 Amazing place. Quiet, private location with incredible views. Really well appointed and comfortable Hills is ideal for a quiet relaxing escape. Looking forward to staying again. 


 Absolutely perfect cottage - quaint, romantic, secluded all the recipes for a great stay. We will definately be back. Hannes you have an amazing place and we cant thank you enough for being able to stay there. Cheers Lloyd and Meg. 

Comfortable flat with private courtyard

 Close to the beach, fully furnished with everything we needed and totally loved the small courtyard out the front. 


 Palm Beach Delight is a beautifully presented cottage, well appointed with all that we needed. There was a welcoming bottle of local Rose wine and chocolates. It has a very comfortable bed with nice linen. The garden setting is lovely and private with native trees and birds, also lime tree, fig tree and herbs. We had a lovely relaxing three days staying here, thank you so much. I can recommend the local fish and chips in Palm Beach and the pizza from the bus in Little Oneroa.
