Lakehouse Paradise: We've got it all...

 Lovely spot, quiet, nice views, tranquil and relaxed 

Private, Romantic Log Cabin with Stunning Mt Views

 Lovely cabin, design very well considered and cosy. Owner even returned something we left behind! I'd definitely go back. 

cute cottage, cosy and affordable

 The house is neat and tidy and with modern fittings. The beds are extremely comfortable and the shower powerful. The only letdown was the noise from neighbours but that can't be helped at New Years. Would recommend to others and would consider staying here again if we are to visit Queenstown. 

Lakefront Holiday Home

 thank you we very much enjoyed our stay 

Ruakaka Beach Holiday Retreat
