  • An idyllically perfect location at the beginning of the sound

    An idyllically perfect location at the beginning of the sound. Sat on the deck with a glass of wine or on the boardwalk with fish and chips, I don't think there are many places that are like this. The roaring log fire after some time out in the kayak was great. I'll be coming back here next time I'm NZ and recommending to friends.

  • Picture perfect setting

    Picture perfect setting. Enjoyed the kayaking, biking and running in this lovely location. A huge bonus were the 20 seals we counted in the bay. The home was so relaxing and we had a wonderful time at this property. Very cosy, and the fireplace was well used. It had everything we needed. Loved the photo album with a touch of history. Did not want to leave. Can't wait to return and book this property again. Huge thanks

  • This is a fantastic place to stay

    This is a fantastic place to stay. It's ideal for larger family groups like ours, the kitchen is well stocked and the views are beautiful no matter what the weather does. It's amazing to wake up looking over the sound with no houses blocking the view. I certainly hope to go back!
