    Such a beautiful setting! Rural NZ at its finest, and only a short drive to vineyards and all the boutique shops you need for a girls weekend! we are definitely going back again. Next time we’ll take our kids. Absolutely loved the spa and got plenty of use out of it. The house had everything we needed, and plenty of heaters and blankets so we were always warm.

    Great house, two fire places and a heat pump meant the house was lovely and toasty. Comfy beds, plenty of room and a lovely outlook. Only minor downside is very old showers, though they worked fine.

    House is lovely and was big enough for more people if we needed. The spa pool was a great addition too! Would definitely stay again.
