Mt Hiwi Lodge-A true slice of New Zealand paradise

 It is scenic, quite and relaxing. The kids loved running around on the grass. Had a fantastic rest away from the rat race.

 Lovely location, quiet and plenty of outside space. 

180* sea views, superior coastal 3 yr old cottage

 WOW!!! We had a fantastic weekend at the Bach, which had everything we needed for a comfortable stay with so many added extras adding the icing on the cake. The view was outstanding and showcased our beautiful West Coast to perfection. Can not think of a better place to get away, kick back and relax. A big thanks to the owners for the way the property is presented
