AORANGI COTTAGE - refurbished kiwi villa

 Lovely and quiet. Private section. Nice and close for a walk to town, the bridge or the beach. Comfortable beds. Well stocked kitchen for what we needed. Enjoyed a visit and cuddles from a neighbouring feline (who was well mannered enough to stay outside) :-) 

Holiday by the Sea, absolute waterfront bach

 Easy place to be, exciting to be influenced by the tides with your comings and going. We came last year for a family get together and enjoyed it so much that everyone wanted to go back to the same place. The kayaks were well used and enjoyed. A 2nd bathroom would not go amiss for a big family group, but it all worked well for us. 

Relax in Raglan

 great character house, very comfy ,everything we needed was here.
