Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 House is fantastic, with some great design features. Location is amazing, Surrounded by the mountains and easy to access all areas of interest. We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. 

BLUESKIN BAY HOUSE - beach, space, views and peace

 Quiet and beautiful location and garden. Lovely character house and friendly host. 

Sunny spacious well equipped home in Geraldine

 Lovely home to stay in, especially great for young families as it's all fully fenced and has lots of toys for the children to play with. So close to the swimming pool and playgrounds.Lots of different bedding combinations in the bedrooms. Lots of seating, two dining room tables even. Would suit large groups of family. 

Croisilles Haven - OKIWI BAY- Large and spacious

 LOVED the house - has everything you need (and could possibly want for, I felt!). Spacious and very comfortable. The perfect scene for many happy memories to be made :)

POST RETREAT - Former Post Masters Residence

 Fantastic location and very child friendly. Would definitely recommend it to others. Only little negative was that the mattresses weren't that comfortable but not a huge problem. 

***A Quiet Crowd Pleaser close to the Beach***!

 We had a great stay at this rental property with my entire family, grandparents, kids etc. Great outdoor space which flows from the living/area kitchen and we dinned outside every evening. Really enjoyed our holiday in Pohara.
