Waterfront Holiday Accommodation

Choose a holiday home with a difference located either right on the water at Plimmerton or Makara - both just a short drive from Wellington city. Or escape from it all to Bellbird Cottage located just 150 steps from the beautiful Lake Taupo. Each of these hand selected properties is furnished to provide you with a home away from home.  With every conceivable extra to ensure that you'll be ringing to book extra nights on the day you are supposed to leave.

Each property is unique and each is very special. We look forward to you becoming another regular guest that treats these special properties as your own holiday home on the water.

Makara Beach at night

Makara Beachfront Retreat
A beach house for all seasons
 this modern (2005) intepretation of the simple kiwi bach is 'shore' to delight. A picturesque 17 km drive from the hustle bustle of Lambton Quay 'Makara Retreat' has all the elements to ensure you unwind, relax & rejuvenate.

Plimmerton Spa

Boathouse on the Beach
As romantic and unique as you will possibly find, with high tide less than 3 metres to your front door in this 1895 beachfront cottage! You'll love waking up in the ships 'mezzanine loft master suite' with the sound of lapping water practically beneath your feet.

Lake Taupo

Bellbird Bach
Hatepe, Lake Taupo

Nestled amongst the surroundings of native bush sits this gorgeously unimposing... but oh so cute cottage.
Just a short 150 steps from the lake front you'll be baked by sun in summer and toasty by the jetmaster fire in winter.
