Historic Stone Cottage

 Tinker Cottage was a lovely cottage. We were greeted with shortbread, a bowl of fruit jug of milk in the fridge and fresh cut roses out of the lovely garden. Marilyn, Doug and Lizzie made our stay very enjoyable, The bed is really comfy, a great big shower and great water pressure and all lovely and clean. They told us about the surrounding area, which is lovely, we recommend doing the circuit walk to Alexandra, go along the rail trail, stop off at the Courtroom cafe then back along the river 

The Hideaway @ Kakanui

 Well equipped and very child friendly 

Ophir relaxation away from the Hustle & Bustle

 Ryan's Cottage is a quaint little house in Ophir and we would not hesitate to recommend to others or stay there again ourselves. The cottage is superbly presented, very clean and with all the comforts of home. A beautiful example of a 100 year old cottage decorated with all the lovely knick knacks and old china. Ophir is a lovely little town for a peaceful get away and has a great café just 2 minutes along the street. Thanks for a lovely weekend Judy. 

Modern Kakanui Beach House

 Neither the view nor the property disappointed. We had a wonderful time sitting out on the covered deck and were able to enjoy the property regardless of the weather. We would definitely stay again.
