Princes Wharf Luxury Apartment

 We stayed for two nights at this spacious modern apartment. The location is excellent and there was plenty of room and all the amenities that we could have needed, plus some nice personal touches. Definitely would recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a place that is handy to CBD and waterfront and suitable for a short or longer stay. The only thing that could have made it better would have been a seaview - but you don't have to walk far to get one! Thanks! 

Private Headland, Waterfront, Sandy Beach, Kaipara

 Value for money we found it to be great. Just what we wanted. Nothing flash but everything we needed. We only have a 2 wheel car but found the trip out to the private beach was awsome. Our 3 and 5 year olds found the walk to the beach easy... Lots for them to investigate on the beach. Brilliant for our dogs... Relaxing and quite. Thanks.

Whangamata -Beachfront

 The bach had everything anyone could need, and the location was to die for! I am really keen to go again! 

Raglan Farmstay !!!!

 Location was fantastic - close to Raglan. Views from the deck were amazing and sitting on the deck watching the sunset was a highlight for us all. Spa pool was enjoyed by all - especially the younger ones. Only comment would be, though it is up to quests to clean up after themselves, maybe the team could do a quick once over if it isn't up to standard.
