Large, modern, family house with great view

 The house is well kept, has amazing views, works well for kids, and is handy to the train station -- for trips into Wellington or up the coast. We used the house for meeting up with old friends. It has a terrific indoor // outdoor kind of flow that just makes entertaining a real treat. 

Aspen Cottage - Stylish Cottage with Sea Views

 Beautiful surroundings. Immaculately presented cottage. Friendly host. A great place for a couples retreat. 

Very handy Plimmerton apartment

 We were very happy with the property which was clean and comfortable and in a great location for visiting our family. Many thanks! 

Cute little farm cottage

 We LOVED Moonshine cottage. It is so peaceful there. In the country yet so close to Wellington. It is so comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely stay again. Donna was great to deal with and she even left fresh milk and eggs in the fridge for us - a lovely touch. 


 beautiful setting and excellent set up for children. 

Beautiful private house

 our family of seven had a fantastic relaxing time. The place so suited the children's ages. We played lots of tennis, swam, played in the school playground next door and walked down to the beach. The train station was very close and it was easy to get into Wellington. Highly recommend this well equipped, comfortable and homely place. would love to return.
