Quiet Rural Cottage in the Heart of the Waikato

 Lovely country setting up a tree lined driveway. Close enough to town, far enough away. Well appointed property with doves to keep you company 

Quiet Rural Cottage in the Heart of the Waikato

 stayed here as a family. It seems miles away from the rest of the busy and hectic world with its beautiful country setting and allows you time to truly relax and rejuvenate yourself. The property is perfect- we couldn't find a single fault with it! The cosy haven is filled with character, beauty and comfort! If you are looking for a great holiday in a beautiful location and property then this bach is for you! Highly recommended. A cute touch was the cookies in a jar which we really enjoyed :)

 Privacy, cleanliness, Landlords tolerance of our motor bikes and turning their laundry into chaos 

Quiet Rural Cottage in the Heart of the Waikato

 The country location was excellent while visiting a friend at Waikato hospital. It is separate from the main house, has a warm rustic feel while having everything you need. It is on two levels, living downstairs and 2 spacious rooms upstairs overlooking their farm. The deck off the main bedroom was a lovely spot to sit and unwind at beginning and end of long days and I hope to return and enjoy the quiet countryside. My dog and the resident dog got on very well :)
