New Perspective on Thornton - Beachfront

 Great location and views from deck. heaps of room for a large family or group. 

Big Family Home in quiet area of Blenheim

 Nice quiet location, and the property was extremely well set up for large groups like ours! 

Mountain Biking Retreat   * WiFi Free *

 Great proximity to the redwoods. Well appointed bach with everything we needed. Only slightly negative point would be the shower head in the upstairs shower needing a bit of work 

New Perspective on Thornton - Beachfront

 New Perspective on Thornton was everything we hoped it would be. Fantastic location matched by a fantastic modern fitted out home. Plenty of space for us all and quality fittings throughout. Have noticed with amusement the odd negative comment regarding water pressure....it was the best we have come across along the coast and another regarding mozzies....buy a citronella candle people and you won't have a problem. We will most definitely be rebooking!! 

Large two level,  five bedroom County Villa

 Pictures do not do it justice, beautiful house, and exceptionally private. We will be back again 

Tui's Rest - Home away from home

 Big gorgeous home, receives all day sun, local to all shops and the great lake Taupo. Will no doubt stay again!
