Vacationers have plenty of options when it comes to holidays. There are people who go for P&O cruises to enjoy a relaxing cruise in the Indian and Pacific Ocean, while others prefer a getaway under the sun in the beautiful Aotea island. Families and couples who want to have a peaceful vacation that can relieve them of the stress brought by the busy streets of the city will surely find this place very ideal. Make sure though to find an excellent accommodation when you visit here.

Come and stay in The Crossroads Lodge at the centre of the island, Aotea (Great Barrier Island).  It is at an ideal location for your holiday, a few minutes walk from the Claris Club and a little further to the Golf Club. For hikers and backpackers, for fishing and scuba diving, swimming, golf or just lying on the beach enjoying the clean air and sunshine. Explore the untouched tracts of Kauri forest, or just enjoy a clean, quiet haven away from the crowds.
