Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Tender or auction, what do you prefer?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Selling a house is always stressful and in Wellington the preferred option is tender.
Just 7.9 per cent of sales went under the auctioneer’s hammer in Wellington last month, compared with 40.6 per cent in Auckland. Meanwhile, tenders made up only one per cent of sales in the City of Sails, and two-thirds in the capital.
