Well located and very comfortable

 It was clean, warm and comfortable with excellent kitchen and a good roomy lounge. The double beds were very comfortable. It was too far from town to walk but five minutes away by car. 

Classic kiwi experience

 Nice place to stay. Would happily book again. 

Classic kiwi experience

 The location is perfect for us, we have stayed here before and the property is always perfect for our arrival. Loved having the firewood ready to go when we arrived late on Saturday. Highly recommend this property. 

Quiet, relaxing, modern home away from home

 This was a beautiful home that we loved staying in and easily accommodated our family of 7. Clean, well cared for and very relaxing. Quiet and private. Central location. It provided everything for a stay away from home. I would highly recommend staying at "Secret on Sullivan". Thank you so much Julie.
