extraordinary river, valley and rural views

 Loved our stay and will definitely be back in the future. Guests are even left bacon, eggs and homemade jam in the fridge. 

New 5 bed Penthouse including secure parking+Wifi

 Very central to all the places we needed to be over the week. Lots of space for the 9 of us that stayed there. 

The Verandah at Gisborne

 Lovely house, well equipped with everything we needed for a holiday with the kids. Thanks also for the bowl of fresh fruit and herbs! 

Villa Rosa - a charming turn of the century villa

 Liked the proximity to the Village 

Amazing golf course views in a quiet cul-de-sac

 A gorgeous property with a beautiful outlook over the golf course. The property looks like it about to have a paint job and a new driveway put it which will add to the beauty. The house is set out with everything we needed and the bedrooms are very spacious and ideal for our extended family of 11. The location is excellent and a 5 minute drive to town or the luge/ Rainbow springs. We had a wonderful weekend here.
