Holiday on Henare, Olde Beach Waikanae.

 Excellent holiday house. Would highly recommend. 

Beach Getaway Kapiti Coast, Paraparaumu Beach

 Fantastic stay. Cottage was clean, comfortable & extremely well equipped. Wonderful location so close to beach & use of pretty garden & deck. Owner was a great host giving good information on where to eat, wish it had been for longer! Thank you. 

Stay, Play, Rest, Relax

 We loved our stay at The Garden Shed! The house was immaculate on our arrival, and Robert and Amanda made sure we had everything we needed, including the lend of a wee bike for the girls to practice on the grass. The girls loved picking the fresh berries from the garden, and the trampoline was a go to each morning! It was a perfect little haven for our summer mini escape from the city and we certainly hope to be back! Thank you:-D 

Homegrown House - a country getaway.

 Even though the house was on the main highway it was private with the bedrooms on the back of the house away from the road noise. It was clean with a large backyard and barbecue area. The decor absolutely intrigued us - totally retro. It was comfortable and relaxing. The only thing that concerned us is that we could not see any smoke alarms!
