Enjoy the sound of the birds among the trees

 Ron was very friendly. He was there to meet us on our arrival, gave us a tour of house, left us milk and wine in the fridge. Very welcoming, Thankyou. 

Aotea Harbour bach, stunning views of the harbour

 Aotea harbour is a hidden GEM! The laid back atmosphere, the closeness of the beach and the excellent layout of the Bach make for a fantastic getaway with the kids. Go down the stairs of the sea wall and right 100m then spend a lazy day under the pohutakawas watching the tide. This was heaven! Fab for the whole family. Couldn't recommend more highly. 

The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 Large house, big lounge for socializing, comfortable beds and good showers, good location to ohakune shops and about an hour drive to tongariro crossing. 

Estuary Edge Family Home

 Ella what a great spot for a batch. We felt really blessed to share your the view, enjoy the estury and the wonderful relaxed atmosphere at your batch. Our family thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Spacious living area, and ample deck. Enough room for everyone to sleep very comfortably. The real treat was the warm outdoor shower. Such a great idea, we didn't need to drag the sand and half the beach inside, simply cleaned up outside. There is something nice about showering outside, felt like Fiji. 

Sounds View Bach - Tranquil, Idyllic, Relaxing

 Fantastic views. The bach was very well equipped and tidy, great shower. The kids enjoyed looking for crabs at the beach at low tide, jumping from the jetty by the Queen Charlotte track at high tide and fishing for spotties in the evenings using mussels as bait!. We had amazing weather only wished the water was a bit clearer. Thank you very much, what a lovely part of the world.
