WAIKAWA BAY, PICTON: I spy, with my little eye... a beautiful view.

A THROWBACK: You'll get that retro feeling in this awesome little coastal bach.

PRICELESS: Breakfast may set you back $20, but there is no price for that view.

RELAX: With a good book, a cuppa, and some binoculars to spot the wildlife.

WAIHEKE ISLAND: It could be a resort on any tropical Island, but it's right here in New Zealand.

LUXURIOUS STYLE: Inside and out, you'll be enjoying extreme comfort here.

STUNNING: Overlooking Oneroa Beach and the bay, the view from here is beautiful.

A WEEKEND AWAY: It may not be long enough, but it will definitely be worth it.
