What you're saying about Marram

Cheers for the Volunteers from Martine

“I would like to commend the teams that service the holiday homes. They have been impeccably spotless and lovely places to stay in. Thank you for this great service .”

John loved his recent stay at Marram Taupo

“In all my stays over the years at various units across the country, I would say Annie is the best house person we have come across and we have come across some really good people. Our unit was well presented when we arrived but It is also the little thing she does, i.e. the pot plants outside, the cleaning of the steps, putting the outside furniture out on the grassed area out the back. 
Once again a big thank you to Marram for keeping these units going and to people like Annie for helping make the experience that much more enjoyable.”

On the prompt %100 refund and great Support Team service when the country went back into level 4 lockdown:

“Thanks for the prompt refund. Great service.”   Dave

“Thank you. Wasn’t expecting a full refund.Looking forward to booking again in the future.” Lesley

“Wonderful. Thanks Marram.” Sian.


Nga mihi for all the great feedback on the first of our 28 holiday home refurbishments this year.

The Kaiteriteri and Picton homes are now completed and after posting some pictures on Facebook, your response was very positive.

Rosemary “New decor looks amazing.”

Paddy “Love those new colours.”

Zelda “Love it! We really appreciate it.”

Phil couldn’t fault his Kapiti Marram holiday experience


Our week at the Marram was both relaxing and busy as we had a number of places to explore. From the Raumati location the options are endless and include great cafes and shopping in addition to the wildlife of the area.

Evenings were mostly spent exploring the local beach and taking in the breath-taking sunsets looking out towards Kapiti Island to see the stunning colours during the golden hour.

We're so glad we did the day trip to Kapiti Island as you get to see so much Native forest and birdlife while being able to pace yourself, we may even go back to try climbing the peak.

While Kapiti Island was a great experience we also enjoyed day trips and walks including the Waikanae river, treks into the hills and we even took the train into the city.

The beauty of the Marram is that at the end of the day you can decide whether to cook something using the great facilities or to find a bite to eat in the nearby restaurants and bars.
