extraordinary river, valley and rural views

 A great location with a beautiful view 

Comfortable, architecturally designed home..

 Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful and serene. Well equipped and comfortable house. 

Stunning accommodation in a wild-life sanctuary

 Close to town but far enough away to be in the bush. Lots of things to do on The 309 Road. The waterfall on the property was a great attraction but must say the walk was a little hairy at times with it being a bit slippery and narrow but once we were down at the creek it was well worth it. Everything was onsite and easily accessible. 

New 5 bed Penthouse including secure parking+Wifi

 Thank you for the opportunity to stay at St. Andrews. A fantastic apartment with excellent facilities, lovely sea views and the best location, so central to the Art Deco Weekend activities. We had a wonderful weekend and look forward to staying here again in the future.. 

Big Family Home in quiet area of Blenheim
