Barnstyle eco lodge - stunning ocean and mt views.

 We spent six days in the Blodge and had a lovely time in a comfortable,spacious, very complete house with a stunning view. If we didn't live 20000 km away I could easily rent this house every year.

Lake Maraetai Lodge

 The place was very clean and tidy. We enjoyed our stay there. Very peaceful and would recommend it to our friends and family. 

 A modern home with great harbour views & gr8 vibe

 What was there not to like is the question. The layout of Dougs seaside house was excellent from an open-planned kitchen and dining area with a view to enjoy through large windows or enjoy relaxing on the 2nd floor deck. A huge lounge to layback in with access to technology and big screen for the kids. The bedrooms were a good size and suited our needs. And lost for words on the million dollar view from the rooftop deck. Thanks alot Doug thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend all 

Karamu Trail Track Farm Stay and Horse Trekking

 This property is great for a group of families wanting to get away from the hustle bustle. You have the place to yourself, no one to disturb and disturb you. Very easy to book and is not close to town but not too far. Clean and great lay out. 

 A modern home with great harbour views & gr8 vibe

 We booked this property for a large family gathering involving 17 people ranging in age from 7 to 80. It actually exceeded expectations. The kitchen was spacious & contained everything needed to prepare a gourmet feast All the rooms including bathrooms were a good size & the second TV downstairs was a bonus for the younger people. There was ample off street parking for our five cars. We really couldn't think of anything we would do to improve It.
