    A true Kiwi crib, a little rough around the edges, but in a great location and had everything you could need for your stay.

  • Great wee Bach, reasonably priced and handy to town

    Great wee Bach, reasonably priced and handy to town. The kids loved the wild rabbits on the lawn.

  • Location is good and house not a bad size

    Location is good and house not a bad size. But property is very tired, looks like the owners started to renovate but ran out of steam. They bought great new drapes in living only, new coffee tables and wallpaper. But the settee is completely stuffed, no structure left n when u sit down it feels like you'll go through to the floor! The master bedroom bed is good but the singles are v old and not good. The outdoor dinning seats sparse n some missing backs. Black mild on window frames
