  • The bach is really nice and has everything you need and more...

    The bach is really nice and has everything you need and more (including a hairdryer, beach towels, etc.) There is a pool which is a plus. It is a short drive to Russel. The 2nd unit next door is a bit bigger and a bit more private. We stayed in the studio, which also has a little terrace where you can breakfast in the sunshine overlooking the hills. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely come again. Owners are lovely and everything is very well maintained and managed.

  • The apartment was really nice

    The apartment was really nice. we really liked the area. close to Russell but outside in a quiet residential area surrounded by bush an with an amazing view of the bay and mountains. The studio was a very high standard of fittings and had some board games, a tv, dvd player etc. the kitchenette was fine for making breakfast and small items with a little hob, fridge, kettle etc. There was a welcome package which was really nice.

  • The property is great! Tranquil and peaceful

    The property is great! Tranquil and peaceful. Great facilities and it was a joy to just walk around the property and go for a dip in the pool. The room itself was clean, accomodating and modern. It has got everything you would ever need and the hospitality of the hosts is an extra added bonus to this great place.

  • Never seen a more beautiful bach

    Never seen a more beautiful bach. The views were absolutely stunning, you're in bed and can watch the sunrise right infront of you. Words cannot describe the feeling. Dealing with Lew was a treat, they were so kind and caring, clarified any questions we had and made us feel at home. Definitely coming back here again to soak in the sun and the landscape

  • Beautifully appointed, modern and clean

    Beautifully appointed, modern and clean. Located in a superb position with views over Orongo bay in extensive grounds and with use of pool and barbeque. Less than a ten minute drive to the car ferry and to Russell. A scenic walk to Russel taking in the bay boardwalk is possible and takes around 1hr 45m.
