No.1 Luxury Studio Accommodation

 Great private apartment. Neatly fitted out kitchenette with all the utensils and dinnerware you would need. Had a nice view and was located opposite the bush hear the calls of kiwi birds at night). 2 min drive to town. This place is perfect for a couple (proby not so great if bringing a child, there is a pull out bed if needed) Well appointed, MySky and a MASSIVE collection of DVDs. Great large bathroom. Best of all the apartment and its surrounds where very clean HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 

Bay Retreat - Absolute Beachfront Holiday Home

 Great having a mooring and a boat ramp so close to the house. 

Bay Retreat - Absolute Beachfront Holiday Home

 This was a fantastic family bach, with everything we needed for a great week away. The location was amazing, right on the beach. The views were lovely - especially the sunsets. Handy to Russell but not right in the midst of quite a busy wee town, so we really felt like we had the "holiday vibe" going. The house was nice and clean when we arrived and didn't take too much effort to leave it that way before we left. The owner was great to deal with.
