Off the Beaten Track offers a selection of gorgeous handpicked rural properties, perfect for a special escape and the best bit is, you won’t find any of them on a main road in New Zealand. Our places are unique, private and secluded and provide unforgettable memories from the moment you leave your house and come to one of ours.
The best holidays and experiences really are Off the Beaten Track!
