  • Beautiful location and property

    Beautiful location and property. Very clean and well maintained. Spacious house with a great layout & fantastic views. Everything was so easy during our stay and we will definitely be back again! Just the perfect place for a daily amble around the lakes with the dogs and to really relax and take stock surrounded by so much wildlife!

  • The property is in the country with lovely rural views

    The property is in the country with lovely rural views. Many of the trees are young but it will be a truly beautiful property in the future. The birdlife is fantastic with tuis, herons, swans, ducks,kingfishers and more. It was a very pleasant experience soaking in the spa or even just sitting on the deck with a glass of wine. We really appreciated that the accommodation was dog-friendly. Ralph had a great time!

  • Everything supplied including a lovely bottle of Mission estate bubbles

    Everything supplied including a lovely bottle of Mission estate bubbles. Location close to town but far enough away to provide peace & quiet & respite from our normal busy lives. Units very well presented with all the amenities needed ie Sky sport, well equipped kitchen & spa pool.
