Paturau Beach paradise

 Paturau is the perfect place for families to unwind,and to enjoy the spectacular west coast. 

Rustic Retreat - Beachfront Paradise

 Love the name - Rustic Retreat is exactly right. 

Sunny spacious well equipped home in Geraldine

 Lovely home to stay in, especially great for young families as it's all fully fenced and has lots of toys for the children to play with. So close to the swimming pool and playgrounds.Lots of different bedding combinations in the bedrooms. Lots of seating, two dining room tables even. Would suit large groups of family. 


 Fantastic location with an incredible view and the bonus of having your own jetty. House was basic but comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. Would be happy to stay again. 

POST RETREAT - Former Post Masters Residence

 Fantastic location and very child friendly. Would definitely recommend it to others. Only little negative was that the mattresses weren't that comfortable but not a huge problem. 

75 The Bach - Lake Taupo

 Great place with everything you could possibly need. Very helpful people.
