    This accommodation would have to 'be-up-there' with one of our favourites so-far! The ambience that the little Cottage has is superb A++++++ and the bed is 'like nothing-else'....SO comfortable...almost as good as our one at home. The shower is super-good too. Can't fault this quaint Cottage, location is perfect too...handy to everything, we walked to Ahuriri frequently. We can't wait to go back, thanks for sharing this awesome piece of history!
