 Stunning outlook, close to local shop, marae, church, beach and estuary. Good parking, easy access, comfortable and welcoming. Wonderful - we will book again. 

 Tirimoana is the perfect spot for a group get together and our group of 11 were really impressed with the house and it's history. The location is great for exploring this area of New Zealand and has the bonus of being only 20 miin or so from Dunedin. The house is particularly well set up for groups. Lovely big well catered for kitchen, BBQ, loads of space to spread out and amazing views down to the sea. The beds and bedding ,too, we're very comfy and clean and we all slept like logs. Faultless! 

 Awesome whare for large groups, spacious, comfortable and amazing views! 

 What a wonderful place to stay. A really great house with lots of history and pleaty of room for everyone. The many heaters in the house made the house warm and comfortable. The views are terrific. We had a wonderful stay. 

 Beautiful place. Very large and accommodating. The kids had a great time playing hide and seek up and down the verandah and walks down to the beach exploring the rocks.
