“Rowena's place is what Air BnB is all about. Of all of the locations we stayed in on our 3 week vacation through North and South Island, Rowena's cottage was hands down our favourite. The view from the outdoor shower is amazing and the breakfast was one of the best we had. The cottage is spotless and cozy and the bed was one of the most comfortable we slept in. Rowena is a warm and welcoming host with a spectacular property. If you are ever in her neck of the woods and have a chance to stay, just do it! Our only regret is that we only stayed 1 night.”
With a botanical theme, a green exterior and solar water heating we are truly a "green" house. Our farm house is set up in the hills overlooking the Waitomo Valley Rd. and tucked amongst old fruit trees, ponds and sculptural limestone outcroppings. This house is 8km's from the Waitomo Caves and 6km's to Otorohanga. Parents will find peace while the kids play in our fully fenced yard and play room. A farm track leading to the scenic top of the farm is accessible most of the year.
“Extraordinary house and extraordinary hosts. Without doubt the best Airbnb we have ever stayed at in terms of the amenities offered - it has everything you can imagine, comfort (the bed is to die for) and the style and decor is lovely - and the generosity of Sarah, one of the nicest people around! We can not recommend this place highly enough. It gets six stars (out of five). BTW: the fly fishing in the nearby Waipa River is fabulous too!”

“Our stay at Ann’s place was wonderful. Ann is such a lovely host, really knowledgeable, easy to talk to and so friendly. Our room was very nice, with a comfortable queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. Ann also allowed us to use her kitchen including her cooking utensils to prepare dinner which we thought was super nice of her. The next morning, Ann served us a delicious breakfast with cereal, toast, homemade marmelade and honey from her bees. Ann’s puupy dog Phoebe was around as well, making our stay even more enjoyable since we are both dog lovers. We are hoping to come back one day!”
