Herb's Place, St Arnaud

 Close to the lake, feeling of living right in the beach forest. 

Quiet, relaxing, modern home away from home

 Nice house with all the creature comforts you could need for a relaxing stay. We were unlucky as the whole stay there seemed to be an issue with the modem and as such there was no internet for us. But apart from that a great time in a comfortable house. 

Kereru House - Stewart Island

 Location was great, 2 minutes above township. Good amenities and had thought of providing everything. 

Moore Fishinn is centrally   located

 A lovely home in a beautiful part of the country! The house had everything we needed, extremely well equipped to make for a very comfortable stay. Highly recommend!! We look forward to staying again next time! 

Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 It is a very comfortable property, with nice and sounded architectural interior and exterior design which suits our taste. It is not too close to the township but is not far away. 

Little Akaloa - Family Holiday Home

 Really enjoyed our stay here. Well kept house and garden with a good sized lawn area in front. Peaceful spot with lots of bird song and a lovely view of the hills. A nice quick walk down to the beach. Fantastic old church nearby.
