Relaxing, tidy & peaceful 'Whare Hauora '

 Tidy Flat and Sleepout. Great atmosphere and garden. The Sleepout was a big plus! Nice to have a seperate sleeping place for me and my 10 mo old baby. I didn't worry that she would wake the rest of the house if she woke up in the middle of the night. I appreciated no extra fee for cleaning if we left place as we found it. I would stay there again! 

Kiwi Bach with location

 Perfect location & great facilities :-) 

Orani - perfect for a budget conscious family!

 We loved our 12 night stay at Orani. The house was clean and comfortable, the insect screens a definite bonus, and the large deck the perfect place to spend time reading our books and watching life go by, or if you're up early enough to see the sunrise! Muri was just a short 20 minute walk away, and Charlie's (fantastic fish Panini and fruit smoothies together with the friendliest service) just 10 minutes walk in the other direction. A lovely place to unwind - private but with lots of space. 

Mt Hiwi Lodge-A true slice of New Zealand paradise

 It is scenic, quite and relaxing. The kids loved running around on the grass. Had a fantastic rest away from the rat race. 

Farview Bach - Rural, beach, river and fishing!

 Great weekend. Boys enjoyed the spot immensely, fishing down on the beach, BBQ with those views. Plenty of room for 6 guys.
