 The cottage is set amongst lovely trees and has hens and ducks frockling around nearby. Kari Kari Peninsula is my favourite holiday destination as there are so many beaches to choose from, and it's away from the hustle and bustle of city life. 

 The Poppawhiwhi cottage is a true gem in the Karikali peninsula and we recommend anyone venturing that way to stay there. It's close proximity to all the beautiful beaches in doubtless bay and a great base to explore other attractions in the region. We fell in love with this place and will definitely consider staying there again when we are up north in the near future. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need to enjoy a superb holiday. The closest beach is just few minutes away. 

 Loved our stay, lovely outlook and peaceful recommend, thanks to the owners. 

 We had a wonderful time the house was well furnished and clean, the hostess was welcoming and very helpful and the location was excellent for exploring the whole peninsula. We would do it again and we definitely recommend it. Mohamed Kamal - Hamilton NZ
