  • Everything about our stay was awesome

    Everything about our stay was awesome. The location is peaceful, birds and the views are amazing, even in the rain. The cabin is cosy, with everything we needed. Walking thru the bush was a great tonic of nature. So many very happy species of birds loving the secluded valley of native plantings and standing puriri trees. A great place to switch off the phone and relax!

  • Really lovely Bach set on a hilltop over looking the Ohiwa harbour

    Really lovely Bach set on a hilltop over looking the Ohiwa harbour. Awesome views from a cosy well set out log cabin. The driveway is steep but we were able to get our boat up and down the track. We absolutely loved our stay there. Thank you Dianne and Bob
