We went with Panorama Tours and it was the best 4.5 hours spent. A smaller can picked us up from hotel then took us to the bigger bus. Our guide Walter was so informative and alot of fun. The tour left at 8.45am which was ideal as we were about the first bus up there so no waiting in a... More

If you're in the mood for really good fish, this is the place. Out of the way, so it's fun to venture there. Not much atmosphere but the foods really good and the portions are huge! Also has a nice little salad bar. Cold Beer and Good Fish! Right between Okawville and Nashville.

Incredible place to take family - even in mid winter. Houses are perfectly set up and service is impeccable. Thanks William Hudson for making our stay one we will always remember. Will definitely be going back!

Let's start with the good points: the views from the villas are fabulous. You're not right by the water but the views of the bays and islands are fabulous. The other great point was the 18 metre infinity pool - really gorgeous and still pleasantly warm in mid winter. The outdoor jacuzzi was wonderful too. Landscaping was very well done.... More

We spent 4 nights in First Light Temple and thought it was simply spectacular. Decor is modern but oh-so-comfortable and welcoming...and really quite romantic. Floor plan is open with spectacular views in 3 directions. The villa itself is spacious but its glass walls and folding glass doors that open onto the wrap-around porch make it feel even larger! Despite the... More

Professional and discreet. A sense of space, like we were the only ones there. The chorus of birdsong in the morning was the only sound that countered the peace and quiet. We could hear Kiwis at night. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were not too soft nor too hard. Apart from every comfort & amenity provided, Mother... More

This was one of the best holidays of my life. The location was beautiful. The house and amenities were fantastic. The staff were brilliant. The views were to die for! What more can someone want from a holiday.

The position of course is superb, the grounds outstanding in their concept & maintenance, & the Eagles Flight Villa overall was to a very high standard notwithstanding we felt there were some comparatively minor matters that needed to be addressed. Villa internal Lighting was lacking in imagination, & was quite glary, which with a comparatively minor cost could be made... More
