Moments in Medicine – Champagne Sweepstakes

Enjoy a one week stay at St. Georges by the Sea

This home away from home is located on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island, in the Taranaki region. 

Nestled between Mt. Taranaki and the Tasman Sea, this 6-bedroom residence is an oasis from the stresses of life. Everything about its construction – using volcanic river stone, glass, copper and granite materials – was designed to create an airy, light-filled atmosphere to complement the home’s gorgeous natural surroundings. The residence has three wings – all of them offer sea views and access onto the inner courtyard and granite pool. Each room at St. Georges has its own unique feel and personality. 

St. Georges is conveniently located within a 20-minute drive of many recreational and cultural attractions. So while you are here, try the championship golf course in New Plymouth; stroll through the region’s award-winning Pukeiti Rhododendron Trust gardens; or, book a thrilling helicopter ride over Mt. Taranaki. You will be delighted by how much there is to experience. 

The prize includes airfare for two (to a maximum of $5,000 – economy Air New Zealand tickets from Toronto to New Plymouth, New Zealand) and accommodation for two at St. Georges.
