Oreti Village, where we prefer to stay

This is not the name of a village but of a timeshare resort located new Pukawa Bay, about 12 kms from Taurangi.

We have an original timeshare in Rosebud, Victoria, Australia, and space bank our week so we can go elsewhere in the world, though it seems it is mostly to New Zealand.

Oreti Village is about as remote from a city as you can get, and we love it.  Quiet, picturesque, and very relaxing we come to do what we call veg, just wind down and do nothing.  The place we stay is a self-contained three bedroom unit with full kitchen laundry and ample room for six people not to fall over each other.

It costs us 199 dollars for the week.

An equivalent anywhere else would cost between $1,200 and $2,500.  I know, I've tried.

The best part about this place is the walks, all of which are manageable for people like us, no longer able to run a marathon or hike from dawn to dusk, and along the way at be entertained by ducks geese swans and the off rabbit.  Well, this year there were a lot more rabbits.  Even in the rain, early morning or late afternoon, there's always something different to admire.  We tend to feed the ducks and swans.

I'm sure there is more to the facilities of the village, like a tennis court and a heated pool, and more but we never had the inclination to find out.  Maybe in the future, we might.  There's no doubt we will be going back.  One day.

At the resort there is a 5-star restaurant where over the years we have stayed has provided us with some of the most memorable dinners and an interesting selection of wines, mostly local.

What more could you possibly want?
