  • WOW!

    WOW!...The property was clean and had all that was needed. The home is absolutely GORGEOUS!...We were a short drive to Whangarei township and getting extra supplie's was not a problem. This property is 10/10 for privacy. We were surrounded by tree's and bushes and NO NEIGHBOUR'S to be seen. The owner's were there but not there, if you get what I mean. Will recommend this holiday home to people looking to get away from the busy rush of the city and wanting privacy. The best home so far. Thank you

    The house is really cute, the deco is nice, gardens are fun for kids. We didn't manage to find the stream but still had fun. Wraparound balcony is great for hanging out on!

    The house was great, very well set up with plenty of space for 6 of us. The pictures do not go the place justice. Much bigger than we expected.

    The verandah on three sides of the house is great - always a spot out of the wind or sun (or rain!!), with a lovely outlook across native bush to the coast. The house is very homey and comfortable and there's plenty of space to spread out. The kitchen is well equipped with decent knives, pots, casserole dishes etc. There were plenty of plates and mugs. The location is very quiet with no neighbours within sight, but only a short drive (10 mins) to Ruakaka shops.

  • We loved our stay

    We loved our stay. The location is very private but also easy to access. The house was brilliant. We loved relaxing on the wrap around veranda, taking in the beautiful views. Would love to stay again!
