    Awesome property. Had an excellent stay. Comfortable beds , great showers and everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday. Kids had a great time shooting hoops and swimming in the river. Bbq was a great addition too. Very clean and fresh home.

    The house is very well equipped with a large back yard and trampoline which our kids just loved. The location is excellent, about a 5 minute drive from the Main Street in Paihia, and less than that to the local supermarket. We stayed in summer and the swimming hole in the local river just round the corner was just great. I would highly recommend staying at this property.

  • Great property, plenty of space for a large family, immaculate and clean

    Great property, plenty of space for a large family, immaculate and clean. It is also a lovely location - very peaceful and friendly, close to Haruru Falls and short drive into Paihia one way and Keri Keri the other.
