Best weekend escape?

If you live in one of NZ's big cities you will have your personal favourite weekend escape. In Auckland it might be Waiheke, in Christchurch perhaps Akaroa. For those of us in Wellington you can't beat the charm, tranquility, ambience and sheer quality of Martinborough. Just an hour and a bit from the heart of the City, Martinborough offers a world as detached from everyday reality as the trip through the wardrobe into Narnia! What's your personal favourite weekend escape?


The bedroom


Mount Maunganui, only an hour for us and we love it, so do the kids!


The Kapiti Coast - not far from Wellington and always a few degrees warmer.


Can't beat Waiheke in summer.


Hanmer Springs is great - awesome walks, great scenery plus hot pools and golf.

Can't beat time out in the Coramandel, it is gorgeous and easy to relax there too.


Rotorua is a great destination -lots to do & some great restaurants


Walk the Tongariro Crosing Its been described one of the finest one day walks in the world and I agree
