  • Everything exceeded expectation

    Everything exceeded expectation. The second we saw it we booked a 2nd night!! We walked into a beautiful home with the fire already lighting for us, amazing welcome card and treat, board games, music, spa pool, lovely big bath..... so many things to see and do. Yet we mostly stayed in the house n enjoyed that :) when we return to NZ we will be back without doubt!

  • We LOVED this very special holiday home

    We LOVED this very special holiday home. It was extremely peaceful, warm and very comfortable. The owners understood our specific requirements and provided us with some lovely fresh produce from their garden. Very much appreciated. Our welcoming gifts were unexpected and again very well appreciated.

  • We had a wonderful holiday at Kowhai Lodge, would highly recommend it

    We had a wonderful holiday at Kowhai Lodge, would highly recommend it. It's warm, beautifully decorated and has everything you need. Spa bath and croquet were very popular with everyone and we all slept amazingly. It's quiet and private with a short walk to the beach, which is ideal for kids. Very accommodating hosts, we are already plotting our return!
