    Selfishly I've been reluctant to post feedback as it increases enticement, however such gems give are key examples of 'the real Aotearoa'. As I said to Diane and I reinterate, "the pictures don't do it justice".

  • This property exceeded expectations

    This property exceeded expectations. We feel priviledged to have stayed in this amazing spot. The cabin was fully equipped with everything we needed. We were entirely private and we enjoyed the solitude.

  • Paradise found!!!! We loved it here and really didn't want to leave

    Paradise found!!!! We loved it here and really didn't want to leave. The log cabin is a great place to get away from it all. Cabin is run on gas and solar which is environmentally friendly. We weren't wanting for anything. Would highly recommend and we will certainly be back. Thanks Diane ??
