Relax Studio Apartment

 Lovely unit perfect location and was surprised with the beautiful view. 

Retreat Studio Apartment

 Everything we needed for a couple of nights away! So close to the vineyards and Oneroa Village. Would stay there again! 

Kereru Hill, an Ideal family getaway.

 Great views, short walk to the beach- about 20 minutes. Good layout but will benefit from bigger size dining table. Very good place to stay. 

Relax Studio Apartment

 Very handy both for Oneroa , cable bay, and mudbrick wineries. 10-15 minute walk to all. 

Treetops Onetangi

 A great place to stay. Perfect, quiet bush setting. 

Kereru Hill, an Ideal family getaway.

 The view was absolutely beautiful. The space inside the bach was perfect and we had a really lovely time. The only thing missing was a dining or outdoor table that we could all sit at together, but we got on perfectly fine anyway.
