@ Anderson / Hallenstein

 Fabulous place to stay with everything we needed. Was really sad to leave, so close to town and the beautiful views from the windows will stay with me forever. Would definitely recommend to a big crowd. Just awesome! 

The Pink Pipi Karitane

 We absolutely loved our stay in your Bach, no one wanted to leave and we are all eager to go back again in the near future! Perfect location and setting for a very relaxing girls weekend, and would be ideal to take our families too! Thanks so much!

Pelorus Sound farmhouse

 Location was great. Great fishing and very safe swimming. Lifejackets supplied. The kids enjoyed the friendly goat, ewe, and her lamb wandering around. The farm is VERY peacefull and very big. There were plants that I have never seen before. This is a marvelous location with mavelous hosts. And I want to recommend Del from - Havelockwatertaxis too.
