Quiet Rural Cottage in the Heart of the Waikato

 The property was very peacefull and lovely surroundings. only downfall would be lack of lighting on the stairway to the bedrooms

 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 :) 

Quiet Rural Cottage in the Heart of the Waikato

 Our family of 4 adults and a toddler stayed here and found it perfect for our needs, with lovely, tranquil farmland surroundings, lots of trees and the rustic cottage being very clean and well equipped. Towels were pristine, white and fluffy and the bed linen was divine to slip into after a long day. Ginnie and her wee dog gave us a very warm welcome. We would happily stay again and recommend this property to anyone. Thank you Ginnie!

 I loved staying at Ginni's bach. It was in the country, had a lovely rustic feel, and was very well provisioned. Ginni and Allen are delightful hosts. I so enjoyed getting to know them a bit over the week.
