Romantic Farm Cottage. Affordable Luxury.

 A lovely well presented cottage. The location is great for a quiet and relaxing holiday, but still handy to the many attractions in the Tasman area. 

Stunning views across the country and out to Ocean

 Great stay! Highly recommend staying

Classic kiwi experience

 Locality, just the whole set up. We just love the place, especially as we can keep our best mate with us rather than having to put him in a kennel. 

Ruakaka Beach House Retreat

 Thanks for letting us use your Bach. We had a fantastic week at Ruakaka, What a great place. 

Time out in Tapora, ideal for golfing or fishing

 It felt like we were staying in a House & Garden magazine spread! Beds were so comfy. Everything you could want was in the kitchen. Great decor choices! Easy place to relax and entertain. The Stars were amazing at night time, we had fun playing golf up the road, Twilight Golf then Fish & Chips at the Golf club was yum. Loads of Great Horse Trekking possibilities at the Auckland Regional Park, the View from the Pa Site was well worth the walk ( My 7 year old did not agree tho ). Thanks
