 Lovely property, extremely clean and well maintained. Our guests from the USA raved about it! Heaps of room and very comfortable. Very well equipped, lots of little touches like fruit in a bowl and cookies in the cookie jar when we arrived.

Wildside Getaway, Adventure and Leisure Retreat

 We literally stumbled across a treasure hidden away in Owhango. Beautiful and clean property. The owners have put a lot of thought into Wildside to maximise comfort. Breathtaking views- so serene and peaceful. We would love to come back and stay for longer. The home is equipped with so much to do that you don't need to go looking for things to do to keep you busy. Perfect getaway for anyone wanting to witness NZ's raw beauty, peace and quiet. Thank you so much! 

Heartland a tranquil eco retreat

 Lovely place to stay. Very peaceful. Short drive to Beach. Sitting in front of fire at end of day was beautiful. 

A 8 bedroom House - (Huge house) Sleeps 18!

 Great set up for larger groups - with bathroom facilities, fridges/freezers, bedrooms with clean comfortable beds and bedding, and dining table sized for the larger group. This all made a comfortable stay for our group.
