    The cottage was comfy, cosy and secluded, set in a beautiful orchard with views over the fields and mountains nearby, but not too far from Takaka and activities in the area. Loved our stay, and hoping we come back one day. Our only problem was the toilet seat which kept falling down on us.

    The batch had everything we needed. We enjoyed the extensive VHS collection and the yummy organic fruit! A few minor things were a little annoying though. The fridge half froze the food we had in it, the toilet seat wouldn't stay up and the shower went hot and cold.


    Thanks Hanna for the feedback. We have now taken care of the above issues and appreciate you letting us know.

    Quiet with delightful hosts. Location is great for going to all the special places in the area. Nice to wake up to the smell of the citrus trees just outside the window. Sit on the porch in the sun for breakfast and just enjoy the peace and quiet before spending the day looking around this wonderful part of New Zealand. Do not miss a trip to Farewell Spit as it is an amazing place, quite unique.

    Clean and well maintained self contained cottage about 5 min drive out of Takaka town. The plunger coffee and bowl of organic fruit provided was a lovely addition. It was nice to have access to wifi for a change, as the cottage is quite close to the main house.
