Zodiac Bay Lake Retreat

 Would highly recommend Zodiac Bay. We had a great time at this prime location. Close enough to attractions and still very peaceful. We had our family with 4 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. The owner was easy to communicate with and very helpful. We will defiantly be back!! 

The Verandah at Gisborne

 Loved the space in this home, the big windows, lovely decks each side so we could chase the sun & what it had to offer us as a family group. I would recommend this home to anyone thinking of staying there. We would definaetly rent this house again.
