for what we wanted. Somewhere close to the beach, but great entertaining space for us to relax and enjoy the views and have dinner. Kitchen was also large enough for 2 or 3 of us to prepare food and chat with those outside enjoying the pool and those inside chilling out, so never feeling left out. Great property, we'll be back!
