Kereru Cottage is in a great location, convenient for the Tongariro NP and Whangarei River activities and yet a world away from them! The situation is very peaceful. The cottage is modern, well equipped and is spotlessly clean. We loved the walks on the farm, especially the walk to the highest point where the views were fantastic. We’d love to go back one day if we visit NZ again. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Donna and John who made us feel most welcome.
This property is in an isolated location - really peaceful, beautiful farmland. It is quiet, comfortable and well equipped. There is no phone coverage - quite a bonus! (it does have wifi if you are desperate to contact anyone). John was wonderful, taking our 14 year old grandson for two days work on the farm which he thoroughly enjoyed. Hope we can come again someday.
