Lakeview Holiday House Lake Hawea, Wanaka

 the location of the property is stunning and very convenient to the local shops and hotel. the house was very clean and comfortable with plenty of games and activities. the bikes and kayaks were great - couple of small issues i'll email the owners about directly. Would definitely stay again. 

Lakeside Magic, Lake Ellesmere

 What a wonderful house with everything we needed. We even managed to watch the Aussies beaten by the Black Caps on the huge TV! Lots of walks, kayaking, photographing and space to enjoy our friends. Lovely clean home with all the facilities we needed and the owners are fantastic. Highly recommended for a stress free getaway. 

Great Value in Queenstown Town Sleeps 10

 Very central and an easy walk down the hill to town. You wont get a better location than Queenstown, there is so much to do and its so beautiful. 

Big Family Home in quiet area of Blenheim

 We arrived just before the couple left so we met, they were very friendly and welcoming The house was really clean and spacious so we could spread out with both families The boys really enjoyed using the garden, they had bikes we could use. It was in a nice cul de sac, probably only negatives were it was a little noisy Friday night with a party next door but we had to leave windows open as it was super hot this weekend. 

GLENORCHY HOUSE.  360° Mountains, by Lake & River.

 A lovely, relaxing, well equipped house with character. It must be fantastic in winter with the fire going. Only an easy 5 minute walk to the village, lake or lagoon walkway it's so convenient. Glenorchy is a wonderful destination with it's beautiful lake and mountain views and easy access to some of New Zealand's great walking tracks - perfect for those who enjoy the quiet outdoor life away from busy tourist traps. We loved it - thanks Iain for sharing your little slice of paradise.
