Large, modern, family house with great view

 The house is well kept, has amazing views, works well for kids, and is handy to the train station -- for trips into Wellington or up the coast. We used the house for meeting up with old friends. It has a terrific indoor // outdoor kind of flow that just makes entertaining a real treat. 

Beautiful private house

 our family of seven had a fantastic relaxing time. The place so suited the children's ages. We played lots of tennis, swam, played in the school playground next door and walked down to the beach. The train station was very close and it was easy to get into Wellington. Highly recommend this well equipped, comfortable and homely place. would love to return. 

Beautiful private house

 Paradise on Earth!! A great set up for families or groups. The home is very well equiped and is very private, comfortable, clean and tidy. We enjoyed lots of tennis and plenty of swimming also lots of time in the private outdoor ares. The house has a very steep drive however flattens out to good parking space - and well worth it to be nestled the the peaceful bush surroundings
