Whangapoua Beach Cottage

 Whangapoua (New Chums) is a wonderful part of the Coromandle Penninsula. We were fortunate to have fantastic weather for the week. This made maximising the surrounding activities more pleasureable, challenging & intereasting. The accomodation facility indoor/outdoor flow suited our needs. We had an awesome holiday. 

Tutukaka - Church Bay beach front bach

 Perfect location for families at a safe inner harbour beach. Our 5th year staying at Church Bay and we will be back again. Fully catered bach with everything that you will need. Wonderful beach neighbours and the perfect location to enjoy Northland. Fall asleep at night to the sound of the ocean and wake up to the tuis in the pohutukawa tree just outside the bedroom. Perfect. 

Farm Stay on lifestyle block with bush walks

 Pleasant environment, host and facilities. Much appreciated that you and your wahine waited literally all day for us to arrive. From a personal point of view I really enjoyed the quietness and space. 

Eco-friendly Te Aute Ridge Cottage

 Absolutely loved our stay, the outdoor shower was the highlight of our trip and all the little extras Margaret had for us. Will definitely be back to stay again soon! 

Bliss - Taupo Holiday Home

 Beautiful view from the property and we really enjoyed the outdoor decking area - front deck with shade and back deck with sunshine and BBQ space. The location was a bit of a walk from the centre of Taupo, but easy to get to the lakefront.
