Mangapari Shearers Quarters

 Easy to make booking, lovely owners, and simple but clean and comfy accommodation. Thanks for a great weekend! 

Mountain Bikers Retreat, Self Catering, Redwoods

 The location was perfect for what my family and I were there for, for that weekend. I loved that there was a pool and spa and space around the side/ back of the house for the kids to run around and be entertained. Games room in the garage was awesome for the adults for us to just chill and have fun. Beautiful view from up on the hill, I recommend to anyone who is wanting to get away to a nice quiet scenic place, wither with friends and or family, this is the perfect place. 

Rotoiti Lakeside Lodge

Barnstyle eco lodge - stunning ocean and mt views.

 Amazing location and views - you will never want to leave!! Perfect for families. 

5 Bdrm Beachfront Family Escape

 Being from Naki it was a long way to drive but upon settling in it was very much worth it. We took our own kayaks, would probably be good have some on offer at the location. Next morning got a flat tyre and went into Cormandel and found the service and people went out of their way to help us.
