When she’s not chatting to exhibitors through Michele’s other business Classic Events, you can find Kylie chasing after her 2 boys, out in the garden, or bingeing her favourite Netflix shows.
Following on with our team’s dream getaways, next up Kylie tells us why she thinks her hometown region the mighty Waikato is the best place to take a holiday.
Picking The Beach House Cottage as her pick of accommodation, Kylie is all about family friendly holidays that create lifetime memories.
The Beach Cottage at Waikorea Beach is located between Raglan and Port Waikato on the West Coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Located on a 1500 acre sheep and cattle farm, the Cottage is the perfect place to get back to nature, with no TV, wifi or cellphones.
- What is your favourite OTBT holiday destination in NZ?
I Love the Waikato! Having lived all around NZ, I think Waikato is the bee’s knees! I’m slowly exploring all the nooks and cranny’s this cool region has to offer!
- What is your ideal accommodation stay?
With a young family, I want to be able to relax too! So having all the amenities handy is key (sorry but 2 toddlers and a long drop would cause all sorts of chaos!). My top ‘must haves’ would be; full kitchen/bathroom, nature and easy access/family-friendly.
- What do you look for when choosing your accommodation?
For me, an ideal OTBT holiday spot is all about getting off the grid and having some quality family time. The Beach Cottage is an ideal little kiwi batch that reminds me of the holidays I had as a kid, getting back to basics and enjoying the outdoors. For me it’s all about the fun we can have.
- What is a local activity you would consider partaking in?
Some good local activities are always a bonus, this spot offers great spots for paddling and for the kids to run amuck along the beach. Sliding down the sand dunes sounds like a laugh, and a quick trip to the nearby Nikau caves would be epic!
- What is your favourite thing about the OTBT location and why you would recommend it to others?
It’s the perfect mix of rustic with everything you need, and only a 1hr drive from Hamilton city.
Kylie’s choice is The Beach Cottage Matira, Waikato
