Quiet and Secluded in North Eastern Suburbs

 The cottage was right in Hamilton but it felt like it was in the country - very nice. It was spacious, in good repair, well provisioned and the hosts were wonderful. I loved it. 

Beautiful self contained 1 bedroom cottage

 Had a lovely relaxing weekend at this cottage. Close to the beach. Beautiful views of the Miranda coastline. Was comfortable and had everything we needed. Very clean. We were there for a concert in Auckland and it was not a long drive back to the cottage afterwards. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Would definately stay again. 

Mangakino Cosy Kowhai Cottage

 Cute little bach. We loved our stay in Mangokino. The alarm does go off immediately on opening the door and it was difficult trying to concentrate turning it off in the dim light with ringing ears. A delay of a few seconds would have been good. We enjoyed ourselves regardless though.

Whale Bay Escape - Raglan

 It was fantastic! This is our second visit and won't be our last as this bach has everything we could want: a great view, it's well stocked, and is very peaceful. The lovely furniture on the patio is perfect for taking in the view with your morning coffee and the wonderful kitchen means you can prepare some delicious meals. The bed is comfy as is the lounge furnriture. The whole place feels like a home away from home. 

The Birds Nest Cottage

 Lovely little Bach, everything you need and close to town. (I wouldn't put 4 adults in it though like we did.. 2 adults and 2 kids max) Easy to deal with, excellent communication... very accommodating which was really appreciated :-)
