  •  The cottage was lovely.It was nice to sit on the deck with a glass of wine looking out over the olive trees. It is conveniently situated for a trip to Ninety Mile beach and further on up. We had hoped we would be on the coast itself but the beach is a 7 min walk away and can't be seen from the cottage. However, that was our mistake and not at all a misrepresentation from the owners - we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay again. If you go make, sure you buy some olives - really good. 

  •  Perfect! After a long drive we arrived to find a cute little cottage spotlessly clean awaiting us. It has all the necessities for a comfy stay and there was even a toy box for our son. We had an amazing week and found this the perfect base for exploring the far North, it felt like coming home each night. Vivienne is a fantastic hostess and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. Recommend the cheese and olive platter, yum! Tokerau beach is an easy walk and Matai beach an easy drive 

  •  The location was good and the cottage was very good and well equipped. We'd definitely go back to stay.
