What a lovely little retreat! We had two nights, sat outside and enjoyed chatting to the family who made us feel so welcome. We loved wandering around, scratching the piggies, stroking the cats and enjoyed a visit from bluey the lovely old family dog. We were sad to leave, such lovely setting!

Rachelle made us feel very welcome at Tui's Rest. She put fresh flowers in the bedroom and lounge which was a lovely touch. It is a compact apartment with a nice outside area for sitting. We only spent one night there so I don't really have more comments to make. Overall a good experience.

A wonderful place to stay in a lovely secluded part of Accacia Bay. The unit was very clean and tidy and Rachelle was an excellent host and a very good communicator. I particularly liked being able to sit outside at the small table having breakfast and enjoying the sounds of the countryside. Rachelle's dogs and cats and dogs are very friendly and great companions.

Thanks Rachelle! Super quiet spot. Shame it was a splash and dash - will have to check out the animals next time! Great setup.

Our stay at Tui's Rest was perfect. The apartment was immaculately clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for our stay. Apartment is secluded and private and was ready for us when we arrived. Acacia Bay is a great location - close enough to town and all the amenities, but far enough away to feel like a peaceful break. And the one thing we have to mention is the bed!! One of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in - wish we could have stayed more than one night..! Thanks for a great stay Rachelle - would highly recommend :)!
