  • A beautifully presented home which has plenty of room indoors and outdoors

    A beautifully presented home which has plenty of room indoors and outdoors. So close to both coasts! Great communication from start to finish, would happily recommend to anyone wanting a private, quiet setting, close to the east and west coast beaches, Pukenui township and facilities. We will definitely be back.. Thank you :)

  • Great place to base for a family holiday

    Great place to base for a family holiday. Lots of room to spread out. The grounds are a bit messy - and un kept, but still a great place to relax. Wish we had been made aware of no cell phone or internet reception....maybe a landline at the house 'in case of an emergency' would be good.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedback. The grounds were a bit messy from leaves falling from trees etc, sorry can't do much about cellphone reception, did mention that plus there is a internet café a few minutes down the road in the village. Hardly worth us connecting a phone line for a holiday home, other than that glad you enjoyed your stay.
