After a few days at Villa On The Bay you will be so relaxed you will have forgotten what day of the week it is.



"We first stayed at the "Villa" holiday home in Golden Bay in Jan 2006, but we were so busy enjoying ourselves we forgot to sign the 'book'. Our second visit has been equally enjoyable, we've been blessed with beautiful weather and enjoyed various beach and bush walks. The Villa, as we knew it would be, has been exceptional, the kitchen is a cook's dream, the four poster's a princesses dream! Other highlights this year were stargazing on a clear night, bird watching in the morning from my four poster - watch out for the tui, sunsets and putting my feet up with a good book. In sum, Villa on the Bay is a slice of paradise!"
