Other Dream places to share with you....

If you enjoyed staying with us, you should consider visiting our Rotoiti Lake Retreat to complete your New Zealand experience or our St Heliers Beachside Apartment on Auckland most sought after beach. For the ones in search of special character holidays, we also offer a small but fabulous medieval apartment in the heart of Provence near (but not too close) the beaches and lakes of the French Riviera. 

Lake Retreat


Complete your New Zealand experience by visiting the region around Lake Rotoiti in the middle of the North Island. This region near Bay of Plenty is one of the most visited places in New Zealand for its native rainforests, sporting experiences, volcanic activities and Maori History.

Lake Rotoiti is at the center of a region of high volcanic activity with the most amazing landscapes.


Our Lake Retreat offers breathtaking views over the surrounding hills and lake Rotoiti and is only minutes away from its shores.  It can accommodate from 2 to 12 guests in total comfort.

The Lake house features a very large lounge and dining room, a pool room, 3 double bedrooms, a large bunk room, 4 bathrooms, all surrounded by extensive decking and tropical gardens. Kayacks and bicycles are available.


The Lake Retreat has its own dedicated lake access minutes away from the main house. This access features a private and secured car and trailer park, a boat ramp as well as a private jetty for embarking passengers and loading your boat. Permanent Jetty docking mayu be available at extra cost.


Experience one of New Zealand most unique lake cruises onboard ESCAPADA, our LUXURY 38" vintage Kauri launch. This 1947 old lady may take up to 12 passengers on lake discovery or romantic tours visiting some pristine lake beaches as well as the Manipirua Hot springs (Only accessible by boat). Prices on application.

Provence Medieval Hideaway


You will truly adore what we can organise for your next trip to France, dipping yourself in ancient history, visiting the Country in a more personalised and friendly way avoiding the usual Tourist "clichés", tasting French home made meals and wines and meeting the locals "frogs".


Your Host is originally from a small medieval Village in Provence called Fayence with history dating back to Roman times.

The Village is 25 minute drive from Cannes and 45 minutes from Nice Intl. Airport. Its location offers easy access to the Gorges du Verdon, the entire French riviera, the Southern Alps as well as several breathtaking lakes.

It is also well known for its wines, food markets, Golf courses and best gliding facilities in Europe.


We can either provide accommodation behind the fortified walls of a 1200 year old building in the center of the village or (for bigger families) in a larger villa with with swimming pool nested amongst the olive trees. .
