  • Great, quiet property for 2-3 people

    Great, quiet property for 2-3 people. Well equipped, outdoor shower under a covered porch with a composting toilet (also outside). Limited parking and intermittent cell coverage. Lovely hosts!

  • Location is awesome

    Location is awesome .Very private and peaceful . I would suggest taking CD"s .Even though they are supplied .Were not to our liking. The radio did not work . Our phones were not working either . Not that it was a problem .Enjoyed the sounds of silence. Easy to drive to beaches and into Takaka . Everything supplied in the kitchen , we took tupperware bowls to mix up salads and a microwave bowl . Mainly used the barbeque for cooking. Would be nice if there was a cover for the Barbeque .
