My partner worked closely with Sharon to create a wonderfully planned out, magical weekend. We were driven from the Novotel in Auckland to Muriwai Beach in the comfort of the Land Cruiser, before being taken off road and over dunes then onto the deserted beach for champagne and a walk along the water's edge. It was a stunning day weather wise and so the 40+km drive along the beach was amazing. We arrived at our hilltop hideaway overlooking the beach to find a table already set and Paul of Anise Catering, our chef of the evening, in the kitchen ready to cook our degustation meal. Such attention to detail. The meal was divine with perfectly matched wines. The following day was ours to explore the area and beaches before travelling to another stunning home to enjoy a 5 course meal prepared by Paul and Sharon.
On Sunday our planned horse riding was cancelled due to a change in weather but that is definitely on the list for a return visit.
I cannot speak highly enough of the attention to detail that went into the planning between Sharon, Paul and my partner. It was a weekend we will always cherish.

Thank Plajun

We are glad that we made this trip to Muriwai Beach. We have experienced one of the best weekend in New Zealand. Sharon (Director of love my newzealand) organised everything . Right from our dates, to the arrangements in the apartment for our 18 months old baby. It was home away from home. Very neat, tidy, organized , accommodating, everything well planned and arranged - overall an awesome trip. Wish we could extend our stay - never mind, now we know where and who to reach out for our next vacation :). We sincerely "thank" Sharon and her team for giving us this unforgettable time. sharon and team are doing and amazing job by knowing what their client needs and exactly presenting it. a big "Thank you" once again and best wishes to the team of - Love My New Zealand.

I wanted to surprise my husband for his birthday with an amazing experience but also involve our two young children (aged 5 and 3). Sharon made some suggestions and in the end I decided to book the kayaking with the glow worms followed by a weekend at Miranda. The kayaking and glow worms were truly magical. Beautiful glow worms, wine, cheese and hot chocolates by the river at dusk. Something out of a fairytale that we will remember forever. Then, back to Miranda to relax for two lovely nights with everything thought of. Sharon left us with divine chef prepared meals and enough food and drink for an army. Children and adults were very well catered for and it was the perfect way to end a perfect experience. Thank you so much Sharon for a wonderful weekend. We will definitely be back for more!

Your lovely children helped me to see our stunning glow worms from a child's perspective once again - a magical view point! It was a pleasure to host such nice people and to see how much enjoyment you got together as a family.

I chose to use love my New Zealand for an anniversary gift to my partner. We were whisked away in a luxury discovery landcover for a road trip to one of New Zealands hidden gems where we relaxed in hot pools and were served beautiful food. Best experience we've had together in a long time. A big thanks to Sharon for putting the evening together. Safe to say, I can cash in on these brownie points for a while!

We have used love my New Zealand on numerous occasions to take our top clients and business partners out for a memorable VIP experience. Sharon has delivered over and above expectations every time - from degustation fine dining on Piha beach, being hosted by an artist in their studio, formula-e racing and relaxing in the hot pools. Cant recommend highly enough!
