  • Exceedingly well designed, setup and comfortable house

    Exceedingly well designed, setup and comfortable house. Loved the rural location, alpacas as foreground and coast as background. Would have liked to explore the locality more had we not had such an active time hiking Mt Teranaki, cycling around the area and enjoying WOMAD festival.

  • Excellent property - we had a lovely stay here

    Excellent property - we had a lovely stay here. The property was modern, clean and had a well equipped kitchen and watching the Alpacas playing in the fields was an added bonus. We were lucky enough to have some warm weather which made sleeping rather unpleasant however unless there were fans or air con provided this would have occurred in any property. I certainly would recommend this property.
