Bush bach nestled in reserve, great sea views

 My mom and aunt Cindy described this as a beautiful location atop a gorgeous hill with a gracious host. I wish I had been able to be with them on this part of the trip! 

5 mins from Heaphy Track/ Kahurangi National Park

 Nice and quiet 

Clean & tidy unit at base of scenic Denniston

 Comfortable grannyflat type apartment with everything you need in a full kitchen, two TVs, comfortable bed with good linen, and lots of hot water in shower. Quiet, comfortable, spotlessly clean. Easy parking next to home. Lovely open garden and covered porch and deck for sitting, even if it rains. I would stay again and recommend it to friends. Hard to think of negatives: about 20min drive from Westport and no mosquito screens in bedroom for a hot night. 

Ann's Cottage - By the Sea

 This sweet little cottage served our needs quite well. It was an easy walk to the beach, and a short drive or longer walk into town. The beds were very comfortable, It was lovely to have use of a clothes washer and dryer, although we used the clothesline in the back yard. Finally, it was a good price for a two bedroom place in such a desirable town. 

Modern beach bach with stunning ocean views

 Neat Bach- great to get away from the hustle of the modern world. 

5 mins from Heaphy Track/ Kahurangi National Park

 Very clean and tidy, what was provided exceeded my expectations. Great fenced garden for little kids.
