“An absolutely beautiful rural cottage with a wonderful view of the hills especially during sunset. The photos of this 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage don’t do them justice; it’s far more beautiful in person. I stayed 3 nights and was reluctant to leave! The hosts made me feel very welcome and safe. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again if I go to area in the future.”

“Wonderful overnight stay, we were flying back to Brisbane the next day and this was the perfect place to spend our last night. Walking distance to the wharf and town shops and away from the bustling city area of Auckland but only 1 hr drive away. So many homely touches and breakfast included. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend. Thank you Rhiannon”

“If you're looking at a close getaway this is a great place to come out and smell the fresh air, the cottage/cabin is the perfect size, the huge lawn area is great for throwing out a picnic blanket and sitting and enjoying the sun. The location is great with a lot of things to do close by (The hunting lodge is a must). The hospitality was amazing, fresh milk straight from the farm was a nice touch, and just the small added touches to make us feel comfortable, which we did the whole time there! Perfect place for a quick little getaway!”
