Central Oamaru, great views of the town & sea

 The stay, the view, the convenient location, this home is amazing, we had an amazing stay, and the owners were so great! Sleep 8 people just fine, and could have slept more with ease! The view is breathtaking, and had all the necessities to make a family get together feel like home! 

extraordinary river, valley and rural views

 We spent a lovely two nights at Cairmuir Cottage, and wish we could've stayed twice as long. This was a perfect place to stay as a couple though it'd be great for large groups too. A beautiful setting and comfortable home, with everything as we needed it and more. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Stunning Ocean Front Beach house

 Had a lovely time, House perfect for three couples to enjoy each others company yet have own separate rooms and bathrooms. House well equipped with everything we needed 

Amazing golf course views in a quiet cul-de-sac

 The location was lovely - quiet and peaceful with lovely views over the Golf Course. Easy walk to the local shops and Rotorua CBD just a short drive away. An easy cycle to the MTB park, which has a lot to offer for all levels of riders. The property had plenty of room for vehicles to park and plenty of room inside for all of us. The deck is a very pleasant place to sit also.
