    Unique environment, very special, completely enclosed by Bush, Nikau Palms Puriri filling the window space. dining and kitchen area exposed to the elements to some degree also with outside accessed shower and long drop, not necessarily everyones' enjoyment but very certainly ours, We absolutely loved our holiday.

    This place is magical, and a fun experience with the outdoor kitchen, shower, toilet. Lynne was really welcoming of our 2 year old, and we loved exploring the gardens, fruit trees and visiting the chickens. It's brilliant how embedded in the bush the house is, and yet only 5 minute walk to cafes etc. The house was a little damp and musty but that comes with living the in the bush I suppose!

  • It was a lovely property, immaculately presented with everything we needed

    It was a lovely property, immaculately presented with everything we needed. So tranquil set in the bush, listening to the stream in the evening and the birds in the morning. Beds were comfortable and the outside shower was a blissful novelty. Great location walking distance to beach, store and the waterfall.
